Significant Other Saturday #4




"No significant other is perfect and it doesn’t really matter. What matters is how we set ourselves up to think about them. If we focus on their failures, their annoyances, or ways in which we have felt hurt by them, then we will interact with them as a hurt and frustrated and disappointed partner. That makes for miserable living for ourselves and our partner and those around us. But if we focus on their strengths, their potential, and the ways in which we feel blessed by them, then we will interact with them as a forgiving, blessed, and contented partner. And there’s no greater need a partner has than to feel respected by their lover. If they feel like all they do is hurt, disappoint, and frustrate, then the same atmosphere and the same actions will be perpetuated. But if they feel that their partner can be happy and responsive regardless of their own shortcomings, they feels respected and empowered. Then a positive atmosphere is perpetuated and actions, once destructive, can improve in an environment that is rich for cultivation and growth into deepened respect and intimacy."


Significant Other Saturday is a day in which we can all get together and remember why we fell in love, why we continue to love, and why we will always love our partners. Too often we take our relationships for granted and just expect them to be there. Join Ida @ Eternity Kind of Love, and me - Rachael, as we challenge you to be attentive to your relationship and tell us all about your partner and why they are so special to you!



So far we've:

- Introduced our partners
Shared five things we love about them
- Shared one thing we need to work on

This weeks topic was:

Tell us about your favorite shared hobby.

Here's ours:

When I re-connected with the Hubby and we started dating, I knew almost instantly that my world was going to change BIGTIME. You see, Hubby is interested in obsessed with sports. Every different kind of sport you can imagine! And while at first it was annoying to me, now I actually enjoy most of the sports he watches and especially love going to live events. Here are just a few of the things we've done over our years together:
Football




Basketball


Hockey


Baseball (26 days YAY!)


Nascar



Wrestling



I think that's it! The only one missing is College Football. (we lost our camera on the way home)
