I wish I was better at updating this page! I’m not! Maybe someday. I like having the blog but just can’t seem to get motivated. Have a great weekend!
This is one of the BEST relationship articles I have ever read! It is not just couples, but any and ALL relationships.
Science Says Lasting Relationships Come Down To 2 Basic Traits
“By observing these types of interactions, Gottman can predict with up to 94 percent certainty whether couples … will be broken up, together and unhappy, or together and happy several years later.
There’s a habit of mind that the masters have,” Gottman explained in an interview, “which is this: they are scanning social environment for things they can appreciate and say thank you for. They are building this culture of respect and appreciation very purposefully. Disasters are scanning the social environment for partners’ mistakes.”
I’m not sure what is going on in my life right now but I’m left feeling anxious. I’m going to blame it on the summer solstice! The summer solstice day has the longest period of daylight. This could esplain why my sleep patterns are off. Why I’m feeling anxious.
I am anxious about selling my house. Issues with the title and an old mortgage. My favorite son has some things he’s working through that have us waiting for the outcome. I have several irons in the fire in my love life. None of them are exactly what I want, but they could work if they would just work out. After an extreemly busy and frantic June I am wondering what I am going to do with a July full of no plans!
I like my life orderly and organized. I didn’t used to be this way! Age has a funny way of changing who we are. Sometimes I recognize this and think that it is no wonder that married couples don’t always stay married. It must be hard when two people are living under the same roof and growing and changing at the same time and usually in different directions. It sure makes me appreciate those that do stay married for many years.
Just to be a rebel today I painted my fingernails purple and my toenails coral. I’m not sure what that has to do with feeling anxious but it made me feel better!
