I finished the book a few minutes ago (Yes, I read it in one day). It was really good. I love when books and stuff inspire me to be a better person.
When I used to read love stories I would always fall in love with the character. I would want to know that guy because he was perfect. And I was always so sad when I reminded myself, he doesn't exist. However, that has all changed. Now when I read stories like that It just makes me love and miss my hubby even more. I no longer fall in love with the guy from the book, I have my guy from the book. As cheesy as that sounds, its true. Kendall has always been one to open the door for me, even before the Army (now he just does it even more) And he has always made sure to balance my needs with those of his own. Before he left he made sure to make time for the things that were important to me (although they are cheesy I'm such a hopeless romantic. So I've always wanted the big date nights, the drives through the country, and the cheesy things they did in A Walk to Remember (I see a theme, Nicholas Sparks is a genius)). However, whenever Kendall was home he made sure that he made time for those things in between his video games and playing guitar. That has always meant so much to me.
I'm not really sure why i'm writing this on here for all to read, but I wanted to write it somewhere ha. So here we are.
I guess I'm just saying I don't need that guy from the love story anymore, because I have my own story right here, although it's not even close to being finished. I'm aware there will be those struggles, I mean come on, what story doesn't have them? Everything is perfect and then things happen and they have to work through it. But in the end it was always worth whatever work it took to get there. I know to some that may seem naive or a foolish way of thought, and maybe it is. But i would much rather live my life naively yet intensely happy, then so realistic you can't see the magic in anything.
So I've decided I'm going to live my life with that magic. I'm starting a list of things that I want to do (Note new addition to the sidebar). Most of them pretty simple, some more complex. Although my ultimate goal is to do them before I die, we're going to say I want to do them before Kendall deploys (We'll do a short-term goal here :)). Now, I don't know when Kendall is going to deploy. It could be as soon as 4 months from now, it could be in a year, or it could not happen, we don't know. But i think that's the fun in it. I don't know. We're in this situation now, whether we want to be here or not, so why not make the most of it? Why not live the life we've always wanted, even if it's in a little more of an unconventional way?
Now how I got to my goals from talking about my husband i'm not really sure ha. I guess that has to be due with me being spaghetti (if you're wondering what that means just ask). So sorry for those of you who are waffles (again, you can just ask) and didn't quite follow... :)
Well I guess all I can say is Have a nice day!
