Touchy subjects

Touchy subjects

When you are married, is there any topic that is off limits? In my opinion, if you marry your true best friend, you should be able to talk about anything no matter how uncomfortable it may be. 

So, if your partner is not performing well at all in the bedroom, how do you handle this situation? Bringing up something like this can be very touchy and possibly hurtful. No one wants to hear that they are bad in bed. However, I know for me, pleasing your mate is very important. What you won’t do, another person will and they will do it so well, your mate isn’t coming back. Another woman won’t dare get the opportunity to please my man in a way that I won’t or can’t. I truly believe sex can be taught, but you have to be open to new things. 

We are constantly changing. What you liked at 20 won’t be the same as what you like at 30 or 40 or 50. You have to be willing to adapt and keep the spice in the marriage, especially in the bedroom. The worst thing is for your mate to be unsatisfied in the marriage in any way. That’s when they go looking outside of the home..

Excuse or Reality?

I talk a lot about fitness and weight loss because it is one of my greatest desires and also one of my greatest struggles. 

I know all about what to eat and not eat, getting enough sleep, etc. but when it comes to applying it, that’s where I hit a wall. It’s not that I love early badly, for the most part I eat well enough to maintain. Which, for a lot of people, would be a plus. But for me, I still want to lose more weight so it’s almost discouraging. 

Then time seems to get away from me most days. So let’s say that I did eat healthy throughout the day and then I exercised after work.. by the time I shower, cook dinner and eat sometimes 8pm or later. So there goes eating early. Add to that, either watching tv or reading a book to wind down – I’m good to be in bed by 10pm. Hopefully sleep by 11pm, on a good night. And then 6:30am rolls right back around. I need help breaking this cycle!

Shift 

If you don’t like the direction that your life is going in, change it. Today. Now is the time for revival, and in this time God is shifting some things in my life. He has been opening my eyes to my life. Too often I talk about things that I want or need to do and too often I say, “tomorrow.” Most things are put off until the next day and I have to put an end to that today. 

There’s more to my life than the rhythm that I have been in – repetitive/dry. I have to take control and change some things. Do more of what makes me happy. Try new things. Travel more, even if I have to start small. Get out of being to lazy to live life. We only get one. Ride this MF until the wheels fall off
