What the long game of love teaches us
The long game of love is a slow steep, it is the willingness to walk the path together regardless of whether or not you are familiar with the terrain.
It is learning how to sit together at the resolution table to talk it out. It is shared silence, and future dreaming.
It is holding the ladder so your partner may rise and softening the fall when they do fall.
It is holding the ground when your loved one is wavering. It’s cultivating shared language that holds hope and sweetness and safety.
It is becoming the best friend you can be.
It is becoming comfortable with uncertainty at times, while holding your gaze on the horizon of possibility.
The long game of love is about doing your own inner work so that you love yourself deeply enough for love to authentically pour out of you.
It is saying “ I don’t have the answer but I’m willing to learn”
the long game of love is steady, not hasty.
It is the long and winding road with an ever evolving landscape, and it is also home.
As we cross over to year 22 of our own unique long game of love we treasure the sacred idle times. A quiet frequency, our family, a business that is full of our souls energy - individually and together. Loving each other these days is about compromise, the wisdom of faith and the deep knowing that comes from circling through life so closely with another. It is saying the things that get stuck in your throat. It is letting tears fall and not having to fix or change any of it. It is being a soft witness to the evolution of your best friend.
What a joy to love you all these years ❤️❤️ ———————
