Four Building Blocks For Our Marriages

 


Four Building Blocks For Our Marriages

These are intentionally brief. 

As you can tell, however, their importance to either a marriage or serious dating relationship are more than noteworthy: they are high ticket items in the marriage and dating worlds

And just in case you are live within some phase of an internet marketing world, please carefully note: these are important relative to any of your "internet marketing journeys" as well.  Why?  Answer: because we must we strive to lead and operate in our relationships with excellence -- just as we strive to in our various professional pursuits.  

Building Your Marriage Insight Number 1 

We must strive to continue...

Appreciating what I do well in the face of what the other does better -- and doing so without downplaying either! 

Building Your Marriage Insight Number 2 

In addition, something we must always "lean in" to...

We should work towards this: Calling it a night before calling things off. 

In other words: allowing wisdom, love and sensibility to prevail as opposed to tempers, feelings out of balance, and anything else that can run rough shod over what is most important. 

Building Your Marriage Insight Number 3 

In addition, may all of us work at being in the frame of mind which "leans in" to: 

Reinforcing habits that heal 

And... 

Breaking habits that make healing necessary. 

Now, get these two words:  "Reinforcing" and "Breaking"!  (Yep, those are some biggies!)

Building Your Marriage Insight Number 4 

Our efforts should also include: 

Misplacing grudges more often 

And... 

Finding praises more often than not. 

Bringing It Down To This Day... 

Suppose one or more of these insights grabbed your attention.  And if so, the simple -- but far from simplistic or non-imporant -- question is: 

"If so, why?"  

Would the answer to that "Why?" be something either to pursue personally or pass on to someone you know? 

And, should you happen to be a faith-based individual, would any of these insights promptt either praise or prayer?

Speaking Of Our Inner Gold



Speaking Of Our Inner Gold
Reflecting...
  • All of us realize the "inner gold" enveloped within the lives of ourselves and others.  In one way or another we term it our potential. The talents, drives, thoughts, and heartbeats within that can change lives, influence generations, care for others when caring seems almost impossible, fight for causes worth fighting for, and love when loving seems not only impossible but improbable at best.
  • It is, truly, "inner gold."  The inner beauty if you please that can be found, developed, and refined to serve everything good in our world.  
  • Of course, there is a negative side to such potential, but that is not our focus here.  We are focusing on the inner beauty that can spring from the hearts of people and that can be tapped into for the purpose of loving, serving, growing, molding, mentoring and influencing our world for the best.  
Reflecting More...
  • Question: should you recognize some level of that inner beauty in the life (or lives) of a person you know, do they know even in a small way how you feel?  Have you tapped into your own reservoir of potential to encourage, lift up, inspire, or reflect appreciation to another within your circle of influence?  
  • And another question: Have you taken any time recently to reflect upon your own "inner gold."  The characteristics, talents, abilities, thought patterns or desires that could be mined for the purpose of reflecting even more of their worth?  No, I am not speaking of false pride here: I am speaking of the honest giving thought to the honest positive characteristics, desires, values and abilities that you possess and which you could lay hold of just a bit more for your own creative, life-giving, positive influence purposes in our world.  It's okay, you know! 
  • Having said all that, what about that journal that you possess?  Does any "inner gold" lie within for that could be added to for the purpose of enhancing your own reflections later or even sharing its contents in a way that could influence others in a life-enhancing manner or for cherished values based potential?  
A Takeway...
"My single positive, affirming or encouraging take away for today as I have reflected on this subject is ____________?

An Encourager



Reflecting...
  • "Sunshine in the heart." We all need it and love it when it comes our way.     
  • Bright moments may invade our lives through a note, smile, hug, handshake, text message, movie, something we catch on television or maybe even the news at times.   
  • "And the point is?"  Answer: those encouraging, bright, "sun shiney" moments are needed, appreciated and... we can give them!  
Reflecting More...
  • Quick: if you had to bring a moment of encouragement in the the life of someone today -- even for a few moments -- who would come to mind and what would you do? 
  • Would you sit down and write a post like this to see if you can generate a few and be a positive influence in the world? Or, would you initiate that note, smile, hug, handshake, text message, etc., etc? 
  • If you were to journal about how a person has encouraged you or the importance of being an encouragement to others, what might you journal?  And, if you only have five minutes -- just five, now! -- to do so: what you you record that quick in your journal
A Takeway...

