From Her Fridays: Two Nice Things
Getting wrapped up in wedding planning is all too easy to do. I’m loving the increasing number of “Remember the Reason” posts talking about love and bringing it all back down to Earth.
Isaiah and I have a tradition I would love to share with you. It started when we changed our lifestyles back in December, starting exercising together and eating more veggies, transforming us into healthier people [not dieting, still working on it].
Once we started that, it became easy to go from “I’d really like to change this about myself with this solution,” to “I hate this about myself!”
Isaiah started the tradition of every day saying two nice things about ourselves. One on our physical and the other on our “isms.” For a quick example, Bugs Bunny* would say: “I love my deliciously pointy wabbit ears and how I’m always outsmarting that silly Elmer Fudd.” We started turning the tables as well, and returning the two nice things about each other as well.
It helps boost our self-esteems for the day and keep us grounded in why we fell in love with one another in the first place. An especially great card to pull when you’re turning into cranky assholes 1/2 way through the day.
Try it. Do you have a daily ritual with your beau that makes you feel like a rock-star?
*Sorry for all of the Bugs Bunny references…I always hated Loony Tunes until Isaiah finally just Netflixed it and I am in love. Give it another shot if you’re not already a fan…it’s got layers.
