I was 18 years old.

I wasn’t looking for a girlfriend.

I definitely wasn’t looking for a wife.

Little did I know I would get both.

16 years later Meg and I are still together.

Meg and I started out as friends.

She had a boyfriend.

As we talked, it slowly evolved into something more over time.

I’m not here to write fairytales and love stories.

Here’s the reason I’m writing this:

When I started talking with Meg I was into having fun.

I wasn’t looking for a relationship.

I stumbled upon it.

It naturally evolved into something more.

This is proof that good things happen unexpectedly.

This is proof that good things happen out of the blue.

This is proof that good things happen when we’re not looking.

I can’t explain it.

If you’re looking for love, I hope you stumble upon it.

If you’re looking for your dream job, I hope you stumble upon it.

Whatever it is that you’re desperately missing and searching for, I hope you stumble upon it.

Some things can’t be planned and forced.

Some things just happen.

Follow your heart.

Believe it’s out there.

And never lose hope.

Hope is enough to keep us going.
