I’ve gotta say, I feel like I did pretty well with this one! But I think a lot of the credit should go to my parents: they raised me to not interrupt people when they’re talking. Granted, it’s harder sometimes with the people closest to you, but when I really focus on being polite to my husband, it is very rewarding in so many ways. Just having the reminder about why I should respect him is always welcome.
You know, I feel like this is a no-brainer, but when you respect and treat people well, they tend to treat you that way as well. Just a little nugget of wisdom for you to take from this! Haha. 😜😜😜
Today is Day 4- Tell him, “I’m so glad I married you.” If I’m being honest (which I always seem to be when writing to you guys), this one won’t be hard to do for me. I’ve never had much of an issue expressing my affection for others, but maybe I can stretch myself and try to say it during a time I wouldn’t ohterwise. Maybe if I’m annoyed or stressed, or something… Also, for those of you doing the challenge alongside me, maybe this one is a harder one for you. Who knows? This challenge will provide different experiences for each individual.
As always, thanks for reading!
