It’s as simple as this, my wife is the reason I am here today.
Not all fairy tales are kissing frogs and flying donkeys. On the outside I learned how to be confident and to some even well put together.
In reality I was an alcohol fueled freight train filled with narcotics and a hidden bag of explosives. My depression was the conductor and I’ll be honest with you guys he was a terrible driver.
To my parents I might have seemed a bit off but I would always blame it on being tired, I was in my early twenties and living the “bar life”. To my close friends they could see me slipping away at an alarming rate.
So here I am at my afternoon bar spot, I look across the room and through the doors I see my guardian angel. I immediately asked my wing man, Michelle, who the hell this stunning women is (she worked with my future wife at the time).
M: Her name is Teles………
Me: She is the most beautiful women I have ever seen.
I didn’t even let her finish saying her name I was so fixated.
Later that day, at a different bar, here she comes walking in the door and what are the first words out of my mouth?
Me: Hey I know that girl, I fucking love that girl..
Her: Was he talking to me ?
I had to meet her, there was no question that I needed this women in my life.
So I do what any pathetic young guy does, and asks her friends what some of her interests are to see where we have some common ground. Remember a couple weeks ago I posted about how the lion king played a very important role in us meeting?
That simple post gave me an in to start a conversation with one of the shyest people I have ever met.
A few nights later I picked my future wife up and we talked for 8 hours before the lion king was played. I was sweating like a nervous pig, she asked me what was wrong and I told her I have never been so scared to kiss anyone because if I mess it up I won’t get another shot.
This women gave me the flashlight to find my way out of the hole. She gave me eternal confidence and showed me how to love me for me. Not once has she ever asked me to change or that I can’t do this and that, with trusting in me to make the right choices it in turn showed me my self worth.
To my beautiful wife, Thank you.
