The truth is the older I get the more I realize how much I have to learn. Much of what is learned is through the example of others. I find that I can learn much from the poor example of others as the good examples.
It is love that gives us strength and courage to push forward through our obstacles. Love is our foundation, our fuel. But, you must give love even when the other party is acting unlovable.
Being faithful starts in your heart and with your conversations. No one else should know more about you, your hopes, dreams, desires than the one that you are with.
We get the person we picked. If they are not perfect, well neither are we. Pray for them. Pray for yourself, for patience for understanding and compassion when tempted to be critical.
Plan something different for your relationship. Find a show to watch together, take a class together, play some old school music and dance together in your own home, set your clock to take your morning coffee and go sit outside and watch the sunrise together. You don't have to be on vacation to enjoy those blessings. We need to work on not being monotonous and boring but, to add life into our relationships. And it doesn't take money. Just a willing heart to court one another again.
