Sometimes you just have to escape! This past weekend we took off to enjoy some time together and to remember why and how we fell in love. It's crazy how everyday life can take over and all of a sudden your significant other isn't so significant and becomes lower on the list of priorities. It isn't right by any sense of the word, but it happens. And it takes sitting back and refocusing what is the most important in your life. For me it's my hubby. We have not had a perfect marriage. We actually have been through a lot of struggles. But one thing is for sure, HE is worth fighting all my demons for! I am so far from perfect, and many times the imperfections that affect our marriage are from me, I admit that now. (that took lots of counseling) I realized through the years HE deserves the BEST me. Well he can't change me, I have to do that. So this last year I have spent time refocusing on what type of person I want to be. Have you ever sat back and had thoughts of what you would be doing, IF. Or how you would be acting, IF, you dared. But you have a wall of protection around you to not allow yourself to be vulnerable? Like you see yourself as a really out going fun personality that is laid back and enjoys life, and LAUGHS! But your wall keeps you from being that person? Or maybe your that person around a certain group, but then when you step through the door of your home, the wall goes up? It is time to take that wall down and enjoy all of life! Life is too short to not enjoy every moment, or at least try to!
This past weekend I was reminded of the power of LOVE! It can heal so many things! But first you have to make it a priority. You have to make the T-I-M-E happen. No one is going to schedule it for you and life is for sure always going to get in the way. Someday the kids are going to be raised, the job is going to be retired from and the stories are going to be retold for the 1 millionth time. Your going to all of a sudden find yourself alone, just you and your significant other. Have you developed a relationship in the NOW that will last through the quiet times that will eventually come your way? I'm working on it that is for sure! So I am continuing the adventure of developing the BEST me, and it is an adventure! I am grateful for my husbands never ending patience with me! I am so blessed.
None of us are perfect, if you believe you are, then your worse off then the rest. None of us change easily, if you do then its not for real. None of us can change on a dime and have it stick, it takes work, and patience, and time and more time and more work. Don't ever give up on what you want to enjoy in your life! Make a choice right now to just work on one thing you wished you could make better about you! Just one thing! I promise you, your life will be blessed, and the love of your life, will love you even more for trying.
