you.

i'm supposed to blog about part two of my taiwan trip but this kinda takes centrestage for now - here's to a very special someone:
you, were never quite the person i imagined myself to be with. i remember telling you straight in the face that you weren't my type. i had a checklist and you didn't seem to be able to tick many of those boxes - you had no paper qualifications, no parents, seemingly no similarities in hobbies, didn't gave a hoot to social/political issues nor my achievements, and had no idea who the hell sylvia plath was. 
we were from two different worlds; 
i said it was impossible between us. but you never gave up.
i had just come out of a five-and-a-half-year relationship and was nursing an aching heart. i wasn't ready for anything or anyone.
i told you to stay away. but you didn't.
through the months, i saw you for who you really are - one who firmly stands by his beliefs, one who fiercely treasures relationships, and one who gives his love unconditionally. orphancy had moulded your independence and drive and i admired you for that - there's nothing more important than a man who knows where he's going in life. 
when you popped the question, i was hesitant. all it took was a single sentence from you - "if you don't try, you'll never know". i drew my breath and said okay, because what had i to lose but a heart that had already been badly bruised and trampled upon?
friends were skeptical when we got together. afterall, they only knew you as the guy who didn't get to tick most of the boxes on my checklist. little did they know that by then, the checklist had already ceased to exist.

life's defined by the decisions you make, no matter right or wrong, and i'm glad i threw caution to the wind - 'cause this happiness is real and is here to stay. at least for as long as we want it to.
so, happy anniversary love.
it has been an awesome year for us and here's to more to come.
xoxo,
sharon
