The Year in Review

Uploaded: Dec 30, 2013
What one or two things will I do better than I did in 2103 that will make my marriage stronger and healthier and happier?

Let's make a list of ideas here. I'll start:

? I will purposely remember falling in love, and nurture those feelings ? now!
? I will put his needs equally with my own, and choose actions from that vantage point.
? I will stop assuming my husband isn't thinking about a topic that's important to me, even if he doesn't raise that topic. (I can bring it up. I have been happily surprised to find out just how much thought he had already given.)
? I will share my own fears and uncertainties more. I don't have to take care of it myself (despite learning that lesson quite well growing up); we can do it together.

Since our goal is to be a healthy, happy couple, I will . . .

(Now it's your turn, readers.)

We need your support now more than ever. Can we count on you?

I will reserve time and energy to spend with my partner in the evening, even when my workday has been long and/or stressful.
