What Does Everyone Want
I am learning more and more as I get older that life is a compromise. When we learn to listen to each other it makes for a much happier life. I am learning that everything in life is not about only what I want or need. I was the one for many years that paid the bills, planned the meals, etc. One day my husband decided he would do the bills and at first I panicked and said NO!!..I had to be the one in control of everything!!. I finally did give them to him to do and it took a while to get used to but all of a sudden it was like WOW!! One less job for me...He wanted to do it...good for him!!. I want everyone to come home to a happy home. I want to know their opinions on dinner ideas. Im learning to ask what do you feel like watching tonight, or what do you feel like doing this weekend? I will admit, sometimes Im not thrilled with the answers but you give in. Every now and then when you hear someone else's opinion it can open the door to bright and new ideas that can really be a lot of fun. Im finding now that Im a little less "bossy" and care more for what everyone wants they actually come home and compliment my work much more. If anyone wants to cook dinner or do a load of laundry, go for it!!..I dont have to be in control of every thing that goes on anymore. This week I encourage you to do something a friend wants to do even if your not thrilled about it. It will be a gift to them and believe me you will get so much back in your life when you do what someone else wants once in a while.
