Is it ever Okay to have a pity party??

Is it ever okay to have a pity party??

“NO!”

All it does is make things worse~ giving that kind of energy to the negative doesn’t solve anything! It only makes the problems bigger and more complicated and more damaging etc….

RESIST the urge to fall into the pity party trap!!!! If you feel one coming on- STOP it and do a 360 degree turn around by listing all the positives you can focus on instead. Get your mojo moving in the right direction.  If you can master this one thing you will move forward towards an excellent life!

“Blessed is the WOMAN who perseveres under trial, because when she has stood the test, she will receive the crown…” ~James 1:12

Don’t think I am preaching at you- I have to remind myself of these same concepts too~

I also LOVE our question of the week this week:
With Valentines day just around the corner…this week’s question is :

What’s your LOVE story??

To help you along these memory jogging questions may help you tell your STORY~
Where did you meet your DH?
Was it Love at first site?
How did he propose to you?

Where did you meet your DH?
My Love Story began back in rural MN at my Highschool….I met Travis one day when he was recruiting teens to lift at the weight room over summer vacation. He tried to “sell” me on the idea and I was NOT BUYING, lol! Then a friend of mine talked me into it and soon after I was getting up EARLY to hit the weight room, just so I could spend time with the DREAM BOAT instructor (Travis). We hit it off and despite a huge age difference. I had just turned 17 and he was 22, we’ve been together ever since (it’ll be 17 years this summer, WOW!!).

Was it Love at first sight?
I wouldn’t say that it was exactly love at very first sight, but CLOSE…we had instant chemistry! We were made for each other!! When we fist met that I had my guard up quite high. I wasn’t even thinking that he was “boyfriend” material when we first met because I was so much younger than him. Plus he was SUPER HOT!! I didn’t feel like I was even in his league!

How did he propose to you?
Travis proposed to me in a wonderful way! It was a few days after my 18th Birthday. He blind folded me and drove me about 10 mins away…When he took the blindfold off we were on my Grandfather’s farm up on a hill under a tree looking at a beautiful sunset. Then he gave me a gift~ a teddy bear with a box…a ring box!! He asked me to marry him and I said YES instantly!! It was PERFECT!

Remembering my LOVE story is SOOO fun and makes my LOVE feel more alive than ever!!

What is YOUR love story?

LOVE,
Michelle
