This blog is made for a very special person in my life, his name his Duncan Munro Wilson.
Ever since you came into my life, it has been nothing but great surprises. When we first met, I didn’t think that we’d ever end up where we are today, but I am thankful that you held on to me, as did I to you, up until this point. I think we share a bond with each other that doesn’t compare to many other bonds I’ve had in my life. With you I feel that there is nothing to be afraid of, you won’t judge me for what I have to say, feel, or look like. When you first met me, you had no idea what my background was or what my story was. You probably wouldn’t have guessed that I’d been through and still dealt with eating disorder symptoms. I was self-recovering when you appeared in my life, and when you did, some of my thoughts actually ended up going away. I finally had a new focus, and it was way better than what Ed was trying to tell me. You were telling me things that he wouldn’t. You told me that I was pretty, and nice, and you wanted to come along for a car ride with me even though you hardley even knew who I was. You accepted me from the start, and that’s something I’ll never forget. You take me as I am, and I do the same for you. You’re incredibly talented, you have put a lot of time into you’re intellectualism, it amazes me how much you know. You know how to handle situations, how to re-act and respond. You take care of me, when I’m sick or just having a crappy day. You take a situation, and you turn it around in seconds. You calm things down, and make things seem less catastrophic. You keep me balanced. Whenever I’m freaking out over something, getting anxious, you relax me and change my perspective in order to calm down and handle things differently. I can’t imagine a life without you. I know I’ve told you this before, but you are truly a blessing in disguise. You came into my life at the perfect time, did you know that? The year prior to meeting you, I was going through a rough time battling anorexia. It was the biggest hardship I had ever faced, it completely took over my body, my mind, and unfortunately even my soul, then you came along and showed me that there is more to life. That there is time for netflix and just hanging out, that there is time for snacks and going on dinner dates, that there is time for reading and sitting and socializing. You started reintroducing the things that I used to love back into my life, while replacing the time I spent constantly exercising and burning myself down. I didn;t really think there a was a point to life anymore besides running every second of the day, it’s sad but it became a reality to me. You helped shift that. I love you, and you’re entire family. Each and everyone one of you puts a smile on my face, you’re all so welcoming and fun to be around and I always look forward to seeing you guys no matter what day or time. I’m always happy to see you all. Your dad is just such a nice guy, and has a really good sense of humour. You’re mom is the same, very nice, sarcastic and hilarious and just so sweet. You’re step mom, has such an amazing soul to her, she would do anything for anyone and is really fun and creative as well. Your sister Viv, is like my little angel. She is so funny, so cheery, and has a wicked imagination. Your brother Cam, is a genuine fella too, he’s very smart and is willing to do things for people. Nick also has a very caring personality, I seriously don’t know what I’d do without your family. If I ever were to lose you, which I pray to God I don’t, I would be losing out on an extraordinary family too. We share so many great times together, and I can’t wait to create more memorable, fun, and spontaneous times/adventures with you<3
