Happy 2nd Anniversary my Love

Dearest Kris

It has been 730 days since we said, I do.

I have loved you more and more every day for the past 2 years and I expect that I will continue to do so exponentially as we share the rest of our lives together.

You have been the rock in our relationship, steady, dependable, unconditionally loving and cherishing me every single day. Thank you! For loving me at my best and loving me more at my worse. I couldn’t have asked for a better husband. Going to bed with you beside me and waking up every morning beside you completes my day.

You have accomplished so much this year and I want to let you know that I am extremely proud of you. I will continue to support you as best as I can, in your quest to awesomeness!

Happy Anniversary my love!

 

 

Reflection

A recent spate of events reminded me of how sometimes, I become my very own worse critic.

I treat people with respect, patience and kindness but sometimes I forget that it is equally, if not more important to treat myself with patience and kindness.

So today, I will dust off the wounds and accept that it is okay to fail from time to time.

The more important lesson is, how can I learn from this mistake and be a better Charlene tomorrow.

On a side note, the hubby is making huge inroads in his (new) business. I put new in parentheses because I’m not sure if 1.5 years is still classified as new. Intelligence, persistence, diligence and courage are some of the values that he has exemplified over the last 2 years and I couldn’t be more proud of him! I seldom use the word deserved, because I find it somewhat entitled but I’m going to make the exception and say that he deserves all the success he’s going to get from this business, because of the crazy ass amount of work that he has put into it!

My smart little puppy! *pats pats*

Being present

I do not know what I will end up doing in the future and it sometimes scares me.

However, I do know that I am in control of the present and I can either worry about the future or just focus on whats on my plate today and do the very best I can. Little by little, I can be better than who I was yesterday.

*fist pump*

School is hard and new concepts are always mind boggling, I get frustrated when I don’t completely understand what I am reading or how to go about writing a research proposal from an educational psychology perspective. Then I remind myself that there is no need to always be so hard on myself! The reason why I am in school is precisely because I don’t know these things! If I already do, then I don’t need to be in school!
