Relationships 101: How to get what you want 07/21/2011
There's a secret formula I've been using in my life for a good while now & I want to share it with you.
Yesterday when The Mister came home from work he was in a not-so-hot mood. My initial reaction was to be irritated by his crabbiness & give him an attitude about it.
But as it was, I found myself having a rather delightful day & I didn't want to stray from my rather-chipper mood.
So instead, when I was confronted with his irritation I said, what's wrong Babe? He said that he just didn't have that great of a day. & then (this is the gold is) I asked, is there anything I can do to make it better?
He thought about it for a minute and made some suggestions. I ended up making him some lunch, pouring him a beer and just like that - the bad-mood-curse was lifted.
Bottom Line: If you want something in a relationship or life, you have to be willing to give it first.
So the next time you find yourself wanting more of something in your relationships or life, look to see how much it you are giving to others. If the answer is not much at all - start taking action! You'll be surprised how fast the turn around rate is.
