“We do not learn from experience. We learn from reflecting on experience.” – John Dewey

If you fail to reflect, you’re DOOMED to blindly drift into the relationship DEFAULT, full of conflicts, unintended consequences and a stagnant relationship.

If you skip reflection, you’re living with the DISADVANTAGE of a huge blind spot.

If you want it to get better, consider how it went!

WILLING is WINNING. 💪✨
If you’re willing, even one of you, then you will BOTH win. If both of you are willing, then you can win BIG. If you’re willing to… ☑️ LEAN into the LESSONS ☑️ Let your MESS be your MESSAGE ☑️ And your “PROBLEMS” be your PATH ☑️ Then… ❤ Fights DON’T have to be a fiasco. ❤ You CAN transform the BREAKDOWNS into BREAKTHROUGHS ❤ And turn an argument into intimacy ❤ The VERY thing that was pulling you APART can be the VERY thing that pulls you TOGETHER.
What are YOUR top tips for tapping into teamwork in your relationship?
We're human and have our moments, but for the most part with my husband, any negativity is cleaned up in a minute rather than sending us into our own worlds for hours or days. Our relationship is not immune to stress, yet we handle it as ALLIES not adversaries. But it wasn't always that way! The first few years of marriage were definitely the hardest.Learning to work together as a team, ESPECIALLY during stressful times, is a CRITICAL skill to fold into any healthy, happy and hot Couple Culture.
Frustrations can run high these days.   Front load the intimacy by building a HABIT around acknowledgment and appreciation.  Even if they do it all the time and it's no big deal, THANK THEM.  And it's even better if you ASK them what THEY want to be acknowledged for. You might be surprised at what feels good to hear for them.  And when they ask - give it to them good!  INVEST in intimacy by practicing appreciation today.  #RelationshipFunandGames #PracticeAppreciation Feelings, Stop Fighting, Specific Goals, Helpful Hints, Guidance, What You Can Do, Appreciation
