After nearly a year of being in a cross-country relationship, I now get to wake up next to my best friend in the entire world. Josh and I are both seriously so blessed to have families whom have the ability to support us in every sense of the word, and I really attribute our home lives to why our relationship has lasted. All too often when things get hard, or a relationship isn’t as smooth as both would like, they give up. There were certainly times when we had rough patches, and nights spent crying with a hopeless desire for a simple hug; but now, as I wake up in the most beautiful place I know, it all seems worth it.
Living on Love was one of those songs that is engrained in your brain from childhood, and the lyrics don’t really make much sense until you actually live them. I think now is the time when the both of us have the sense that our worlds completely coincide within each other, and we would do absolutely anything for the other. We don’t need frilly things, and we don’t even have a kitchen table, but we make time to spend true quality time together and immerse ourselves into each other.
I moved across the country to heal the ache that I was feeling every night, and it’s so satisfying to know that the leap of faith I was making was the best decision I could make. They say that your 20s are your selfish years, and I think that this is so true. We aren’t selfish independently, but in the sense that we are willing to be selfish for the greater good of our relationship.
