“When “I” is replaced with “WE” even Illness becomes Wellness.” —Anonymous

538: A SIMPLE THANK YOU

“Happiness isn’t getting what you want all the time. It’s about loving what you have and being grateful for it.” —Anonymous

There is tremendous power in voicing what you are thankful for in your marriage. It’s more than just saying words, it’s truly acknowledging someone with your whole heart.

536: I DO MORE THAN YOU

“The minute you start keeping score you’re destroying the relationship.” —Tony Robbins

Do you keep score in your marriage? Maybe something along the lines of “I do more than you” or “you never do this”? Like it or not, you’re keeping score. Maybe without even realizing it. 

Is this normal behavior? Yes.
