We Dare You!
About a week ago, I set myself up to take a love challenge. I was going to be completely loving, forgiving, and attentive to hubby without any reservations. I would speak his love language and give him all the physical touch he wanted. I would smile at him when I wanted to frown. I would uplift when I wanted to tear him down. The challenge was going to be for a full month, but after thinking about it, I knocked it down to two weeks. After thinking some more, the two weeks went to seven days, then I thought I'd just take the challenge day by day. The mere thought of the challenge exhausted me. Whew! That's a lot of work and it was definitely a set up - for failure. I know myself.
Needless to say, I've been challenging myself on a daily basis to immerse myself in loving hubby, putting his needs first, and loving him without reservations. It's actually been fun and getting easier everyday. It APPEARS that hubby has joined me in the challenge although he hasn't verbally said it. Love is contagious and habit forming.
I'll keep you posted and will definitely let you know when I slip up. It'll be kinda funny when my SELF gets in the way. I'm full of attitude and will be the first to admit it.
How about you? Are you up for the challenge? We dare you!
