One Person in the World

With over 7.7 billion people in the world, how could so many believe that there is just one person meant for them? One true love. One soulmate. Two people that find each other, through serendipity, and promise to love only that person for the rest of their lives.

We may spend years searching for that one love. Some are fortunate to find him/her early in life while others fall in and out of love, for however long it takes. This can be an important process as you come closer to what you are ultimately searching for through each relationship.

Numerous studies agree that true love happens just once in a lifetime.

Everybody wants that fairytale story – living happily ever after. 

Even though I was one of the lucky ones to find my Prince Charming at an early age, I wouldn’t always consider it a fairytale. Some days I don’t fit in my “princess gown,” and singing to birds and other animals does not make them magically clean my house, but that’s okay. 

Living “happily ever after” takes work and effort on the part of both partners – some days more than others. When you find that one true love, life becomes an ongoing adventure and an unending educational journey full of love, mutual respect and friendship.

True love brings a couple happiness in more ways than they could ever imagine. They find comfort and safety with each other that no one else on Earth can give them. True love builds your self confidence and makes you want to be a better person for yourself as well as your partner. Common interests and a desire to try new things together will only help your love grow and give you endless topics to discuss through the years.

Having someone to share all aspects of your life with can bring numerous health benefits and help you live a longer, more productive life. You don’t have to worry as much when you have your partner to talk to, thus less stress and less wrinkles on your face!

Your true love gives you peace of mind. Trust. With trust there is no jealousy, or suspicion or doubts. No fear of being hurt physically or emotionally – ever. 

For me, it’s all the little things that keep our love strong. After 47 years together, he still makes my heart go pitty-pat and my tummy flutter when he walks into the room or steps on stage. He can make me laugh, even when I don’t want to. He openly loves and adores our children and grandchildren with every fiber of his being, which I find very attractive. 

Most importantly – we never take our love or each other for granted. Ever.
