When Bae Doesn’t Text (Right) Back

I used to get so upset when my hubby didn’t text me during the day, or if he took hours before responding!  I mean come on.  It’s me, wifey! Then we had a conversation, and he had to remind me of something we discussed during our pre-marital counselling. He reminded me that the only reason he isn’t able to be as attentive to his phone at work, is because he’s working. He’s working for our now, for our future… for me. And to top it all off he began to tell me of how the past few weeks have been very busy and profitable for him (for us). Well, you already know that shut me right up. And I had to apologize for losing perspective. I know my man loves me❤! I was just being spoiled, and had the nerve to get mad at him,  as if he doesn’t do everything in his power to make my life amazing! Forgive me, Father!  I’m not perfect, but I’m now more aware of this during the work day. I’ve even started sending him prayers, or fabulous selfies…lol.

 Ladies take a moment and consider your ways. If you know your husband loves you and his steps are ordered by the Lord,  rethink that angry text with the side-eye. Especially if he is at work, or on assignment. Instead, send a text/voicemail of love and encouragement. Pray over him, and send a word of life. You never know what he’s facing at that very moment, and your words can change his whole course of action!  

Remember,  you and your hubby are one.

When he wins, you both win❤!

#Happilymarried: 300 Words of Advice from the Newlywed

#happilymarried

Today my hubby and I celebrate 1 year of marriage! Yassss, shout out to us and our love! We did it, only a lifetime to go❤! Over the past year, I’ve posted countless pictures of the two of us to FB and IG, using the #happilymarried tag. I mean, I’m happy and I want to tell the world. But what does it REALLY mean to be #happilymarried?  

The What

In my opinion,  “happily married” is all a matter of choice and perspective. Which means, it will be/look/feel different for each couple. However, If you constantly compare your marriage to that of others, I’m certain that you will find it hard to enjoy what you share with your spouse.  Comparing yourself to others will rob you of your peace, your joy and your happiness! Oh, and be very careful of what you allow the media to feed you!  Listen, at some point you just have to cut all ties to those idealistic triplets; “Shoulda”, “Coulda” and  “Woulda”! They are not your girlfriends, they are life suckers! Believe me, I know!

The How

My hubby and I are learning to focus on the present, and live in the moment! As you build your future together, enjoy the process!  Take the time to listen as you get to know one another (#realeffort). You may not have the biggest house, or the coin to travel the globe, but you have each other! Focus on that! Focus on the love! Focus on the great possibilities of what will be,  and don’t despise those humble beginnings! You need each other. You’ve committed and made a vow to one another, so don’t give up. Fight for, not with, each other! Remember, a house divided against itself will surely fall!

You two are one!

Commit, Cherish, Flourish❤!

When You Know You’re Wrong

The other night, I had an extremely frustrating day at work.  Like, for real!  Unfortunately, I allowed my frustration to get the best of me and I spoke to a colleague in a manner that was less than becoming. No, I didn’t yell, scream or curse. However, as soon  as I walked away from the conversation, I knew that I handled it all wrong. I felt a huge knot of guilt in my throat… Ugh! So what did I do about it? I did what any self-respecting person would do… I tried to find justification for my actions. I dug so deep y’all, and came up with nothing! Nothing justified how I handled my frustration, and I knew I had to make it right.

So I swallowed my pride, and went back to apologized for my behavior. At first, my colleague wanted no parts of my apology, and tried to chalk it up to “it is what it is”. But I knew that I couldn’t leave the situation unresolved.  So I asked them to hear me out (which they did), and went on to explain why I needed to apologize. This was such a liberating moment for me. I actually passed this test!

Sometimes in life, we are just flat-out wrong. We know it, and even try to ignore it. But let me encourage you today… Don’t let your pride keep you from the freedom (and blessings) that comes with making things right!  Let go of your pride, and acknowledge your behavior without looking for justification. Apologize, get it right, and move forward. You already know it’s the right thing to do!

Cheers to being fierce and free❤
