and here we are.....house in Kelowna SOLD, waiting to take possession of our house in Brantford, living at Mom and Dad's again and travelling weekends to Peterborough to see my guy (who's staying in Mississauga), who knows how many weeks pregnant with our THIRD (unexpected) babywink emoticon with a business that's BOOMING and a new chapter just waiting to begin.
Before meeting Shaun Corkery I was all about CERTAINTY....about KNOWING the outcome of decisions I made......I wasn't one to take chances and RISK everything. I made clear, calculated decisions, and would RARELY step outside my comfort zone for fear of falling FLAT on my face.
This guy has taught me that it's OK to make blind decisions. It's OK NOT to know the answers and to just trust that things will work out. He's taught me that I don't have to be in CONTROL of EVERYTHING, and while that's really hard sometimes for me to still let go of......I KNOW that I feel so much more FREE in life since he came into it.
I cannot believe the chances we've taken.....that I've taken....moving across the country with a guy I had only seen about 12 days in total......getting engaged and married within 6 months.......moving from Kingston to Canmore to Calgary to Airdrie to Kelowna and now back to Ontario all within 7 years lol......2.3 babies later and a heart FILLED with love.......a mind filled with hope and sometimes fear......but KNOWING that we are together no matter what, so that's all we really need..........
WOW.......life is full of ups and downs, surprises and gifts.......AND OPPORTUNITIES......if we can only open our eyes to SEE them. I don't know that I would've seen these opportunities if it weren't for YOU coming into my life Shaun.
You have helped me to see......to see that life exists outside your comfort zone....the real fun, excitement, thrill, opportunity, and chance rests there.......with your ability to relinquish some control and just go with your gut......not always knowing the answers but trusting that all will be fine in the end......
That there may be ups and downs and hurdles along the way, but that you can face them and deal with them head on.......that you have the strength and the capacity to handle tough situations and not run away from them.
I'm forever thankful for YOU and the chances that I've taken in my life since you came into it. I wouldn't be here....WE wouldn't be here, if it weren't for YOU.
Oh man, my eyes are leaking........
I hope that if you, in some way, are like the old me.....constantly worrying about the what if's.......that you take a chance......believe in yourself and trust your gut and make a few decisions that you don't know the outcome to.......sometimes the greatest opportunities rest right there....JUST past your comfort zone wink emoticon
