We were in Big Sky Café the other day in San Luis Obispo on our drive down the coast from Big Sur where we had been camping. The whole way down in anticipation of lunch my body could not wait to have a huge bowl of salad, veggies it cried.
As I was driving the other day it struck me, how early on in my life I knew myself. The hopes, dreams, aspirations, the core of me, is not much different than it was when I was nine or ten. Yet so many aspects have taken me decades to accept, to acknowledge, to trust. And this is still an ongoing process.
I am not a marriage expert. This list is from my own experience. Obviously there are big deep seated issues such as not fighting well; over controlling; passive aggression; or lying that the following suggestions would not fix. But I do think a little extra attention in these areas would make any marriage stronger.
