One of the people that I admire the most is Steve Jobs. He gave a commencement speech at Stanford and he talked about “connecting the dots”. He says with hindsight, we discover that all the steps we take in life were all necessary to be where we are today. Without the balance of failure and success, there would be no growth. Growth is a constant in life. I know if I had a teammate and we worked side by side in motivating and supporting each other through the process of growth, this would deepen our connection. If you share the same goal of becoming the best version of yourself, you are spiritually connected, soft with compassion, live in gratitude, possess inner and outer natural beauty, not defined by designer labels, finds joy in simplicity, has a zest for travel with the time and independence to be spontaneous, values health and fitness, and confident to be your authentic self... I am open to our possibilities.
A book that has been a useful tool for me recently is the “7 Levels of Intimacy” by Mathew Kelly. He states that intimacy is a willingness to know and be known by each other. The greatest gift two people can give to one another is sharing our hopes, dreams, fears and vulnerabilities. This transparency allows us to be seen and to be heard with out judgment. This is highest level of intimacy that we humans (for the present at least) are probably capable of achieving.
My future wife will give her hand to me, and together, we will realize how fortunate we really are to have each other. I am willing to do whatever it takes to win her heart for the remainder of the days that I am given to remain on the Earth. There is no distance that can keep us a part. If I must, I will wait for you, even if you are in a remote corner of the Earth. For me, there is no distance that I can't reach; no mountain I will not climb; or place where you can hide from me when I finally know that you exist.
You will be a woman who is smart, yet unpretentious. Someone who is tough enough to stand up to me, yet Zen like enough to raise up above turmoil; You will be independent, yet ready to make accommodations for me and our family. Down to earth, but with a touch of the ethereal. Savvy enough to know how to manage me, but secure enough to not always need to. It would not hurt to be a beautiful lanky woman, with an easy going sense of humor, who loves great food, and traveling the world with me.
