It is so interesting how we are more than willing to better ourselves through workout programs, extra curricular activities, hobbies and even service to others, which are all great things, but forget to work on our marriage. The most important relationship we will ever have. How is it not first on our list?
I know people that have spent thousands of dollars to get fit and to participate in health competitions of all sorts, but their marriages crumbled. I know people who are so giving, and serve others in an amazing capacity, but at home, their relationship is suffering. I know people that make sure they have their friend time and participate in hobbies and love it, all the while their marriage is slowly fading into the background.
I am not saying that these other activities aren't important. They are. We all need to take care of ourselves and serve. It does in the long run HELP a marriage, IF our marriage is first priority.
If you are not as happy as you want to be in your relationship then start today searching for ways to better it. If you have settled for where you are at in your marriage and settling is below the line of having happiness and joy in your union; then stop settling.
You deserve better. Your spouse deserves better. Your children deserve better. The world deserves better.
If you don't know where to start then seek advice, help or a mentor. But DO NOT turn away and think oh another day I will get to that. That day may never come.
Your marriage should come first. Your needs deserve to be met. You are meant to have joy in your marriage. Look inward and start affecting outwardly. Many happy years are waiting for you.
"I don't believe you have to be better than everybody else. I believe you have to be better than you ever thought you could be."
