I’m here. I’m not going anywhere. I promise. I pledge. For however long we are both here in time, the hope, plan, dream, and goal is with you, always.
I’m me. I’m not you. I’m not trying to get you to be me. I’m not trying to be someone else. You’re helping me to be me (in both what is good and what is flawed). I’m here with you to be, not to do (though “I do” out of who I am, my being).
Interest. Thoughts about what I don’t know. Mystery about myself, about you, about us. Thinking outside of myself. Committed to asking questions that are not disguised agendas. Listening to what’s possible. Talking with not at. Exploring different viewpoints, points of view.
Always be curious is the invitation to explore your lives together, not alone or apart or as though one of you has figured it out.
