- a person ideally suited to another as a close friend or romantic partner.
Two words that can change a life. I met my wife almost 6 years ago and I knew since day one that she was it, she was the one for me. The moment our eyes locked I knew that I wanted to marry this woman one day. lo and behold, here we are almost 6 years later. Married. Blessed with children, a home, a life together. I couldn’t ask for anything more.
Now I don’t want you to think that “Oh, he knew she was his soul mate from day one.” as harsh as it sounds, that wasn’t the case. Soul mate isn’t just a term that should get thrown around lightly I think. It means something deeper. The day I asked her to marry me I had never been more sure of anything before, I mean this was the person I was going to spend the rest of my life with, I had to be sure. I know now with undying certainty that she IS my soul mate. No matter the ups and downs, trials and tribulations that we are faced with, she is there. No matter the time that passes or the aged reflection that she sees of me, she remains. No matter what, she is there.
It’s funny when people ask how long we were together before I proposed and when I say a couple of months they just shake their head in disbelief. Well, when you know, you know. Simple as that. The night I met her, I remember just staring into each other’s eyes, not saying a word, but speaking volumes by sight alone. I am not really sure how to put it into words but there was no one else that had ever made me feel the way she did, makes me feel the way she does, and I know deep down inside no one ever will again.
We are two opposites that complement each other and complete each other. She’s the calm before the storm, the peace in a turbulent world. I appreciate how our personalities differ but how well they mesh together. We have our own “separate” endeavors and plans that we face and accomplish together. Unity.
I love how she challenges me to be better, even if she doesn’t realize it, she does. There are a lot of things that I have pushed myself to accomplish in order to not just make her happy but to make our lives together easier, more secure in the long run. I feel I have accomplished so much in the last 6 years than I had in the last 10 before I met her. She’s the fuel to my fire, the ink to my pen, the words to my story.
