~Dare One~ A lesson in patience

Today is day one of The Love Dare. It is already noon and after reading the first dare I realized that I need to read it first thing in the morning. First lesson learned.

Today's dare is to not say ANYTHING negative to your spouse for the next day. It calls us to not say anything should we be tempted to say something bad. This is something that (depending on the day) has been a struggle for us. It is just so easy to get lost in negative thoughts and dwell on them. I think we all have been there not just with our partner but with so many other people in our lives. There are some people that can get under our skin in no time at all. Too often we forget why we fell in love and we let the negativity take up more and more room.

So for the next 24 hours (and beyond) I will resolve to stay positive, to reaffirm my husband and to stay quiet when things irk me. This might sound easy on the outside but I know that this will be something I will be struggling with. I will update you all tomorrow morning on how it went.
