When you are committed in a relationship of any kind, you begin to let your guard down. You know what I mean.
From a marriage perspective: Your spouse doesn't just get the good of you. Your spouse gets the bad and especially the ugly.
But we have to be real in order to be present. And with our presence, that's when things begin to shift.
So think back to the good ole days where your sweetheart could do no wrong in your eyes. Fast forward to today, and every day your sweetheart does something wrong.
We tend to look for what we want, not what we have. And what we have is never enough.
Hashtag disagreements, arguments, fights.
It's the everyday struggle in marriage.
But instead of giving yourself permission to see what you don't have, why not look at what you do have and see the good side?The K.I.S.S. ~ Create new memories in new seasons!
Let's go shopping for a moment, the old-fashion way; in person. You get out of your car and gather your bag and phone locking the car door behind you. As you round the backend of your car, a reflection catches your eyes from the ground. It's a penny!
Find a penny, pick it up, all day long, you'll have good luck.
But have you ever really looked at that penny. The side exposed to the tires, wind, sun, and rain is dirty and not in great shape.
Turn the penny over, and there are a few indentations from being run over, but there is still a shine to the penny.
That's just like marriage. There are times where you are covered in the mud and muck of life. Yet there still is a shiny spot; where you can smile at each other and see the love in your eyes.
It's during these penny moments where marriages are put to the test. You can flip the penny and get to the other side.
Create new memories in new seasons.
Your marriage does not have to be perfect. In fact, it's better your marriage is not because that's where the little miracles are born. You get to reap the rewards of your hard work as an individual supporting and loving your spouse, and as a couple!
If your marriage is rocky today, don't give up. If you find yourself fighting and disagreeing more than cuddling, don't give up. If you are struggling with finances and how to pay the bills, don't give up.
Every time something breaks is an opportunity to become better and stronger. Your imperfect marriage is a door to become better and stronger together.
Your everyday break-ups (i.e., fights, disagreements, etc.) will not destroy your marriage unless if you let it.
Create new memories in new seasons. Find the penny, moments pick it up, and all day long, you'll have good luck."Be present. Be incredible. Be YOU!!!"

Camp Hell: Anneewakee
The Anneewakee Treatment Center for Emotionally Disturbed Youth operated in Douglasville, Georgia for over 25 years. Purportedly, it was a place that parents could send their troubled kids for help. But in reality, it was a breeding ground for abuse. This is the story of Anneewakee, as never told before.
This is what the news should sound like. The biggest stories of our time, told by the best journalists in the world. Hosted by Michael Barbaro. Twenty minutes a day, five days a week, ready by 6 a.m.
