I'm glad I have a hot wife, because even if it's for the wrong reason, everyone knows I'm a lucky man. Even if they think she's a catch because of the way she walks or smiles, even if they think she's probably a good cook (in reality an understatement), EVEN if they think I'm just lucky to have someone at all, they're right. They just don't know the half of it.
Morgan and I have been married for about a year and a half now. In that time, lots of things have changed. We've moved twice since then, she's changed jobs, and my career has evolved. Finances have gone up and down too. We've had our months of ramen noodles, and our moments of luxury.
One thing has remained cornerstone for us - Support.
I'm a creative person, with creative person needs. I think a lot of people underestimate what a serious chore living with someone like myself is! I can't focus on average daily tasks. Morgan has to remind me to do the most basic things sometimes.... like eating.
She's unreasonably patient when I need patience - she's firm when I need guidance.
Morgan is the reason I'm able to explore all the possibilities. Without her, I couldn't possibly be shooting for the stars I have my sights on now. She reminds me what I'm capable of accomplishing. She reminds me that I'm not made to live a normal life. She allows me to be me - she encourages me. She empowers me.
I could go on for quite a while, but this is already a mushy entry for the professional blog. Back to the practical message:
You must surround yourself with the right people. The people you spend your time with must share the same goals for your future. If you want to accomplish something, you absolutely cannot spend your time with those who have no interest in your success. Every person I spend any time with plays a supportive role in my art and my career.
And that's where my wife shines. Morgan is there more than anyone. She's more invested in my future than anyone else. I know I can count on her.
After all that, she is still an independent woman. She has her own future that I'm lucky enough to be a part of. School, business ventures, writing... I can't wait for her hard work to start paying off. She's been told too many times in her life that she can't do something because it's not practical. I've made it my mission to erase all traces of that message from her life. She will have every opportunity that I do. We are a team.
We are more than your everyday married couple - we are partners in crime. We are more than in love - we need each other.
And for that, I couldn't be a luckier man.
