Sometimes It’s Really Simple.

 

Yesterday I ran into a friend who had just celebrated her 20th wedding anniversary.  She was bubbly and excited about how happy they now were.  “The first 15 years were really rough but now we get along great!”  I knew that they had difficulty during the first years of her marriage so I asked, “What changed?”

 

She grinned and said, “I just quit looking for all the things I didn’t like about him.”

 

Focus

 

 

Isn’t it sometimes tempting to inventory all the things ‘wrong’ about the person we love?  It helps to remember that they are probably doing the same about us.  We get what we focus upon, and what we focus upon, grows.  Why not ‘grow’ what you love about someone?   Choosing to do that is truly Love Applied.
