02. Dear Future Wife
The below message really stuck with me, it talks about how you were created to make somebody else’s life better. That somebody needs what you have –your smile, your live, your words & encouragement.

The below message really stuck with me, it talks about how you were created to make somebody else’s life better. That somebody needs what you have –your smile, your live, your words & encouragement.
Those are all good things, and that you have meaning, you have a place. There’s something here for you to offer, and that’s not just the day to day grind. Or the day to day interactions we have, that there’s something out there for you to give, and be apart of. That message really stuck with me, it was almost like you’re having a conversation my future wife (whoever that is).
Then I wondered: What else would that conversation look like? As I started asking more and more questions, I started getting more than one, I got quite a few.
Dear Future Wife,
21 Questions: Will you commit to the work of building a solid foundation and match my efforts?
Can you love me in spite of my weakest moments and my darkest hours? I wake up sober every morning thankful for being alive, and for having an amazing support structure.
Will you be a Rockstar in my corner? Even on the days I work your last nerves?
Will you still be here in spite of our differences, or on those days you just don’t feel like being bothered?
In spite of my strong will and sometimes very strong opinions? Will you be here when the wrinkles or character beauty marks fully set in, and gravity wins?
Do you believe in substance over hype?
Are you down with OPP? Other people’s potential.
Is getting to know all the hidden parts of ourselves a priority for you?
Do you believe in something bigger than yourself?
Where does the higher power fit in your life?
Are you in line with your moral compass?
Are you honest with yourself & others?
Are you someone who articulates how they feel?
Do you communicate or hold it in, masking it with what you think is feminine?
Are you emotionally available?
Are you afraid to be vulnerable?
Did you know what being vulnerable is sexy & brave?
Are you afraid of stressful, by avoiding confrontation?
Or are you prepared to have the conversations that are needed?
Do you mean what you say, and say what you mean?
Are you willing to work for this relationship?
For anything to last forever it will take just as long to make. Our relationship is one of the biggest investments we will ever make. There are so many questions I have for you. My Future Wife, I am thinking of you on this beautiful day.
I loved this Facebook Post so much I had to share it.
This message relates to creating a connection with others. It eludes to there’s more value than what we perceive, it gives us hope to carry forward despite the rain that’s out there.
Thank you everyone, Take Care.
