Chapter 2: Sentiment

Some people get what they want, but then they act like they don’t want what they’re given. I think its because sometimes the form it takes isn’t quite the form they wanted. That the person giving it & the manor in which it’s given isn’t what they wanted. Or maybe the timing is simply off. Or maybe, it’s just that when you don’t know what you want nothing is ever enough. 

And I think that’s the real tragedy. That life gives us exactly what we’ve been wanting but we fail to embrace it. Simply letting those moments & people pass us by.

To My Future Wife,

I don’t think I’ve ever wanted something so much. I don’t even think that I’ve ever felt this vulnerable thinking about a future that I can look forward too.. I’m scared but at the same time I’m not afraid if I get hurt. I wonder what goes through your mind when you think about me, do you think about me throughout the day? do you think of a future where the two of us are taking on the world? Is it wrong for me to think of a future with a wife I may not have even met yet? I hope that one day you’ll feel as strongly about me as I do you. I have a tendency to fall really hard when I feel that something is right. I become the most loyal, trustworthy person that I could ever be. I’ll always be here waiting for you for as long as it takes. I already feel your love… the warmth that you’ll bring to my heart every day.. This feeling gives me chills throughout my body. I just want to love you, to be with you, to start a family of our own, and to enjoy everything that we and the world have to offer each other.

p.s. I can’t wait to experience the world with you by my side
