“With all these forks in the roads of our path, why do so many choose to take the knife?”

(As I mentioned earlier, I am setting in motion a series of posts that will share how my husband (the most amazing man in the world) and I eventually crossed paths. It begins here...)
My life is divided into two segments:
1) Before I met the most amazing man in the world
2) After I met the most amazing man in the world
|My rebel years.|
One wonders how someone who had the most gentle, loving, kind, patient and honest father would team up with a man on the opposite end of the spectrum. Well, I was young and immature and naïve and vehemently rebelling against the oppressive community I was raised in by shunning everything in it. Even the nice guys.
I swung the pendulum a little too far - as a rebellious nature will often do - and this led to the unintentional rejection of men like my father. The radical route I was on led to a lengthy and horrible relationship (and misaligned mindset) that took years to shed.
In any case, my ex and I dated (and fought and fought and fought) for several years and because I continued to foolishly believe that things would get better if I tried hard enough, we got married when I was 24. And that journey began.

(Incidentally, on the day my ex and I got married, the most amazing man in the world – who also has an ex - met the woman he would marry a few years later. The timing is remarkable.)
Have a wonderful weekend, everyone. And happy Easter to all who are celebrating!
