Today is Fabulous Friday and I just wanna say….
My life is not perfect.
I fight with with my man. Not often, but it does happen.
I fight with my kids. In fact my 21 yr old hates me …with a passion.
My body is a mess. Arthritis, neck and back degeneration.Migraines. you name it.
I have suffered heartache like no other.
My business suffered a huge loss last year. Sometimes I really just wanna throw in the towel. Yet I keep trying new things and trying to make it work, some way, some how.
I am planning a wedding and getting married on a shoestring budget and trying to please two families one here in Des Moines, one there in Wisconsin.
I have a saboteur stealing signs off my car, outta my yard, and making nasty comments on my business blog site to where I have to approve my comments. #HatersGonnaHate
The list could go on as I am sure your list of negatives in your life could be like this as well if not worse….
Why do I post happy pictures of myself on Social Media? Why do I post uplifting messages? Why do I post messages thanking others often? Why do I send out kisses and hugs, Xxx’s and OOoo’s? Why? Why do I do these positive things?
Because my life from the time I was born or at least as far as I can remember has been filled with negativity and bad things have happened to me. I used to feel like I was a victim. Now I realize I am an Overcomer.That song by Mandisa “Overcomer“ completely defines me. I went from Fragile to Fabulous. It is my Mantra. I even have an E-Course about it launching next year (but that’s another story for another time)
Somewhere along the way I made a choice. Just as YOU could also make that choice.
#BeNegative or #BePositive?
#BeMiserable or #BeFabulous?
Life is filled with so much hate, so much negativity so much anguish, so much heartache. We live it with every day. We see it on the news, we see it in our newsfeed, we see it on Social Media, we hear it on the radio and even in the work gossip. We can’t escape it, it seems.
We wake up every morning and have a choice. A choice to be happy or sad. A choice to let the pain take us over or conquer the pain. We have a choice to go to work begrudgingly or make the most of it. We have a choice to allow the hater get the best of us or rise above it and be the better person. We have a choice to let the stress of wedding planning be a chore or to enjoy the fun of it. We have a choice to worry about the child who hates us or love the child who loves us and calls us to see if we are ok, even if it only is every now and then. We have a choice to appreciate the friends who are there for us when we need them. We have a choice to thank the team who supports us when we need them. We have a choice to be grateful to the believers who believe in us, even when we are unsure if we believe in ourselves. We have a choice to love the man who loves us for us, the whole of us, when we feel ugly, when we feel less than pretty, when we feel less than ourselves, when we feel great, when we feel sad, when we feel mad and yes even when we are yelling at each other, we have a choice to love that man for loving us at our best and at our worst. We have that choice. We also have a choice, to let the one who broke our heart…go. We have a choice to remember that he is not the man who loves us, now. We have that choice too.
We are a result of the choices we have and will make.
The best part of the Indiana Jones Last Crusade movie I like is that part when the protector says to him “You must Choose, but Choose Wisely”
and when you know you have done right and you have made the right decision you know it in your heart and you feel affirmed. You feel that satisfaction!
You have chosen wisely!
Remember, the CHOICE, is up to you.
Happy FAbulous Friday everyone!
Until Next Time,
xoxo Trisha Trixie Muah!
