Unspoken Conversations are the topics that are often swept under the carpet, whispered amongst the closest of friends and bitched about by many. I want to create awareness about difficult things that people face in life; grief, mental health, money, illnesses, family troubles, relationship difficulties and putting yourself first. I want to tell the truth about things that really matter.

My Inspiration

One of life's greatest gifts is being given a heart of another to love, nurture, care for and protect.

Today's inspiration is the person who I have given my heart to; my husband.

They say opposites attract and when we first started dating it was definitely a case of the bad boy charm wooing me, a sweet and innocent girl.

Micks larikan ways were mistaken with misconceptions that he was intelligently challenged.

But I now know that his humor protected the heart that he found so hard at the time to share.

Once I looked past his facade I found a guy who has the biggest of hearts and who would do anything to protect those who he loves.

He is by far the biggest inspiration in my life and I wouldn't be the person I am today with out him by my side.

My husband gives me the courage to share my story via my blog. He has taught me to believe in my voice and to silence out those that are less encouraging. He's taught me not to care about what people think but to just be myself.

I turn to him for truthful advice and to provide a shelter when life becomes too busy.

His presence alone calms me.

He's taught me how to relax and switch off after a hectic day, the strength it takes to stand by someone you love when they are ill, how to cook, what to do if a zombie apocalypse ever came to town, how to handle a car in the gravel, that one must laugh at themselves and that money can be found in the street ie not to worry about it because you can always earn more the next week.

I hope that I can love and care for someone as well as my husband did when I was ill. I could only hope that his family look through the same admiring eyes that mine look at him for his strength and the better person that he makes me.

I'd like to think that I have as strong a work ethic as he does and that others can see that just the way others praise my husband to me.

My  husband is incredibly generous with his time and will drop everything to lend a helping hand.

He's intelligent and forward thinking.

Michael makes me laugh with his witty and often dirty sense of humor.

He loves to stir people up and to get a bite from people.

He doesn't care about the little things that others become strung up upon.

My husband is incredibly strong both mentally and physically.

Sometimes I wished that I could delve inside of his head to see how he was feeling and coping while I was sick. I know there's things he'll never be able to put into words and that he wouldn't want to share  because of the pain, but I'm so grateful that he stood by my side when others would've ran a mile.

I can only hope that my husband feels just as loved and as cared for as he makes me feel.

I'm one of the lucky ones who Michael has shown his complete self to. There's things he shares and shows me that no one else will ever see and the same goes with me.

Sometimes he shows glimpses of his incredibly soft side to others, and as we become older his more caring side is coming out more and more like just the other day he suggested sending flowers to one of my best friends.

I love that so much about him.

My husband inspires me, challenges, protects and loves me, and he does this on top of being a great friend, loving family member, hard worker, do it yourself man, renovater, my personal chef, footy and  basketball player and much more.

I hope one day that I can be half the person he is.

To my husband, thank you for seeing all of my flaws and helping me to accept them and for loving me when sometimes I struggle to love myself.

To other people out there, don't forget to tell your partner how and why they inspire you because it's sure to make them feel special.

Look after yourself and those around you,

Kirsty xxx
