This morning I was thinking about friends and family (including myself) who have been through divorce. The circumstances behind coming to that conclusion. The grass is always greener epidemic.
We get to this point in our lives where we think “there has to be something better.” The truth is that we can create that something better right where we are with what we already have and with whom we already have it.
Paul and I have spoke many times about if we knew then what we know now. We could have done things differently in our previous marriage. We would have been able to see that some of the problems were simply men/women problems. The very same problems that my husband and I currently have.
Now, don’t get me wrong I truly believe that we are all where we were meant to be now. Some of us needed to go through the failures in order to open our eyes and do it differently this time. Know when things are worth digging at and when it is worth keeping your mouth shut. Know when to hold them and know when to fold them.
Every single morning I wake up and I THANK God for the man next to me. While I am doing this, I am choosing to love him again today. To treat him with love, talk to him with love and show him my love. A daily, constant choice.
We could have done things differently before and we chose not to. Sometimes we are so selfish that we honestly believe all the wrong doing belongs to the other person. Oh, how foolish. Don’t get me wrong…if only one of you is choosing love, then obviously that won’t work either.
Life, Love and the Pursuit of Happiness are all what you make it! Happy Saturday friends…choose love!
