Last weekend I was in the store with my son getting him new shoes. I overheard this mother telling the store staff, don’t you have cheaper shoes. Paying over $200 for shoes seems really crazy. I guy said mama there are lots of shoes in the shoes for less, you are just looking at the top shoes. Well that is what my son wants.
The funny thing is when I was young I remember my mother telling my father, Pete needs new shoes. He asked the size and that night I had my shoes. There were no options, I just accepted them and knew that is the way it was with shoes was. I would often go to the mall with my mother, but we never looked at the shoes. Funny I knew there were options, but I also knew those options were not for me.
It is kind of the same with a marriage, there are always other options, but you know it’s best to focus on the choice you made and improve the relationship. As you focus on that option and work on it life does improve. I know there are times when those options change without your input. At that point you still have two choices Fear or Love.
I always choose Love. Even in a failed relationship you can still focus on the love. It may be different, but oh so much more enjoyable.
Much joy and love to you and yours
