Thank Your Ex

Yup. You heard me.

"What? Thank my ex? You've got to be out of your mind" you may think.

Seriously, though. You have lots to be thankful for.

If you are like me, then you probaly have wished a time or two that your ex, whether it be a boyfriend or husband, would get hit by a bus and never seen or heard of again. That's totally normal to harbor those angry feelings.

However, by doing so, you only create tension within your own heart, mind, and soul. This can really affect your life negatively today in many ways. Also, by letting that anger consume you, they STILL have their control over you. And you wouldn't want that, now would you? 

Where are you at in life today? Are you happy? Are you successful? Well, you can thank you ex for that because chances are, you were not that way with them.

When I come to think about my awful past marriage & divorce, ex-friendships, and family who did me wrong, I am actually quite thankful. Because if it weren't for my ex-husband, I wouldn't have:
  • my loving husband who respects me, pays attention to me, and a fireproof marriage (just celebrated our third anniversary yesterday!
  • my beautiful son and another baby on the way
  • the ability to stay home, work from home, and watch my son grow up (my ex husband once laughed at that idea but my current husband embraced it!)
  • the ability to live out my dreams of becoming a professional blogger and personal trainer to hundreds of women WORLDWIDE.
  • an over $100,000 annual income. 
  • a successful and large platform to speak my mind.
  • a happy, fulfilling, successful, and complete life

Remember all those times you spent praying and asking God to "work things out" between you and your ex? 

Aren't you glad He didn't? I have learned that sometimes, God's greatest gifts are unanswered prayers. He knows what's best for us and removes toxic people from our lives for a reason.

So, seriously, go on and thank your ex. 
If it weren't for them, you wouldnt have the life that you live now.
