The Year Before the One

Dear 13 year old self,
Little do you know, but by the time you get to high school
you're going to meet "the one".
I know, I know. 
It sounds crazy.
And as soon as you meet him,
you're going to think he's the one.
But you're also going to think that's crazy, 
because you'll be 14, and seriously, 
who meets "the one" when their 14?
Well chick, apparently you do.

Dear 18 year old self,
At this point, you've successfully done 
everything you can to fight those initial thoughts of Robbie 
actually being "the one".
What does that even mean by the way:
"the one". 
You've become a little cynical about that whole term.
We'll be completely predictable and blame your parent's divorce for that one.
You're about to go off to college 
and you are so excited to get away and try new things. usual, you can't stop texting and meeting up with Robbie. 

You're in a completely different place right now 
than you were when you first met Robbie.
And yes, you'll both go to separate colleges
and you'll both pretend that you're "just friends"
while everyone else will know otherwise.

But this is the year that things are really going to shift for you guys.
You'll both finally be able to get over all that petty high school drama
that sucked you in so easily before.
You'll learn what a "real" sincere relationship is 
and eventually you'll stop thinking those "he's the one" thoughts are so crazy.
Your 14 year old self was a lot smarter than we give her credit for.

You'll finally let your guard completely down 
and realize that he truly is the most perfect guy for you. 
You'll allow your heart to finally admit how wonderful he is.
And you'll see God's plan and guidance through it all. 
You'll learn to be thankful for the rough patches,
because you realize they made who you are
and made him who he is.
And he is positively perfect.

You'll finally be able to admit
that yes, he stole your heart at the ripe old age of 14.
And you wouldn't change a thing.


Your turn. 
Go link up with Lisette.


And have a happy Friday, y'all!
I don't know about you, but I am so glad it finally got here!

  1. love this post. My husband and I started dating when I was 17, so I feel ya on fighting that "feeling". I thought there was no way he would be the person I would end up marrying... even though my heart totally knew it already.
