I can’t thank you enough for reading me New Year’s Day!
We started off the read with you telling me 2013 is about ‘claiming oneself’ and ‘making changes’ … ‘cutting ties.’ I definitely needed to hear that. Here we are – the first day of a new year – and I’m allowing myself to be locked into others’ opinions. This brings me to my questions I had…
On the 27th of December, my now fiancé proposed to me, causing much upset among my family. I needed confirmation that I am not crazy to listen to my own feelings. And not listen to the opinions of my immediate family telling me how wrong my sweetheart and I are for each other. You gave me that confirmation and so much more.
As soon as I told you about becoming engaged, you sounded very excited for me – this I took to be a good sign. You said I am very lucky, and, indeed, have found my true love. I have been feeling that way, but how nice to actually hear it. You had read me back in August and we briefly touched on my current relationship. You said you were very happy with the two of us together and asked if I wanted to know more – I declined – saying “No, not right now.”
In THIS read – one of the first things you said to me was about how very sentimental he is about ‘the ring.’ It was funny because I said “Yes, he is extremely sentimental about it. It was handed down through his family and over 100 years old!” (You made the comment about not having any way to know that.) It was just so natural when you said it, and knew the sentiment without having any way to know. I love that! You hit it right on the head and it was impossible for you to know that!
Another remarkable thing was when you made a reference to how he is very sweet and comes across as being like ‘Charlie Brown.’ Yes that’s the perfect description of him! His own mom had made that reference before. 😉 You also made a reference to the movie “Romancing the Stone” and how it is important to keep the engagement and wedding very personal and romantic – not making a big fuss over it. The two of us had already been talking about how we want to elope rather then make a big thing over our wedding. You said, “That’s perfect!”
I have been bothered by discouraging comments my family has been making, and you so beautifully put each of those worries to rest for me.
You also said “If it’s not about him, they will find something else to argue over. It’s just like ‘ivy growing up a wall’.. it’s just going to keep on growing and you can’t stop it. ” You told me it’s very important to cut some strings with those discouraging me from my true love and happiness.
You were so right.
Carla, I thank you from the bottom of my heart and now am truly so excited about this coming year! I can’t thank you enough for saying to me “If you let your true love go – you are nuts!” I know this was the best 15 minutes I possibly could have asked for starting off a new year.
Thank you for sharing some of your magic spark with me once again, Carla.
The most important thing you said to me was “Remember to be patient ..it’s worth it.”
Thank you again,
