Dear Old Me,
It may be too soon to tell, but I think this time is special. I met a guy... you met a guy. And I think it might be special. I am not sure how, but I feel electricity. Maybe it is just another chance to learn and grow. A chance to spread my wings and see how far I can fly. But whatever it is it feels good. There is something different. I know I am different, but there is something very different about this.
He asked me if he made me nervous. The truth was I felt safe. For the first time in my life... I felt safe with a man and honestly more amazing than anything I felt safe. Period. I did not feel insecure. I knew I had something to bring to the table. I did not feel afraid because I felt his hand at the small of my back, instead I felt secure like I could fall back and I knew he would catch me. I did not feel like I was settling. I felt like I had met an equal. His smile and kind eyes mirrored mine and I was not afraid to hold his gaze. I did not feel like I was out of my league nor did I feel like he was out of mine. I did not feel like I had to prove a thing or pretend to be anyone but me, just me and he thought I was perfect, adorable even. And he told me he thought so. I was not afraid to speak my mind and when I did he laughed and I knew he understood me. I was just me. And I felt safe. I have never felt safe. I have never felt like I was justified to be right in the moment. But there with him, I felt right. I felt in the moment and I felt safe.
Could this really be happening? Maybe. I am just going to enjoy the moment and I am going to make sure I thank him for making me feel safe.
Until Next Time,
