Let me tell you all a story about being content.

For 29 years, I’ve felt like my life was a little… purposeless. Like I wanted to bring some joy to a lot of people, but I wasn’t sure how to do it. I wanted to entertain people. I wanted to make people happy. I wanted to bring people true bliss.

I’ve tried every possible avenue. Music. Stage acting. Movies. Stand-up comedy. Professional wrestling. Now wrestling, I think I’m pretty good at, but when it comes to bringing someone joy, and truly knowing that I make that person’s heart beat just a little fast, and make them want to live just a little longer, I’ve found the perfect avenue for such a thing.

Liz is not made up of the millions of people I wish to bring happiness to, but rather a million little things that make her so perfect for me. She’s dynamite in such a small package. She loves me, no matter what. She sees me for who I am, understands my issues, my problems, my hopes, my fears, my joy, and my pain. She missteps, as well do, but her genuine concern for my well-being and specific urge to make me happy means more than anyone could ever understand.

I was on my way out of a particularly terrible relationship when I met Liz, and neither of us had any desire to be more than friends. Initially, that is, but after speaking just once, we knew we couldn’t ignore what we knew to be true: though we are literally thousands of miles away, we were born for each other. We lived our lives and were created in the paths we were so that one day, we could be a part of each other’s lives to improve the well being of who we are.

Collectively, we are a contained war, a destiny of destruction, but overshooting every bit of plight and setback one couple could imagine, we have risen. We have understanding. We have joy. We have love.

Elizabeth is the greatest human being I have ever known, and if I live to be 1,000 years old and I spent the rest of my life with her, it will be far too short.
