Upgrading a story is a lot of fun. You can really be just about anyone you want to be. Before I met my husband I was a single mother, living in the sticks, struggling to keep my business afloat. Those facts be damned I decided to date only men who made more then $750,000 a year, just for sport. My 16 year old son and I planned it as a social experiment. I had been on a streak of dating unemployed, uninspired men and wanted to prove a point to myself about what was possible. There was no evidence in my life to prove this would work. I had to upgrade my story to being quite the hot commodity to get myself into that market. But I did, and I dated doctors, Micro Soft Millionaires, a professional athlete, and attorneys. Shockingly enough, when I re-branded myself as a successful, entrepreneur, business owner, (yeah, kind of a stretch) living in a beach cottage, (true, but it was in the sticks), who was super feisty and sexy, (that part was mostly true), those men were quite happy to be in my company - and there were plenty of them.
What’s in the story? Magic, literally, like an incantation that creates reality. So, for my three East Coast girls, I hope they read this article and realize what kind of spell they are casting with their stories and make sure they are keeping ones that make them feel very sexy, where it’s raining straight men, that are nice to their mothers and love puppies.
