Y’all know the saying “new year, new me” but how about “new year, better me”? This series is all about goals. We’re going to tap into a few goals that could propel you to a better you.
Put in the Effort
It is said that a definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results. This holds true in your marriage and surrounding relationships as well. The new year brings forth new outlooks and fresh opportunity to correct everything that you saw did not work last year. This year we want to challenge you to try a different approach, put in the effort, and out serve each other.
If your MO is silent treatment after an argument which you have seen does no good try talking it through. Do you physically leave after a fight and come back to it being worse? Try explaining you are going to another room to calm down so that you will be able to listen to understand.
Have you just stopped putting in the effort? Getting comfortable, frustration, stress, are just a few factors that can cause a stop in efforts. Be strategic in your marriage and your planning. Whether it is date night or as simple as a meal prep show your spouse you are trying.
One of your main goals in marriage should be to out serve each other. You’d be surprised how it can completely change the trajectory of your marriage. If you are striving to meet your spouses needs and your spouse is doing the same thing it will create an unmatched culture in your home.
So in conclusion family, try something different, put in the effort, and make it a goal out serve one another.
