Hi my lovely people!
Anyway, Ice cream finished before I could binge on a whole season of Designated Survivor. When I was done mindlessly watching TV to numb myself, I carried my spoon, empty ice cream bowl and self up, and went to sleep. What else could I do???
The following weeks were CRAZY! Plenty happened. Seeking counsel from, and pouring out my heart to my closest friends and family, tying up lots of loose ends for the business, telling our friends about the move, telling mini me, traveling home for a party, long chats with the hubby, discussions with our marriage mentors, packing, surprise goodbye events organized by my friends, such an endless list of things…But what was most important for me was negotiating terms of this move with Mr.X. Over the past decade, I have taken news of our move(s), and not carefully considered my own state of mind, needs and desires. All I have focused on is Mr.Wonderful and our kids! How noble right? Na lie..🙄🙄🙄 Nobody gets brownie points for not considering their own happiness.
This time, I decided to look out for me. Just a little at least.😊 I had a long discussion with the Mr. We went back and forth, negotiated, and then settled on some of the things I wanted. You know after this, I had to give myself a pat on the back! Bros is smart, sharp, thinks so fast on his feet! Choi! Many times, it’s so hard to keep up with him! This time, I tried hard to stay in charge of the discussion, logically talk about how I arrived at my needs and wants, and how they were highly important for my happiness and sanity in our new location.
Have I got all we agreed on just yet? Nope! But it’s all work in progress. I simply feel proud of myself for looking out for ME for the first time in a long time!💃🏻💃🏻💃🏻💃🏻
