I guess it's pretty fitting that it's #mcm cuz I freaking love this dude.
This year, I turned 31. Last month I walked across the stage at @CSU to receive my M.Ed and yesterday @thepepperedcat and I celebrated 9 years of #marriage!
It's been a long road to all of it and this guy has been there through *everything*. I can be challenging, overwhelming, just plain human. Oh, the names I've been called! But I was blessed, fortunate, lucky, whatever word you want to use, to have found my partner, my equal, my straight up, no doubt about it, soulmate.
You'll see a lot of people with the #relationshipgoals tag but I'm not one of them. I don't believe you'll find happiness standing on the sidelines, wanting what other people have. You work hard for it. And sometimes hard work isn't enough and you fail and that's ok because f it, you tried.
Don't chase other people's dreams. Live yours. Find someone who loves you, someone who you respect and who respects you. Find someone who supports you, even when that means there will be sacrifices and compromises. Know when to let go because it's what you need, and when to fight with everything you have.
We've come a long way and we've got further still to go.
