Oh my. I have so much to share with you about my anniversary date with Michael!
It began with dessert first! I made our favorite a “Lilikoi Cake” a.k.a., passionfruit, which we served at our wedding. Then we headed out to a wildly romantic dinner at a new restaurant called Del Friscos, on the San Diego Harbor. As we dined, we reminisced about our honeymoon to Lake Louise, and our other trips to far-flung places like Greece, Italy, New York, and Montana. I was struck by the realization that our relationship has just been so easy. We get along so well. Michael continues to go out of his way to make me happy. I couldn’t stop gazing at my handsome husband across the table.
You may wonder, how did I get so lucky?
Luck had nothing to do with it!
I was brave and jumped into internet dating even though it made me nervous. And once Michael and I started seeing more of each other, I took the right steps all along the way by speaking my truth, practicing the tools I teach, staying grounded in who I am and not turning myself inside out during our courtship. I still don’t!
It’s not luck, it’s work, to be the happiest couple I know and lead a wonderful life. It’s the work of listening to each other, being kind, allowing each other space, communication – but none of this is a chore. When you’re with your soulmate, you know that even the tough stuff is for the greater good of your relationship, and that is a priceless feeling.
I’m telling you all this in the hope that it will inspire you to take that leap, that step that can ultimately lead you to your own Michael.
