Raging Fits of Happiness

The things that light my soul on fire.

I Hear You

on January 15, 2017

There was a moment in the car last night that really crystallized for me. I was playing music and I played a song that makes me think of Travis, and he got all inspired and played a song that reminds him of me. There were parts of the song that I hadn’t fully listened to until that moment, and when I heard a certain line I looked at him. He was looking right back at me with so much excitement and adoration. I really felt the love. 

Ever since we first started hanging out 4 years ago, he always had a perfect song for every moment. I could tell you our entire playlist from when we moved across the country together. It’s full of songs that will forever be solidified in my memory. Songs that I’ve never stopped listening to. Now I’m grateful that I get to add more songs to that list. 

It’s totally perfect because he is ALWAYS listening to music, and I’ve gotten the feedback that I am music personified. 

I definitely feel heard. Like, we were sitting at Bula, on the deck, each of us reading separate books, and I placed my bookmark and put my hand on my book and looked at him. He immediately looked up and said, “Yes?” I just had a thought I wanted to share with him and he was so ready to just listen. I appreciate that so much because I feel like for a lot of my life my voice didn’t get heard or acknowledged, so when people, especially my partner wants to hear what I have to say, it honors me. It makes me feel as important as I know I am, as important as everyone is. 

Everyone deserves to feel heard. 

Well, we’re off to go meet up with his mom and sisters. I’m totally gonna write more later, because I have a lot to say about a lot of stuff. I love you all and I hope you have a wonderful day.
