Today’s Your Lucky Day
“Forget mistakes. Forget failures. Forget everything except what you’re going to do now,
and do it. Today is your lucky day.”
It is so easy to remember all the times we’ve failed in our romantic relationships. It’s even easier to remember all the times our partner has failed.
Believe it or not, one of the reasons we easily remember these past things is because of the effect it has on the present: It gives us an excuse to remain stagnant right now.
“I’ve disappointed her so many times; how could I dare ask her to trust me again?”
“I know I’ve treated him like crap; he won’t wanna open up to me again.”
These are convenient excuses to keep ourselves stuck. Today is your lucky day, though:
- Today, you’ve got the chance to reveal more to your partner than you’re comfortable with. Go ahead, tell her what you’re scared of, or hopeful for, or fantasizing about.
- Today, you’ve got the chance to pursue him the way you wish he’d pursue you. Kiss him hard, and even grope him, and let him know you still think of yourself as a woman first, wife second, and mother third.
Today, you’ve got the chance to move past your past failures and take an honest action, one that’s reflective of the future you crave.
Peace begins with pause,
