Why do you do what you are doing in your daily life? For me--I have needs that I and willing to acknowledge, pursue, and meet, as hard as that can be sometimes.
Over the years, I have found that I love social events and activities. I have been the instigator of many different things. I have been known to plan sporting events with groups of friends, coordinate mini-reunions, and also coordinate a family newsletter and blog. I must say, all in all, I just love connection with people. It's soooo healthy!
I also love progression.
A few months ago I attended a class at BYU with my brother. In the class, I observed his intelligent business teacher as he taught. He shared something in the middle of class that I feel like was true wisdom. He told the entire class that one of the best things he did for his family was choose to see a marriage counselor. He didn't elaborate much but just shared that his marriage wasn't perfect. What a surprise, right?! He encouraged all of us to be humble enough to take responsibility for our marriage struggles, something that we all have. I have come to feel that this choice is totally valuable, for everyone, no matter their circumstances. I believe in progress, and, in my opinion, the greatest characteristics needed to progress are humility and responsibility.
If you enjoy connection and/or want to progress in your marriage, come join us in our Pitch Parade events. Should be a good time and could very possibly help.
