My Words Of Wisdom

With the big day soon approaching...I want to pass along and share a few things I've learned in my 39 years. Hopefully, you can take something from it.....

~ In all important matters...think with your head, not your heart.

~ Be an adult in your marriage.

~ The mirror will never show all that you are.

~ It is okay to be lonely.

~ Forgiving is good for your soul.

~ Know yourself before marriage.

~ Don't have children unless you can show them love unconditionally.

~ Never judge others by first impressions.

~ Cry when you need to but laugh just as much.

~ It is possible to love someone, but not like them.

~ Pain is a great character builder.

~ Give your children what they need, not what they want.

~ It's okay to say "NO" to others.

~ Unless you can feel empathy for others, you are emotionally impotent.

~ Ask for what you want in life. People aren't mind reader.

~ Pity those, who have harmed you.

~ There is no such thing as putting your past behind you. Embrace it, face it, learn from it, but don't replay it in your future.

~ It is never to late to say "I love you." or "I'm sorry."

~ Growth and change in any marriage is normal. The trick is, to do it together.

~ If "being right" means more to you than anything else. Stay single.

~ Each and every woman possesses her own natural beauty. It is up to each woman to recognize and own their individual beauty.

~ Thin may be in but meat can be sweet.

~ Between two consenting adults no form of sex is wrong.

~ Resentments only hurts the ones that carry them.

~ A bigger and better person will demonstrate compassion rather than inflict hurt.

~ Be careful for what you wish for...you just may get it.

~ You are only as smart as your last mistake.

~ It is possible to have everything and be miserable or have nothing and be happy.

~ Children learn and hear more from what is not said, than what is said.

~ Maturity doesn't come with age.

~ Always listen more than you speak.

~ Never compromise yourself for anyone.

~ We can't choose our parents but we can choose the type of person that we develop into.

~ Love is both the greatest and the worst emotion.

~ Friends are people who stick around in-spite of who we are.

~ The secret to a happy marriage is great communication, complete honesty, support of each other, open sexuality, and the ability, willingness,and commitment to work out any and all problems. Yes, marriage is work. There is no such thing as a storybook marriage. However, two people can be happy and have a good life together with ALL the above tools.
