For one of the Wedding Posts, I was asked to share my tips on Marriage.
Since I’m such a newlywed, I’m going to share with you my favorite tips that I’ve been given (each line is from one person).
I don’t want to steal the light from the wise women 🙂
Always Make Time For Each other & Give 100% Attention, Even If It’s Just For Five Minutes A Day
Always Be Willing To Compromise, Learn When To Be Silent And Learn To Listen Well
Initiate Sex, Don’t Wait For Him
Have A Good Sense Of Humor And Make One Another The Most Trusted People You Know
Surround Yourself With Women Who Will Encourage You And Not Fan The Flame, Have Fun, Don’t Settle For Routine
Remember When A Problem Arises, Put “The Problem” On The Coffee Table And Sit On The Couch. That Way, You’re On The Same Side When “Solving” The Problem.
Don’t Ever Get Bitter, Ever
Respect Your Husband, He Needs That More Than Anything
Remember, He Is Your Best Friend & Never Lose Your Fun, Spontaneous Side
Always Be Ready To Extend Grace
Always Remember Marriage Is Not Exactly 50/50, Ever
Be Kind To Each other, Pray Always, Have Faith In Your Future
And just a little note from me to you in my 3 weeks of marriage… I am constantly asking God to teach me who I am as a wife and to search and cleanse me of any stubborn areas I have within me (there are a lot!). Stubbornness truly doesn’t make anything better and it’s so much more freeing to just let it go.
And to end… remember when I had a type-Skype Date before? Well, I’m doing it again! Put it in your Calendar.
It’s a one hour lunch date VIA Skype with me.
All you need to do is sign into Skype at 12:00 PDT on Friday, September 5th and start a new chat with me (Skype: healthyhitsthespot). I have found that it’s a great way to connect with my readers on a more personal level. It’s a time where I can answer your questions around Health Coaching, The Institute for Integrative Nutrition, and just hangout and talk. If you read HHS continually, I would love if you’d just sign in and introduce yourself!
My mission behind Healthy Hits the Spot is to create relationship with my readers.
I genuinely love getting to know you more. So, mark your Calendars. This is our second Skype Sesh!
This is not a group chat – this is a one-on-one type-Skype (no video) with me.
P.S. the bits of marriage advice are from notecards guests wrote at my Bridal Shower — such a good idea if you want to include this in your Wedding Plans! So encouraging 🙂
