Day 6

Today, I have to reflect on the way love changes you.

Instead of waking up these days, and thinking "I'm hungry."
I think, "I wonder if Kevin is awake."
(Shortly followed by, "I'm hungry.")

When I shop online now, I always look at the boys section.
I buy two cookies at Subway instead of one.
I smile when I see couples who are happy,
Because I know how they feel.

I can't help but bring him into every conversation,
And brag about how he is studying Neuroscience,
Or is awesome at basketball,
Or made me laugh so hard I choked on my water at dinner.

And when I pray at night,
I pray for Kevin and myself.
But mostly for the two of us as a team.
Collectively.

And so I guess you could say that love has made me less selfish.
And more myself.
Because being selfish,
Was never really me to begin with.
