Only once in your life, I truly believe, you’ll find someone who can completely turn your world around, and you’re able to tell them things that you’ve never shared with another soul, and they absorb everything you say. Actually wanting to hear more.
Swapping hopes for the future, dreams that have yet to become a reality, goals that were never achieved. On top of the many disappointments life has thrown your way, and of course, this is after you’ve opened your heart, knowing that there’s a chance it may be broken one day. In opening your heart, you experience a love and joy never dreamed possible.
By being vulnerable in stepping out on what if’s, you’ve allowed your heart to feel the true pleasure it was made to feel, along with what you deserve as a Queen… so real it scares you. In the same instance it gives you strength in knowing you’ve found a true friend and possibly soul-mate, who will remain loyal to the end. Who’ll never intentionally hurt your feelings nor make you feel like you’re not good enough. But rather build you up and show you the things about yourself that make you special, and even more beautiful by being just who you are. Our personalities are often molded by how we’ve been treated in the past or how we allow ourselves to be treated today. I’m not perfect, but I believe I’ve messed up enough in the past to know how to do the right thing, right now.
Everything is meant to mean something, and you’ve stopped here for a reason. Today can be the day we begin to build on something worth holding on to with each other.
I was told by my grandmother once: “We can only be said to be alive in those moments when our hearts are conscious of our treasures. When a woman knows her sense of worth hold on to her, because behind every strong man there’s a stronger woman.” Therefore I’m a firm believer that self-confidence in a woman is the only thing that cannot be faked. So if you have this quality and also family oriented, God-fearing, driven and serious, come talk to me; a devoted father whose bad choices have given him a brand new outlook on what’s to be treasured.
