We haven’t always seen eye to eye. But this guy has always had my back.
I’ve had some haters come out of the woodwork since becoming a coach. People annoyed by my posts, people waiting to see me fail! Haters and creepers in my DMs. Good Lord! The creepers!!! You name it, I’ve been dealing with it behind the scenes.
Most days it doesn’t bother me one bit. You have to have a thick skin to be able to do what I do and be successful at it. But I am human and some days it is overwhelming.
But this guy right here reminds me without hesitation that what I’m doing is important. He believes in me even when I doubt myself. And he’s right! You hear that babe…YOU’RE RIGHT! 😉
Helping others while working on myself IS important. I absolutely love what I do and I believe in what I do too! It’s my passion. I’m changing lives including my own. There’s only one thing I love more than what I do and that’s proving people wrong. So to the haters and the creepers I thank you. Just keep watching! You might see me stumble but I will NEVER fail. And to my husband I owe the biggest thank you! Your love, support and belief in me means the world to me.
“A perfect marriage is two imperfect people who simply refuse to give up on each other.”
There has never been a quote more fitting of our relationship. Justin I am so flippin’ excited to celebrate this anniversary with you above all of them so far. Because I am so flippin’ proud of how far we’ve come.
We’ve done a lot of work on ourselves and on our marriage. Especially this past year. And I am so incredibly thankful for the difficulties we faced even early on in our marriage because it got us to where we are at today. Absolutely STRONGER THAN EVER and STRONGER TOGETHER!
Justin George Stommel, thank you for never giving up on me. Thank you for believing in me even when I didn’t believe in myself. Thank you for standing by me even when it was really hard. I love you more today than I did when I said “I do” and more than I did even yesterday. I appreciate your willingness to grow together when we could have far more easily grown apart. I refuse to give up on us from here to eternity. I love you to the moon! You are forever stuck with me. Happy 5th Anniversary babe!

“A perfect marriage is two imperfect people who simply refuse to give up on each other.” Throwback Thursday to one of the happiest days of my life. Can I share a secret with you? The photo below is only a snapshot of our lives. Literally! A moment in time when our lives were “perfect”. But by no means has every single day since that day been as “perfect”. Successful marriages take work folks!
Often times we scroll thru social media wishing for the “perfect” lives of others instead of focusing on how we can make our own lives “perfect”. Can I tell you another secret? The word perfect is subjective and varies from person to person. What’s perceived as perfect to one is not as perfect to another.
Some days come easier than others. Some days you just don’t like the person you are married to. Other days you are reminded of what an incredible spouse you have. My husband told me from day one that I was stuck with him. We both come from divorced families and discussed very early on that divorce was not an option for either of us.
Communication is key. Transparency is vital. Letting go of unrealistic expectations is crucial. Love yourself, love your spouse. Treat each other with kindness, patience and respect. Make your own lives your own kind of perfect.
