“Two roads diverged in a wood, and I took the one less traveled by, and that has made all the difference.—Robert Frost

Breakthrough is on the other side of your comfort zone. If you don’t get started, you’re not going to get anywhere. For us, one of the clearest examples of this is the 60 Day Sex Challenge we completed in 2008. 

In this 800th episode, we’re revisiting our first-ever podcast episode and reflecting on the impact of this milestone. 

Most importantly, we want to thank all of you, the ONE Family, for how you’ve shown up to get radical in creating your own extraordinary marriage. 

We’ve been getting behind the microphones every week since 2009. Each time, it has been an honest conversation between a husband and wife. 

Throughout recording the ONE Extraordinary Marriage Show, we’ve experienced healing. And we know many of you have had your hope restored as you create change in your own marriage. 

So, as we celebrate the milestone of 800 episodes, we want to ask you: Are you taking time to reflect on the milestone moments in your marriage? 

There are specific moments when you can make a choice. Usually, one option keeps you in your comfort zone, while the other option forces you to get radical. 

Deciding to do a 60 Day Sex Challenge was a milestone moment in our marriage. 

What are your marriage milestones? 

For you, it might look like: 

  • The starting or ending of something significant. 
  • Committing to your marriage again.
  • The addition of a child or the loss of a child or parent. 
  • Trying something new together.

Milestone moments aren’t always rainbows and unicorns. Instead, they sometimes involve tears and heartache.

But that doesn’t make them any less significant.

So when you look back at your marriage, where are the points where, just like the Robert Frost quote, you took a road less traveled that made all the difference? 

In other words, what situations or decisions changed the trajectory of your marriage? Pinpoint those moments overall. 

Next, consider how you commemorate these moments. Do you have a conversation, recognize a certain date, or look back at videos or photos?

As we reflect on the impact our first sex challenge had on our marriage (and the future ONE Family), we urge you to take time to look back over your marriage too. 

Ultimately, as you engage in this conversation, you’ll strengthen your emotional intimacy. And in doing so, you can strengthen all the other 6 Pillars of Intimacy®.
