Chapter 14: Healthy Marriage: Celebrates
Hurting Marriage: Denigrates
Heartfelt Marriage Podcast 058
By Ron Ross
One way to combat complacency in your marriage is to celebrate more often, after all, who doesn’t like a good party, even if it is only a 20-minute stop at the Village Inn for a cup of coffee and a slice of Apple pie (ala-mode, of course)?
Celebration is good for the soul. Life is wearisome, and praise is sporadic if at all. We need a few “at-a-boys,” a frequent “you’re awesome,” and especially a sincere, “thank you.” If you haven’t done a little cheering, a little slap on the back, or a round of applause lately for the good things you do together or the kindnesses you do for each other, it’s time to start again.
In this podcast Dr. Ross presents three ways celebrations grow your relationship!
He makes the point that not many things are better than a celebration, large or small, with the person (people), you love the most – your mate, children, family, and friends.
“The more you praise and celebrate your life, the more there is in life to celebrate.” – Oprah Winfrey
