When someone asked how did I find love I laughed. Because honestly it came and hit me like a 94mph fast pitch. I have always prided myself on being a strong independent woman who doesn't need a man and I still am. The only thing now is that I have a man.
I found love by following my laughter.
I found love by being a friend.
I found love by taking chances.
I found love by letting my heart lead.
I found love by being me.
That was the biggest thing. I could be me. I stayed true to myself and that's how I found love. Every little girl dreams about being a princess and finding her prince in some magical way. And I believe I did have a magical way in finding love but probably not one they would make a movie about because it was at an old bowling alley and culvers. It was a friendship that evolved into more. I wasn't really looking for love, love found me. Everyone around me was in a relationship and I was just happy being me. I'm not going to lie there was definitely times when I wanted someone but, I think I wanted someone just to have someone. And by no means is that how you are going to find love. I have been through a couple of different relationships and what I can tell you about the relationship I'm in now is that I have been able to be 100% myself the whole time and that was something different for me. In past relationships I felt as though I would lose myself to make the other person like me more. You can't love someone else if you don't love yourself. Now I had heard this quote many times in the past and didn't believe it. But in the process of finding my boyfriend I also found myself. Crazy right, it was like a two for one deal. Going into this relationship was a lot easier for me because I already knew he accepted me for me because we were friends first and I think that has truly made our relationship stronger.
So even though I might never have a movie made about my high school love story I think I'll be okay. Because in the long run this relationship has given me more then just a boyfriend its help me find me.
