Any control freaks out there? 🙋🏼♀️ Well technically I’m in the process of becoming a recovering control freak 😜 as the older I’m getting, the more I recognize how much of my time is wasted on trying to control things I simply cannot. Like my husband...you guys, we’ve been married a long time and I can tell you that controlling him or trying to change him DOES NOT WORK! But what does work, and has been extremely effective, is NOT responding to his negative or hurtful behavior. There have been several times where I used to snap back or say something mean, or even walk away and ignore him. But what did that do? Only cause more friction in our marriage and then I was just as guilty as he was. 🤦🏼♀️ I encourage you to work on YOUR attitude, YOUR words, YOUR tone, and YOUR response. People who are emotionally healthy and self-aware rarely respond in rage. How you respond to life (and to your spouse) reveals a lot about who you are and how healthy, or unhealthy you are. If you’re impulsive, angry often, overly sensitive or just emotionally numb, those responses are not healthy and cannot sustain a marriage. If you want to make a better marriage, make a better you. #marriage365#ichooselove

You need people to help you during difficult times.
I’ve had countless setbacks in my life but there was always someone there to help me. Someone that believed in me and reminded me that I will get through it and that I’m stronger than I think I am.
I know who I am today and what I’ve achieved is thanks to friends and family that have helped me during my most challenging moments.
You only get one ticket on this ride of life so you might as well find that one person you’d like to take that ride with.
My person is @geekselixir.
She gives me confidence in everything I do. She’s my biggest supporter. She gives me tough love when I need it. She has helped me during moments when I felt self doubt about my career shift. But most importantly, she makes me a better man.
“None of us are immune to life’s tragic moments. It takes a team of good people to get you to your destination in life. You cannot paddle the boat alone. Make as many friends as possible. Find someone to share your life with. And never forget that your success depends on others.”
It’s amazing when friends remember my wedding anniversary and go out of their way to create e-cards like this. Thanks to p.Hen, our former Yuppies Ministry pastor, I didn’t forget my wedding anniversary this time ☺️ and, of course, the mister also woke me up with a greeting 💕 lastly, Big ‘n Lil Sis kept dropping hints throughout the week 🙃 Looks like everyone’s trying to make sure I get to celebrate my 16th (civil) wedding anniversary the whole day this time 😅
Marriage is hard, and the rough times always seem to come in waves. Our present wave is the loss of our car three days before going on a mini outreach which Kyle is leading. 😓 At times like these stress is high, communication is lacking, and emotions are running wild; it’s easy to lose sight of what really matters. I know I’m so quick to guard my own feelings by pointing an accusing finger, while on the inside I’m really trying to hide the insecurity of believing it’s actually all my fault. I forget that we should be working together, not fighting, and that we’ve been on the same team all along. I forget that this is my favorite person and my best friend in the world, not the enemy. In the middle of these waves it’s so important to somehow come to your senses and freeze; to recenter and regroup. To come broken and inadequate to the feet of the all powerful, all loving God who created the oceans, and surrender to the waves. Our fight isn’t against flesh and blood, a.k.a other people, but against powers and principalities, a.k.a lies and misdirection from the enemy. Sometimes you can’t change the waves like we can’t change that our car was stolen; but we can change our mindset, by choosing to trust in a God who will take care of us, by choosing to love each other, and by choosing to see the joy in every situation. #realtalk #preach #Godisgood #Godprovides #marriage #husband #growingtogether #homelessmouseinmexico #outterboxthoughts

“Commitment makes life better.”
This day was not only spent with excitement.
There was laughter, tears, sadness, happiness, excitement, stress, anxious, patience, greetings, cheers, sooo many.
I felt it all... because I knew my life world change forever.
And I’m proud to say it did.
As I’m living through marriage, it’s making me realize how imperfect of a man I am, and stretching me to become greater than I once was.
Helping me make responsible choices. Have greater gratitude to the people I love. Supporting HER to be the best she can be. Be the man she needs when it’s needed. Be there through goods and sickness.
Its not only me anymore.
I’ve committed to someone to make life better. And to me, that’s what commitment is.
❗️To make life better.❗️
Yes, being committed won’t always come with sunshine. There will be storms and bumps. And in these times, we ALWAYS must remind ourselves that commitment makes life better.
Jumping from one thing to another won’t bring you any good final results. Only small excitements, but no fufillment. 🙁
In life, we must nail our hearts to commit to the things we want, and things we are meant to do in life.
As you commit, you’ll start watching yourself grow into a magnificent identity.
•The People You Love
Whatever it is, you must commit for it to become magnificent.
Through the small, big, ugly, pretty, cold, warm, sick, and good, STAY COMMITTED.
DOMINATE the world today. 👊

COUPLES WISDOM NUGGET
In marriage you and your spouse are one entity. Whatever happens to one, automatically affects the other. Doing marriage God's way (right way) requires that you see and treat your spouse like you see and treat your own body. (See Ephesians 5: 28-33, Mark 12:31)
Trying to plot against your spouse in revenge only means plotting against yourself because you're now one. If you have an issue with your spouse or he/she has wronged you, speak to the HolySpirit to guide you on what to do. Find a good time, area and manner of approach to communicate your feelings about what may have transpired, kiss, make up and keeping moving together.
Never bury toxic emotions, pain or hurt as a result of wrong done for a later day, it will hunt you down on "that later day". However there are trivial issues that can be overlooked and forgotten. But and I say but if you know it's not trivial to you, then discuss about it and trash it out. Do not give room for the devil to sow seeds of discord that may break the marriage because he works so hard and tries every single day (not to get back at you or your spouse but to spite God because marriage is His design and we are also His most cherished and priceless creation).
Always rember you and your spouse are a team fighting against the issues and not opponents fighting against each other.
Yes it may not be as easy as said but one thing I know for sure is that it is doable through Jesus Christ.

There's a role you play for yourself that would help sustain your relationship.
The worst thing that can happen to you is to date someone with low self esteem or someone with poor self image. .
Well, you can as well help brush the person up on the condition that he or she is teachable and willing to be a better person.
There are times in your relationship when you don't need your partner to live and do your own personal stuffs and still do it well.
Some people are so cling to their partner in dating that they literally need him or her to tell them to go take dump before they would. That is captivity you are keeping that innocent person and it will shortlive your relationship. ♥️ There is still a place you need your own self to believe in your own self.
There's a place you need yourself to do your stuff.
There's a place you don't need to panic because he or she missed your calls. There's a place you need yourself to be positive about your relationship.
There's a place you need yourself to encourage you when your partner is not there. ❤️ As much as you love him or her very much, your own life is in your hands and if there's anything important to do with your life, with or without your partner, friend do it.
