Five years!!!!!!! It feels longer, but in a good way. Time really does fly…so much has happened! Over these years, I’ve learned a few things about relationship – say thank you, say sorry even if he’s wrong, we are both allowed to get annoyed, and “I love you” can fix pretty much everything.
Last night, I reminisced the first time Daniel and I were together by looking through our photos together and reading my journal. He really is my soul-mate. We are so the same in almost everything – well except with our physical features. Lol
The photo above shows a part of the book I’ve written for Daniel. While writing this one makes me realize so many things about him. My man is the sweetest – he loves my parents just as much as I love them, he sent me tons of bouquet of flowers, he took me to a really nice and expensive dinner at Sky Lounge in Hong Kong overlooking some of the most stunning skyscrapers with a live band playing our favorite song, he’s never ashamed of carrying me around whenever I get tired of walking and so many sweet surprises that I thought only exist in movies.
But no, he is not perfect. He’s clumsy at times which makes him more adorable. He got a bad temper, which matches mine perfectly. Ha-ha! Just imagine us fighting – it’s like world war 3! Blah! Our love story is definitely not perfect. Just like those of others… it is messy, chaotic, and exhausting at times. But still, it is an incredible one.
“The secret to a long and happy relationship is not the idea that nothing bad is ever going to happen. But it's that when something bad happens, you know how to get through it together. One of the most important things is that when you're having an argument, instead of ratcheting up the emotion, you diffuse it. In the middle of a fight, say, "I love you; you're the most important person in the world to me," even if at that moment, those words are the hardest ones to choke out because you're so mad. It reminds you both of the big picture. It doesn't make it instantly better, but it takes it down a notch. And in the cool-down period afterward, you're not left questioning. You know everything is going to be ok. Half an hour after the fight, it's over and you feel good.” - Unknown Author
HAPPY 5th ANNIVERSARY, BABE! You are God’s gift to me. You are the answer to my prayers. I love you 'til the end of time!
