Quick, no title, just words!

Last night I went to the gym for the first time in like 3 weeks. My body is so grateful! Well, I've become really good friends with one of my instructors over the past year. Her & I went to dinner last week & she confided in me that her marriage was failing & that she had emotionally checked out. Gee, sound familiar?

I am a good friend, so gave her a consultation at no charge. And when she was finished I looked at her & gave my standard recommendation to those suffering in an unhappy marriage, "If you aren't in love with your spouse then the marriage will never be emotionally satisfying for you." Seriously, you either stay married in misery because of x,y,z excuse or you tear down the relationship & start rebuilding your life. We control our own happiness & you can't expect someone else to do it for you.

Naturally, I come across as a know-it-all on this subject & not every circumstance is the same, but I've lived through this. And so therefore, I'm a self-proclaimed genius on the topic. Snort.

My very wise & very well paid therapist once said something to me worth sharing to the masses. If you don't unstick yourself from your molasses mess you'll never make it to your candy castle. Well, she didn't say it exactly like that & I've been known to make many Candyland references in my blogs.

On another note if I ever get my white kitten I will name her Queen Frostine & call her Frosty for short. Thank you & have a nice day.
