A Quick Note or A Harsh Lesson


Monday, February 11, 2013

After taking care of sick kids and fighting a sinus cold the past two weeks it has all come to a screeching halt for me. My motivation is there, my strength and fortitude are not.

Best thing that happened today: Picked up the SP Kindle recipe book for vegans/vegetarians for only $2.99...Awesome deal. Looking forward to giving it a going through and trying some of the recipes.

Worst thing of the day: You'd think it would be kissing the porcelain throne all evening, but no. It was another argument with my husband. He has been so negative and I, being sick and feeling cruddy, had a hard time holding back this time. However, I didn't attack him...I simply asked him to do me a favor...

"Think back over the past two months and tell me one positive comment that you have made to me." I never got an answer.

Conclusion?

1-Either he didn't try or;

2- He did try and realized the answer to that question was ZERO, ZILCH, NADA. Not one positive comment.

3- The part that may bother me most is that if he came to the conclusion of #2, why couldn't he at least apologize? Rather, he doesn't seem affected by this at all.

Lesson?

If you haven't been doing your best to make your partner feel special, secure, appreciated and loved...tell them you realize it...tell them you are sorry and make a change. It would have made a huge difference in my day. I'm sure it would make all the difference to someone else who was feeling neglected.

Sending (((HUGS))) out to you...

Husbands are dumb... I hear ya. Whenever I'm having a moment with mine, I just remember...marriage is hard work. It is not always kind and loving...sometimes it plainly sucks. It's at those times I try to work on the 'me' part, and take care of myself even more. Remember to hug your inner self, and the people around you won't help but notice the radiance that you will begin to exude.

When in doubt...come here, to always find a friend, a co-conspirator, a mentor, a hug.

Hope today treats you well....and if it doesn't...there's always chocolate.
