I wish I could jump up and down and scream happy birthday but the excitement in my body is currently non-existent. While I am grateful for my short 34 years (I think thats how old I am) – June 20, I am currently battling possibly the worst cold I have had all year. …maybe it’s even a flu at this point…I don’t even want anything for my birthday all I want is sleep, decongested nostrils and pain relief – my whole body hurts like I have been hit by a truck.
Likewise it is my official second year being married. Well to say the least I haven’t tried to kill my husband in two years, neither has he tried to kill me. Which is very good for starters as we are both very independent minded people who have amazingly seemed to keep it together and work on continously loving each other. I really don’t think there is any specific key to having a good marriage but learning to accept each others short comings and celebrating our splendid sides. No such thing as a perfect marriage or spouse, but my complaints about him are almost non-existent as we both encourage each other to soar in whatever we choose.
Laughter has been the biggest component of marriage for me. We are both quirky individuals who enjoy each others company and play pranks on each other. We love to laugh and whatever it takes to get us there we remember to do that. We also remind ourselves that we married each other primarily for companionship and not society or to raise kids for that matter- raising kids would be an added benefit for us – however not our sole reason.
The past year has been one of significant growth for me as a person. My patience has grown, my ability to be silent on many matters has also improved – simply because not everything is worth voicing and when you don’t speak no one can mis-interprete what you haven’t said.
This site is officially three years old and I was hoping to do a mega giveaway, but alas that isn’t quite within my reach at the moment. When it is, I am certain it will be worthwhile.
I will be taking about two weeks off from writing as I feel the need to rest some, build content and attend to one or two other things…likely be back in July when I feel my content is ready….don’t miss me too much 😇 if you do, you can send me an email which I am terrible at responding to anyway… know that I am not dead – just taking some much needed reflective time off.
As always I thank you for reading and sharing your thoughts. May the rest of June deliver to us all beautiful expectations beyond our wildest imaginations.
