A Man Who Knows My Worth

It has been another week of ups and downs... I guess that is what life is about, having ups and downs and seeing how we deal with them. I see where I could use some improvement, which is good... the past me would have been wondering why I had to deal with more challenges than I thought I was capable of handling? The me today wonders what I am supposed to be learning from them?

I haven't put my relationship out on social media and I don't plan to for a while but I can say I am dating someone, he is very nice, kind, honest and very good to me. Our challenge will be his job which takes him away for a week here, two weeks there... We still talk and text often while he is away, he is very transparent and open about what he wants. This will be up to me ultimately, what I can handle.

A little back story here about us, which I wanted to tell him first before I wrote it here... He and I were in contact about two years ago and trying to meet, before we could meet, he was transferred to another province which ended up lasting for nearly two years... we didn't talk again until a month ago when he came home and we found each other again. To say we were both extremely excited would be mild, we had a connection and we were thrilled that we were both still single.
I told him today that it really was a good thing that he had been transferred out a couple of years ago because although I was interested in him... I still was not over 'Him'... we probably would not have worked out back then as I was not ready to commit to anyone... I am actually grateful that I had that time to work through all my feelings for 'Him' so that I am ready to honestly look at being involved with someone else.

I won't have secrets from him, my life is pretty much an open book due to writing about it here and I am comfortable with that... I don't know what the future holds with us but for now it is fun, good and we are both happy to get to know each other. We have met of course and he is very sweet... we have to work a little harder to have and maintain a relationship due to his job. However; I think he is worth it and he tells me all the time I am worth the effort.
I like that, a man who knows my worth.... of course I had to know my own self worth first and once I learned that, everything else started falling into place...

  1. It is true, Launna, about life having ups and downs. Even though I know that we probably wouldn't appreciate the ups if there are now downs, it is sometimes hard for me to see and remember that when I am experiencing the downs.

  2. I love the last quotes. And I agree with your statement... I like a man who knows my worth too. :)

  3. Oh, this couldn't be more right. These men are more rare that diamonds but I'm willing to look or wait for them. :)

  4. Ah, I totally agree. That first quote couldn't be more right!! I'm so glad you found yourself someone who doesn't make you feel like you need to prove yourself and is honest and sweet. Always remember that the downs are there for a reason, and never not cherish the ups! Thank you for sharing :)

  6. <3 You know, I cant even begin to say, how happy I am for you. I remember, when you comment one of my poem...it was about love... you said: I hope that one day I can find that, too.. Not sure if it will happen... It did. :) Day by day, good things will find you. After everything... there will be always light. What we have gone through, just made us stronger... xoxo

  13. Good luck on your relationship. Long distance can be so hard. I know it's not actually long distance for you, since he will only be long distance for short periods of time. But still...that is a very long time to be away from your significant other.

    My boyfriend lives an hour away. It's only an hour but it's still long distance. It's been difficult for us to see each other, even after all these years.

    And I love what you said in the beginning. The old you would have thought, "why is this happening to me?" That sounds exactly like the old me. The new me is much like the new you :) I'm glad we're both in a better place.

    Hope you have an amazing rest of your day! <333

  23. The size of a smile of the lady? really that determines a man's worth. I guess people with money and without a sense of consideration are not really of any value. So all these TV shows with young men with money making ladies drool is a misguided notion. That makes me feel good.
    Thank you for stopping by. I have not been posting often enough. Work takes a big bite out of my time.
    Take care of yourself and keep inspiring us.

  40. Yay!!! I was hoping to find good news about this guy on your next post and here it is! Thank you for sharing this with us, by the way. It's funny how things work out sometimes, like when you said that maybe if you guys would had met years ago, this relationship wasn't going to work out because you weren't ready yet. The fact that after this time you both were still single and could get back in contact is almost like a sign. He seems like a very sweet guy for how you describe him. I happy for you, dear Launna!

  41. sounds wonderful. I'm happy to hear you 'may' have met someone special. as to the travelling. that sounds even better. monsieur travels a lot for work too. and I don't mind it at all. I like me-time every so often, and you know, the whole absence makes the heart grow fonder. a relationship can be anything you want it to be. don't let conventions dictate what is and what isn't acceptable (not that I think you are at risk of doing that anyways). happy for you xoxo

  44. I'm really happy for you Launna! I truly hope it works out as you deserve happiness. I understand fully about time apart as I'm in a long distance relationship and we actually only see each other about 8 days of the month, so it's very tough, but we have been together over 7 years now and it works. As long as you both respect each other, trust each other and have love for one another, it works and nothing can come between you!

  59. Hi sweetheart, finally catching up here.
    It's so incredible reading your relationship history because I myself can relate. Also finally together with someone I've loved for 6 years but back then he was in a relationship and I guess things wouldn't have worked out the way we would have liked.

    Anyway back to you. I am so happy for you and it is always so beautiful to find someone who you connect with, especially having history helps the relationship too <3

    You deserve the very best and finding someone who can give you all that and more is awesome :)

    Soooo happy for you

  62. Hey Launna, yes definitely... it's so important to realize the importance of relationships over stuff. But it is something hard to realize when we are constantly surrounded by stuff, stuff, stuff. I love that first quote you have up. It reminds me the importance of my self worth from the eyes of others. It is hardest when you have a relationship with someone and they are so important to you, but then they change because of some thing in their life and you realize how much you depended on them for part of how you viewed yourself. I'm going through something like that now. Thanks for sharing!

    Blessings,

It hands things to us when it knows we are ready for it... whether it be a challenge we need to beat or a happiness we can finally soak up.

I love and appreciate all genuine comments, to save a little time, I won't be commenting on the comments on my blog (unless you don't have a blog), I will just visit your blog and comment there, if you have left a meaningful comment for me... I would much rather spend the time reading and commenting on a few extra blogs ❤
