I admit that there are times I find my fiancé and my differences frustrating. Yet in truth, when I pause to think about our differences, it is those very differences that make us stronger. He is more grounded while I am more the dreamer. I search for the natural, organic solution while he can tell me the properties and uses of each medication on the shelf. I could go on for the hundred ways we are different or even the hundred ways we are similar. The similarities help us understand each other but it is our differences that truly give us strength. When the way I see something is not working, I can lean on his knowledge and resources and vice versa. I'm grateful for all he has taught me and all I have been able to teach him. I'm grateful for his roots so I can spread my wings. I'm grateful to listen even when I may not agree in the moment. More than likely the time will come later on where I can use that knowledge. I'm grateful for a relationship that is growing and strengthening. And I'm grateful for a loving man walking next to me. Who in your life shows you another side of things? Are you able to step back and see the beauty of these differences? Sometimes that can be difficult but for me it has never gone without rewards. May you find strength in the differences of beliefs and ideas in the people in your life. May you take a moment to celebrate these differences. Have a beautiful day!
I believe the way to a better future starts with gratitude today.
