I am thankful for so much this year, it’s hard to keep track.
Beyond the basics of family, friends, health, etc., I am most thankful for being on the same page as my leading man.
I’m sure this sounds pretty standard. This is one of those things that should be at the top of the list of “must-haves” when feeling out a serious relationship, so it should really be a given since we’re engaged. But I must say I think we do this part extra well.
We have the same set of foundational values and are motivated by the same things, which I think sets us up for success in staying on the same page as one another. It leads to our goals automatically being aligned and allows us to work really well as a team because even though the things we do are different, we do them for the same reasons. I will say though that I tend to take all of this for granted and I stop communicating all of the things. Working on remembering that he can’t read my mind.
But really, this aspect of our relationship is my favorite. It brings us closer together and really provides a framework for an exciting future. We dream together and are so thrilled about what’s to come that it only makes sense to take steps towards making things happen. We’ve realized that the goals we are aiming for really require both of us to reach them. We are better together than we are apart.
This all comes in handy particularly when someone can’t see our vision. Being on the same page together gives us confidence in one another and keeps up continually supportive of one another. We are calculated decision makers. We go over detail after detail to really make sure we known what we want. While we are not the biggest of risk takers, the ones we take are the ones we feel are stacked in our favor.
We also know that change is inevitable. We see failure as an opportunity for growth. We are in each other’s corner and will see each other through the things that don’t work out. Maybe I’m naive, but this make me feel like I can take on anything. I know that my leading man will be there by my side getting involved however he can and he knows that the same is true of me.
I can without a doubt say that we are on the same page and I couldn’t be more thankful for that.
What are you thankful for?
