Relationships

Do you ever put your arms out and just spin and spin? Well, that's what love is like. Everything inside of you tells you to stop before you fall, but you just keep going. - Practical Magic

Recently I came across an article about finding the right person.

The author stated that the beginning of all relationships are the same. There are butterflies, you wait for the your significant other's calls, it's very euphoric. "It's completely spontaneous." It happens with no effort at all. 

Now after awhile the euphoria fades. You grow accustom to each other. The once giddy feelings you had for one another mellow out.

Ultimately it's not about finding the right person, but rather to learn to love the person your with. 

The G-man and I have been together going on almost half a decade (I just like saying it that way because it makes it sound like its a really long time.)
We've definitely had our ups and downs, but we always pull through. The "euphoric" stage has passed and we have to work everyday at our relationship. I mean everyday! Some days are harder than others, and a lot of days are really easy. Being with someone for the long haul takes patience, understanding and forgiveness. One of the best lessons that I have learned  is to choose your battles. Let some things go and fight for something that is truly important to you.