Being A Good Dad



Reflecting...
  • I love being a dad.  Love it.  I could never have imagined the honor of being married to the love of my life in the first place... let alone experiencing the privilege of being a father.  
  • Ad I think of making the many and varied attempts at being a father of quality, words such as "investing," "sharing," and "releasing" come quickly to mind. 
  • However, none touches the heart as the the word "loving." 
  • In brief, we've got to do it as dads.  We love during the on days, the off days and every day in between... and we do so if we are determined to succeed in this business of "being a good father."
Reflecting More...
  • Should you decide to do so again on this day, what beauty could you be on the look out for to enjoy, create, or share? 
  • If you were to journal -- for the sake of joy -- several thoughts about being a father, what might you say?  And, maybe more importantly, why would you say it?  Could be good stuff for your journal!   
A Takeway...

Beauty In Life


Reflecting...
  • So much of life is what we see and how we choose to see it.  
  • Of course, you could reverse that statement and place the emphasis on choosing how we are going to see whatever we do see in any given day.  
  • It's all about two words: (1) perspective; and (2) choice.  
  • In your present or past, how have you chosen to see or create beauty in your world or the world of someone else?  No doubt you have done so many, many times.  And...
  • Should you decide to do so again on this day, what beauty could you be on the look out for to enjoy, create, or share? 
  • Should you happen to journal -- in a very, very brief form -- the three most important things you have learned about seeing or creating beauty in a person's world, what would you record? 
A Takeway...

Speaking Of Gratefulness


Reflecting...
  • Stop, think and be grateful!  "Be grateful for what?" you ask.  Anything.  People, memories, moments of joy, being helped during a heartache, victory in an athletic event, or a cool breeze somewhere.  Again: anything! 
  • If you had to journal something about being grateful, what would you say? 
  • And what about sharing? If you had to give 3 tips on "the art of staying grateful over the long haul," what would you say to a group of people?  Or... your child? 
A Takeway...

Good Time Management




Reflecting...

  • Should you state your best way -- or ways -- for making the most of the moments of our lives, what would that be?  
  • Should you record that in a journal
  • Or, possibly, should you design something to share with someone based on your insights?


A Takeway...

At Times Small Is Not Just Good -- It Is Perfect!


At Times Small Is Not Just Good -- It Is Perfect!

Walking somewhere during a rough time...

You do,
Say,
Or think something that is “good,” (i.e., positive in nature) BUT...

You find yourself responding something like this on the inside:

“But, it’s so, so small!” 

That may be true, but is it the best internal response?  

--- When Small Isn’t That Small! --

My whole point in this brief, but important, note is:

When something is small -- and good -- be very careful about minimizing the importance of the thought, word or action by placing the emphasis on “small” in your response. 

Remember, our internal dialogues travel with feelings attached to them, and our feelings can:

Diminish the spirit,
Promote non-truthful thinking,
And place a “Stop” sign on forward movement. 

-- Try This Instead --

Instead, positively embrace whatever was good:

The good thought,
The good word,
Or the good action.

Affirm such things as “steps.”  Steps in the right direction. 

After all, steps are crucial.  

Positive steps,
Acknowledged as such,
Create positive differences in our lives. 

--- It’s All About Our Framework --

When that which is small is cast within a framework of that which is...

Positive,
Encouraging,
Affirming,
Or Helpful...

Things can change for the best! 

Purposes can be reinforced,
Good feelings can be strengthened,
And positive motions can be solidified.

--- Once Again ---

Beware of attaching wrong internal values to that which may be momentarily small in terms of a monumental advancement. 

Instead...

Affirm what is small -- and good --
For the all the good that can become of it!
