Things that get me through (aka, bring me back to reality). . .
My siblings. We fight, we don't always get along, but we will always have each others back. I have 5 siblings, and I don't see all of them, all the time, but they will always be my brothers and sisters, and I love them all.
My twin sister.
My parents-in-law. Most people find real faults in their in-laws, but I would have to disagree. I'm completely blessed to have a close relationship with mine.
My niece & nephew, Tyler & Isabella. My cousins, Jack & Lily.
My faith. Our God, our Savior!
Finally. . .
My soulmate. Having a husband is one thing, but having a soulmate is a completely different story. People question the existence of soulmates, but I beg to differ. They are real, I'll defend that until the day I die. Being with someone you were intended to connect with since before you were even born, I can't even explain how it feels. We've been together for almost nine years (with minor hiccups in between, that I'm not ashamed of). That's practically a decade of being with my soulmate, and some never even get the pleasure of meeting theirs. [Grateful]. If anything brings me back to reality, that does. It's not always butterflies and roses, but it shouldn't be. You need one emotion to recognize the importance of another. I love him like there's no tomorrow, thank you Jesus that you have allowed him in my life.
Whew! I feel a lot better now reminding myself what's most important.
What gets you through & brings you back to reality?
