Where does time fly? I'm older and a lousy blogger. Actually this is my first blog, which I liken to a public diary. Very weird I think. But I'll give it a go. There I said it, 'I am not perfect', although I am perfect in my imperfections! That's my definition of perfect. Please write to me or I'll just get rid of this blog part. You can even tell me how to be a better blogger. One thing I know now is that I really know a lot, but it's just a drop of wisdom. You have your own. Are you perfect?
Here's one thing I believe in for successful relationships: Acceptance - first of yourself, then your loving partner. It is so easy to be accepting of the clerk in the grocery store. When my Dad retired, I watched him on our daily trips to town be ever so charming to every store clerk. Fun. Easy. Accepting. Then I laughed as he needed to supervise my mother making cookies, which she'd been doing for 50 plus years. She was smart. She just laughed. I must admit I have a bit of my Dad's bossiness. But then I spent years as a boss, director, they called me. Now, I find the closer I am to someone, the more I still want to change them. Just don't! Just laugh! But underneath I still think I know best! Thank God for humor. How do you handle that? How will you handle conflicts when you are married? How can you be more accepting of your partner's ways and perceptions, without turning yourself inside out until your eyes cross or demanding your perfect love accept your wisdom as truth?
