More Daily Marriage Boost Tips
“Show me a man who cannot bother to do little things and I’ll show you a man who cannot be trusted to do big things.” ~ Lawrence D. Bell.
This insightful thought applies to everything in life, including marriage.
Big problems break up marriages, sure, but little problems can whittle away, silently and slowly, otherwise “good” marriages, too. Neglecting those small everyday issues leads to building resentment or, worse, apathy. How do you avoid growing apart? By staying connected through the small but mighty things you can do for each other on a daily basis.
My Twitter feed provide a Daily Marriage Boost that will challenge you to do one simple thing to strengthen your marital relationship. There’s no catch and no obligation. If you aren’t familiar with Twitter, it is a free social networking site. Sign up for your personal account (Don’t worry. No spam or identity theft issues here.) Then, sign up for my Twitter feed. My Twitter name is @BellaMarriage.
You’ll receive one Tweet from me per day that will begin with a “Daily Marriage Boost.” I considered calling it a “Challenge” or “Task of the day” but honestly, who wants more tasks on their to-do list? I thought about calling it the “Daily Honey Do List” but again, who wants to be told what to do?
A Daily Marriage Boost is just that: a boost for your marriage. Something that will bring a smile to your mate’s face. A little joy or laughter. A little love expressed. It can make a bad marriage better and a good one great. You’d be surprised at the power of a small but sincere act of love. One more tip: Don’t demand or expect your mate to reciprocate. It’s a gift from you, not a trade of goods and services!
