It’s funny how life always keeps us on our toes and always hands us the unexpected. I found love when I least expected to find it. After traveling across the world to “find myself”, my motives in life became based on me, and only me. After living a life focusing on others, and letting others make decisions for me, it was time for me to start etching my own rare and unique story. I wanted to live an exotic life with a job that allowed me to travel and experience culture. I wanted to take care of myself and rely on only me for a while. It seems that all my life I had lived in effect to my family situations, especially being the youngest of my 3 siblings. I had reached the time where I wanted to speak with my own voice and live for myself. It sounds selfish but I knew it was my turn to make something of myself. We all have to be a little selfish sometimes. After re-focusing my views in life and making goals for myself, I thought I had my life all planned out. It’s like I made checkpoints for each age in my life and had this pre-written story. As I forgot about dating and started spending my free time engaged in other activities and spending time with friends, I felt content and happy. As I spent time focusing on myself, little did I know I was actually preparing myself to meet the man of my dreams. I wanted to wait until at least twenty-five to settle down and get married but at twenty years old, I happened to meet a man that would change my life forever. Just when I thought love was something I didn’t need at that time, it came knocking on my heart. I came to find out that love, of all things, has set me free more than anything. I have a man by my side for eternity to be my best friend and to root for me, hold me, and support me. Love has motivated me to do more than I ever imagined doing. Dreams are becoming realities because love was a dream I never fathomed of becoming a reality for a very long time. It’s funny how life always keeps us on our toes and always hands us the unexpected. I found love when I least expected to find it, and love has truly set me free.
