Are You Appreciating Those You Love?

In the early morning hours of 11/11/2021, I had a strange dram. I wasn’t married, I didn’t have a child on the way, and I was straight up miserable. That is, until my past love re-appeared. I was suddenly so happy to not be alone! Even though our relationship was toxic, and he’s happy now, and I’m so glad for him, the dream made it feel like that was my only option.

Something is better than nothing, right?

I was very quickly awoken by my sciatica issues, but it took me some time to return back to reality. When I did, the first thing my sleepy husband (it was like 5am) asked me was: Are you okay? Are you hurting? Are you cold?

Ad then it struck me.

Wow. How lucky am I? How lucky am I to have found such an amazing soul, one who is so pure and takes such good care of me? I believe 11/11 is a magical date when it comes to manifesting. I also believe this moment was a clear sign that I should be so much more grateful for him, and everything else I have. Grateful to the universe for letting me see him on the bus that day in 2009, falling in love instantly. Thanking it that it allowed us to meet again some years later, click, and get to where we are now.

And I am so, so grateful to my husband that he exists, that he chose me, and that he’s choosing me every day. I should start telling him that a lot more.

And you? Do you appreciate those you love enough? If you think the answer might be “no” – it’s a good time to start.
