Question... How Do You Keep The Music Playing?

I am sitting here trying to find something significant to write about. I started writing about husband then I erased it. Then I started writing about my pops then I erased it. I almost started writing about stress but the idea is to reduce it NOT start it up again. **sigh**

So here I am without a topic. Without any idea what I'd truly like to say... however, as I go along, I believe the words reveal itself.

I have been blessed with so many talents. I really have. And I don't say it to brag. I say it to acknowledge that I know they are there as a blessing from God. What amazes me sometimes is just how much I'm able to accomplish and yet still feel so inadequate. I feel like I fall short as a wife because husband isn't that grateful for ALL the many things I do for him. If he is, I don't know how he shows it.

I wish I could go into detail about all of it without making the two of us look like buttheads.... but I can't. So the details will remain with me.

Love, as in life, is a series of cycles. Ups. Downs. I find at this moment that I would really love to hear my husband acknowledge my many sacrifices for him and HIS. I can't stand when he's short with me. It's always about him and rarely ever about MY DREAMS. He says they're too risky. I choose to live an extraordinary life but continue to allow husband to talk me out of it. **sigh**

For everybody in love, what is your secret for STAYING in love?

Men are such simple creatures: feed the ego and the sexual appetite. Women can be simple once you understand them: make your woman feel like a queen by words and actions of appreciation. Have you told him what you need to feel appreciated?

How do you stay in love? That's a tough question. It takes both parties to put forth the effort. Keep talking. Keep showing affection. "Force" him to do the same until it becomes second nature to him.

Keep being who you are (that's who we fall in love with) and keep doing stuff (that's how we keep from getting bored) and never lose interest.

Works for me.

Mister Bachelor author of
The Bachelor Blog says: Love is an effortless thing. It keeps going because its natural for it to continue. I have been in love with the same woman for years.
