Doesn’t time just rush by in a flash when you’re enjoying it? Five years ago on March 1, 2008, my boyfriend and I officially embarked into our current relationship. From then till now, we’ve both improved as individuals and as a couple. Sure, we have our bumps and rough spots, but we made through those with communication and trust. We’ve learned more about each other and now we’re even at the stage that we want to do something more, talking about getting married, eventually having kids but most of all, having our own home. Jumping into the real estate market and digging out something that we’d like to call home.
Just in case you’d like to hear my mushy part (its not really) about my relationship, I did post about it last year as well which didn’t really get a lot of views because I knew no one..but its our little love story. You can check that out HERE if you’d like You have seen my boyfriend Eric in a lot of pictures already.
Love is a tricky thing. This is THE longest relationship that I’ve had EVER. I had a few relationships before this and they all broke off at around 9 months. I used to believe that I had a curse. You can laugh all you want but when that was the case and I had met this wonderful man who I personally thought deserved. Note that I’ve been working on my self-esteem. Honestly, even after 5 years, there are days I think that he really does deserve more than me. He puts up with all my craziness and emotional imbalances, busy work and before school schedules, absurd sleeping hours, weird taste in movies, but mostly my phase of being totally stupid and calling the wrong people my friends and him having to pick up the pieces afterwards. I just have a whole bunch of baggage and he’s been always around to pick me back up and let me cry and bawl my eyes out in exhaustion in the most random of times.
That my friends, potential friends and bloggers dropping by, makes him a keeper in my book. He turned me around and calmed my mind to the Kim you know today here on Tranquil Dreams. Finding a soulmate who are cares so much that in any time of day, he will just try everything and finding new ways to continuously make me laugh. That quote up there is exactly how I feel with my boyfriend. We may not be rich or anything but when we’re together, we can be ourselves and accept and love each other exactly as that and nothing less. With him, I can forget a lot of my problems and remember to be calm whenever there are, solve things as they come and takes things step by step. He helps me find my balance and helped me believe in love.
There are lots more that could happen in the future. Although these five years have had their ups and downs but today, I’d like to share all this happiness with you.
At the same time, say to my boyfriend (who will read this when he gets off work) that there are many uncertainties in our life but with all that we have built, I’m confident that we will make it through all this and we can work anything out together. Even when we have bigger and more stressful times ahead as we further build our lives together in the coming years, we can do it!
Happy 5th Anniversary to the love of my life!
Okay, I’ll be handing out the barf bags now..anyone need one? Glad only one of these a year, right? I’ll stop, I promise!
Thanks about reading my ramble (and I’ll get back to the normal stuff tomorrow) Hope everyone has a very very happy and fantastic Friday!
