8 Years ago today I met my husband.
Marriage. It's an incredible thing. And the reason I am putting this little ode on the blog is that without these Lifestyle coaching principles that I teach, I don't know if I would still have one.
We went through some really turbulent years, and the tool of "calling out the chatter" with RELATIONSHIPS works too (more to come)! I have used this countless times to shift the way I was feeling and to see my situation in another light.
Talking with your spouse using your logic brain? It's like having super powers.
I was let down and loopy after a long day. I just treated Kris like a guy I would never see again and said whatever I wanted and was completely myself. I asked him if he wanted to be my best friend. He didn't accept.
However he took my hand and danced with me when no one else was dancing to the most ridiculous music.
Since then we have moved 7 times, had 1 fantastic child, and lived 4 years of intense personal change.
He has been there for my first plane ride, first international trip, first cup of coffee & first time meeting my dad after 25 years.
We have always had fun. I have never been bored. And after eight years I can say for sure, that you Kris, you are my favorite person in the whole world. Thank you for eventually taking me up on the best friend offer.
And shout out to our dear friends for being a witness to our crazy life and adventurous marriage.
