Wednesday Words of Wisdom

Marriage, marital problems, family, life We all know that life has its ups and downs. It is what it is. Sometimes I find myself incredibly down. Way more down for one reason or another than I let on to the outside world I’m afraid. So each week, mid week, I’ve been taking a few minutes in the morning to just relax, regroup, and motivate myself. I typically find motivation through other’s words and wisdom. A simple Google search can be incredibly uplifting, as odd as that sounds. But from now on, every week (or so I hope), I’m going to be sharing a few inspirational quotes with you in case you find yourself struggling too. Life is hard work y’all, but if you look at things the right way, it’s always worth it.

“Happily ever after is not a fairy tale. It’s a choice.”  ~Fawn Weaver

“A successful marriage requires falling in love many times, always with the same person.” ~Mignon McLaughlin

“We come to love not by finding a perfect person, but by learning to see an imperfect person perfectly.” ~Sam Keen

“Enjoy the little things in life… For one day you’ll look back and realize they were the big things.” ~Kurt Vonnegut

“And in the end, the love you take is equal to the love you make.” ~John Lennon and Paul McCartney

Remember that sometimes your internal struggles are put there to remind you of what’s most important in your life. For me, it’s family, always family first. I needed this reminder, and this moment. Happy Wednesday!

  1. So what do you do when one spouse is willing to love the other person’s differences but the other spouse just continues to ooze disgust and hate? I’m at a breaking point with my relationship. I’m really not sure how much longer I can remain married to someone who refuses to find happiness in anything. 🙁

    • It’s work for sure. Marriage is very hard work. Help him find happiness. Find common ground even where there are no commonalities. That’s something I have to work on too.

  2. I love Fawn Weaver! Thanks for the words of wisdom…and yes, you do have your own words!

  4. I need that reminder quite often through the day. Unfortunately, it’s not always on my mind.

  5. I love reading inspirational quotes. The first one is so true and too many times people get into a marriage thinking it will be happy ever after without any work! I too had no idea what kind of work marriage really takes until I actually got married. lol
