Communicating love to my spouse starts when I try to speak his language. ‘To have and to hold’ is very real when you’re married to someone who communicates love through touch! Cuddles are a vital part of our marriage… Not that I’m complaining!
Guest Adam Cook: Building discipline in your life requires hard work. I’m glad that I have been able to persevere by completing my exercises even though I have felt more like going to bed without doing them!
I did some research for a goal I have for the summer.
[I hate to sound like an ignorant teenager, but YOLO. I only get one life to leave here and I don’t want it to pass me by because I’m lazy. We’ve got to be intentional and disciplined in getting out there and enjoying life. Here’s to living life an afraid. Here’s to living that colorful life I began to forge last year!]
Today my friends stood by me and believed that who I am is enough, even though I didn’t.
[I helped throw a baby shower once, it was awesome! Some friends and I threw a ‘baby bash’ instead of the traditional ladies only awkward fest. Hannah, my bff, and her husband had a great time with their friends and some family: it was a perfect blend of party, cookout, and baby shower that I could never have imagined being possible.]
Basically I’m learning to rehearse the good things, the funny things, the victorious things… I’m thinking on those thing when I don’t feel them.
[I’m getting a pet piñata.]
Gettin’ that active reading on, ya’ll. Another day another book…
A chapter a day gets a book read! I know it doesn’t rhyme, but I’ve been reading a chapter a sitting of this new book and I’m almost done. When we discipline ourselves to do something we don’t want to start, we finish it a lot faster.
Oh, regular life stuff! I’m learning to embrace the things I “have to do” as things I “get to do”. I’m a powerful person and powerful people think that way!
The joy of warm weather: getting to walk home from work.
Took 15 minutes to empty this drawer, decide what to keep, fold things to keep, put things to keep in drawer, and make my give away or throw away piles. One drawer down and five to go!
