The One3 mins 251 3 mins 251
‘The One’ isn’t a fable. He isn’t a mythological force. He doesn’t exist in the deepest recesses of my imagination alone. He is as influential as the moon and as constant as the sun. He lives and breathes in this world—this literal, physical place—and if you listen, trust and try, you’ll stumble into his arms and never lose your steps again.
When you’ve found your ‘ONE’, you will know. Deep in the pit of your stomach, where your deepest, intuitive thoughts are birthed, you will know. He will become a permanent fixture there, a grounding force that leads you again and again to home.
You will know he is the one when your life has been compromised and changed forever. This new life will be alien and awkward, but delightful and inspiring too. You will fumble through sentences that never quite articulate the bliss that surges beneath your skin, but you will also feel more ‘you’ than you have ever known yourself to be.
‘The One’ will light up your most authentic self. He will breathe life into dormant pockets of power and quell the fires of self-doubt. You will rediscover the pieces of you that are magnificent. He will bring your beauty—your unique, unadulterated beauty—into focus and you will gasp at the sight. You will grow and have the energy to grow more. You will love with a brave heart. You will risk everything, even heartache, to walk hand-in-hand with this man.
Because ‘The One’ will challenge everything you have ever believed about love and marriage and human connection. He will bend pre-conceived ideas about what love looks like. He will be the most beautiful sight you have ever laid your eyes on. You will devour every delicious flaw and smile in disbelief that this is the man you call yours.
He will transform your definition of trust, because never before were you able to trust so effortlessly, so purely. And, never before did you know such unyielding commitment to another heart.
You will see the world through a new set of eyes. You will find yourself thinking, I can’t wait to tell him about this. And when you do finally see him, you will be so wrapped up at the moment; you will forget that you ever had anything to say.
Life will be filled with intense conversation followed by spells of comfortable silence. You will know peace. You will know joy. You will laugh until tears leak from your smiling eyes.
There will be a feeling of falling, but this isn’t a passive event. You will fall together. You will fall deep into the earth where you will send out roots—a foundation of love before you rise together, stronger than either of you could manage alone. And you will move to the sky with outstretched arms and the whole world will spin around you, through your fingers. You will feel alive. You will see that with stability comes a special kind of freedom.
With this man by your side, you have a chance to evolve in ways you never could without this mirror. He will shine a light on your injuries, the ones you had just as easily kept hidden from the world. You will see pieces of your past break the surface of your today and you will face them because things have changed. You have changed. Love has entered a sacred space in your heart. He is your North Star. He is your safety. He is home. He is the true definition of love.
His love was well expressed in words. The line he writes about me makes me feel a writer’s love is a true blessing. ‘The One’ or ‘My One’ was a full package of romance. His cheesy lines, his attractive smile, and his enchanting looks were a pleasure to my soul.
Love has the power to transform us into a new version of ‘us’.
