4 Habits That Keep Your Marriage Loving, Fresh, & Alive!
I am a self proclaimed Marital expert.
Why? Because I’ve been married twice
before and once happily forever after.
Caveat, we, don’t believe perfection exists. Seek excellence not perfection.
The Bishop and I have been blissfully married for over 36 years, first living together for 4 years. That’s a TOTAL of 40 Years! Do I think everyone needs to live together before marriage? No, that too is a choice, but it worked for us.
Number 1 Love Yourself
If you don’t love yourself, you will not allow others to love you.
If you don’t love yourself and others say they love you, you’ll say, “Sure, if you really knew me, you wouldn’t.”
If you don’t love yourself, you’re asking others to do something that you won’t do.
Who are you to ask others to do something that you won’t?” Loving yourself is a CHOICE.
It’s Easier to Act Your Way Into a New Way of Thinking Than to Think Your Way Into a New Way of Acting.
Number 2 LISTEN
When you listen to others, you are
giving the highest compliment.
(Many consider listening to be a light flirt)
Watch the video on how to be the best listener.
Number 3 FLIRT WITH THE ONE YOU GOT!
Flirting is an act of loving
or falling in love. When you
stop flirting, you have
essentially stopped loving.
Number 4 The Honeymoon is NEVER over.
It’s amazing that the norm of human beliefs is the honeymoon will not last. BULL! It’s a CHOICE!
After being happily together for 3 years, my wife was at lunch with her mother and sister. When she returned home she was near tears. Not her go to mode. I asked what was wrong? She answered, “I was telling them how happy and in love we are, they both said simultaneously, ‘The Honeymoon will be over soon.” You could see she was crushed.
I immediately went to the computer – made, framed, and hung this sign.
It’s been in our home 37 years.
I Love You Bish!
