I'd Rather Risk--Day 1

I’d say it’s been a LONG time since I have written on this blog.  Over four months!  Yikes! 

I have been on such a wonderful journey and I wanted to share with you about my next step in this journey.  I’m calling it….18 Days of Risking…

What does that mean?  That means from today until Aug. 8, I will be doing one thing everyday that pushes me…gets my blood going….scares me to death….something I have been putting off…

I bet your asking yourself, “Why would you do that?  Do something on PURPOSE  that scares you?”  I’ve learned that only by facing my fears and pushing myself do I grow.

So, here is DAY 1:

I told my husband that I am fighting for our marriage.  It has been no secret that we have been having difficulties.  There have been mistakes and pain on both sides.  And honestly, there was a time in the last few months when I wasn’t sure if I wanted it anymore.  In the last four months, I have been on a journey, to discover who I truly am and what I really want for my life.  It lead me to discover that I don't want the type of relationship I had with John.  I want a new, different, healthy relationship. Let’s face it.  Marriage is hard.  Really hard.  But it took two people to create the marriage that I am in right now….and it’s going to take two people to create a different, better relationship. 

And, today, I  choose to love my husband.  I choose to fight for my marriage.  That means I show up…every single day by using my voice, standing in my power and holding my husband accountable…and asking him to do the same for me.

And I am in 100%.

And the other part of today’s risk….sharing this with you all.

I will be updating this blog daily, so tuned!!!!!

With love,
