One year ago today marked a turning point in our lives, the beginning of a path together for M and I. Or, maybe just a fork in the road we were already on, and we chose the proper path, the one we could finally see clearly, the one that truly suited us. I know, without a doubt, our time together, spent just as it was spent, took us to that fork in that road at that precise moment. We were finally ready, together, to walk this path as one.
Despite every stumble and fumble, the facing of truths and the working on our individual selves, we’ve come to a place together I never imagined was possible, not even when I thought I knew what we were beginning. This wonderful place of full disclosure and transparency, trust and communication, passion and the deepest love I’ve ever known. It’s a place of peace. Not that it’s easy, but it’s truly free. He is He and I am me. We are we. And, we soar, together in this freedom.
For the first time in my life, I look to the future and I can imagine a happy, fulfilling rest of my life…..because I already am.
