Dane and I’s video call yesterday was filled with tears (at least on my part) and hard decision making that we needed to do. No, he didn’t do anything wrong, lol. We were discussing (again) whether he’d return to KSA or not.
This 2-year contract was the most challenging years we had in our marriage and just to think of doing it again for another year or two, naiiyak na ako! But yes, we had to talk about it and come up with a decision (again).
Anyway, our convo ended with sleepy eyes, good nights and sweet I love yous. Marriage is tough, LDR marriage is tougher. However, even if a family is life, planning and saving for the future is lifer. 😀 At least for us, now, as a couple who are trying to save more and start investing for our child/children’s future.
But that’s not what I want to talk about now. Out of nowhere, as I try to learn about short term investments, I decided to check Google alerts and searched for the word marriage. I saw myself reading a post from M2Woman about this One Minute Marriage Cleanse. I think this idea is a simple but helpful way to help couples strengthen their marriage and relationship.
So what is this all about? According to M2Woman, One Minute Marriage Cleanse is taking one minute each day to think reasons why you’re thankful for your partner. The post suggests you come out with two: physical and personality attributes. Once you’ve done that, let your partner know. It can be done any time of the day but is suggested you do it before one of you leaves for work. It’s a good motivation and source of good vibes, isn’t it?
We all love compliments and nothing beats a lovely compliment from a spouse. Whenever Dane compliments me, I blush and I feel really happy! When we keep it a habit to compliment our partners, it can surely improve our relationship with them.
