Honesty is the best policy they say... though sometimes a little white lie here and there is good for measure. Brutal honesty can be hurtful, so being careful when telling the truth sometimes means bending it just a little bit. However when it comes to matters of the heart, nothing but the truth will suffice.

Have you ever in your life had a no holds bar, completely honest, tell it like it is, hold no prisoners, honest to God conversation with your spouse, partner, significant other that started out fearful, insecure, hesitant yet ended on such a high note that you came out feeling confident, happy, satisfied and hopeful to the future. I did. I had that conversation last night with Hubby... and it was wonderful.

Of course we'd had conversations of a similar kind many times before, but this was so gut wrenching honest and free and liberating, yet comforting... certain things that were said, certain questions that were asked and answered, the speeches that were made were of a kind never spoken between us before, for fear really, of what each others' reaction to the truth would be. Yet somehow, last night, the 'ugly' truth was a long time coming that left us drained yet uplifted.

While I will not (or cannot) go into details about what our conversation was about, it's a conversation EVERY committed couple should have... especially couples who have reached many points in their relationship where they begin to question themselves and their partners and the 'reason for it all'. The answers might not be what you want to hear (if everyone is being completely honest), but it so puts things into perspective and shows you where to go from there.

I am so happy we had that talk last night... and I know where I want to go from here... and it feels so good.
