My story – I have been engaged twice and married once – to the same guy.
I was going to write about the importance of magnesium today.
Don’t get me wrong, yes, I think magnesium is incredibly important, and, yes, most of us are deficient, but no, todays topic is NOT magnesium.
Today it’s my story, as an invitation to share yours.
Today is my 3rd wedding anniversary.
Congratulations to Jes (hubby) and I!
As you read in the title, we have been engaged twice and married once (Im pretty intent on keeping it this way!).
I met Jes in a time in my life where partying and instant gratification was pretty important to me. It was to him as well, so we gratified each other for a couple of years.
Until we didn’t.
Sticking with the common theme of girls growing up faster than boys…Young Katie kinda decided that the partying was starting to feel a bit boring. Surely there was more? (Oh sooooo much more young Katie, you have no idea!).
Of course, young Jes wasn’t there yet.
So we made each other miserable for about another year and then I broke up with him.
It was a really shitty time.
I didn’t actually realise how an emotional hurt could actually feel physical until then.
I learnt so much about myself in those 2 years.
It was some of the best and worst times of my life.
We were apart for about 2 years before we got back together.
Was I scared to go back there?
Was I scared that it would ‘work out’ when I fell pregnant 2 months into this ‘new’ relationship?
Hell yes. Petrified.
Has it worked out?
Yes. I never actually thought I could feel as happy as I do at this stage of my life.
This is (part of) my story. There is more of course. And more to unfold. As there is with you.
I have had an upbringing where I was taught not to tell my story.
‘What happened at home, stayed at home’.
I’m ditching this and telling my story. Bit by bit. It’s not always easy to be vunerable.
What is your story?
What needs to be healed?
What needs to be celebrated?
What needs to be acknowledged?
Where have you taken risk? Has it paid off?
Where can you stop and look at where you have come from?
How far you have come?
Where you are going?
What you want? (ooooh, this will challenge many of you).
I would love to hear your story, help you heal your story (if that’s what you need), laugh with you at the funny parts of your story, hold your hand through the hard parts of the story, help you create a new story for the future.
I can give you the right type of magnesium No worries.
But dig deep as well. Because this is the real healing.
Now I am going to celebrate this part of my story.
