Love,

This was a hard last few months. I understand that I neglected you and spent a whole lot of time reading, studying and researching. It was very hard on you. Especially when I spent nearly 12 hours a day on the Internet. But everything happens for a reason and I learned a lot about myself and life in general. I also learned a lot about the two of us as a married couple.

I still have a lot to learn and I still need to grow. I make a lot of good goals for myself but as you know, I take 10 steps forward then 9 steps back. But the important thing is that we are both moving forward, even after I take 9 steps back. 

One of the best things of 2016 (so far) is that it is the year we started seeing reality in a similar way. You started seeing things in a more material sense, and from a practical and realistic standpoint, and I started realizing that 'non-scientific claims' are probably an unproven science (in specific situations). It is also the year I started praying again in a deep way to rewire my brain and reclaim the inner peace (read more) and mental calmness I once had.

This is a letter of appreciation and a letter of love since it is our 6 Year - Wedding Anniversary but it is also a tired and almost exhausted form of success. This is the month we nearly finished the foundation for our future. The year where everything starts to fall into place and life pays us back for all the sacrifices we made (for ourselves, each other and our family). I can also see us giving back to society in positive ways somewhere along the horizon. That makes me happy too.


Thank you for supporting me. Thank you for overcoming the culture shock of marrying someone completely different. And thank you for being a beautiful person that always grows, always learns and improves every year. The two of us will keep growing, building and loving. 

Love you so much and good job. You've done well :)

- Chris
