Most Fridays we have the MIL with us, which makes for light-hearted, event and people based chit-chat.
“How are these people going?”
“How was work?”
“What are the weekend plans?”
“What will you do on Sunday?”
“Did you hear about that?”
and so on.
Tonight however, it was just US – baby girl, hubbie and I. And quite surprisingly and happily, we started to get into it.
He dropped some surprising statements, which had me slightly reeling – just from the sheer unpredictability of it ever being said.
“What? Are you serious? Seriously, I feel like I don’t know you.”
All good, and nothing bad. Just different, and eye-opening. We got into some d&m, and you know the convo has gone deep and fulfilling, when the dinner sit-down has long passed the eaten food that has come and gone before it.
“Well if I do this, with your talent here, and my knowledge there, we could both – “
Now I was reeling, again. I know this is a whole lot of blah blah blah to the rest of the world, but after our talk I had the most profound sense of I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT TO EXPECT FROM LIFE.
We always talk about living life to the full, and cramming as much experience and fun and passion into what we have been given here on earth, yet still, for a man that I know so, so well, he had me absolutely stunned and baffled.
And as I dwelled on it, I realised I loved it.
I’m not a person to stay stagnant, and remain in the same role or field for the rest of my life. And seeing that he is the same, and just like me is open to new and exciting experiences, if only to explore and see where the open doors lead him, well that is equally exciting to watch and be a part of.
I love that we are passionate, we know what we love, but also, we love to keep things exciting, fresh, and moving on.
To be inspired by the man in your life, and find even greater motivation to love him, well…
that is something I am eternally grateful for.
And all from a Friday night convo. All good things come from Fridays…
