Wow! Time flew! As of two Monday’s ago (6th June 2016) we giddily reached the sixth month of the knotting of our love. YAYY!! 😁 It feels like we got married last weekend and at the same time, like we have been married for years. We thank God so very much for His daily help, mercy, love, guidance and mostly for the times He pulled us through situations we couldn’t bare handle ourselves. God is extremely good guys, continue praying for your husband/wife EVERY day! Nothing is impossible for Him to fix…don’t ever forget that! 🙂
This post is basically to shed a little insight of the months that have gone by. Our first three months was all about finding that ‘balance’, things were a bit awkward. I remember during our first few weeks of sleeping together he would accidentally hit me while turning. Yes, OUCH! I on the other hand would sleep so close to him that he would be on the very end of the bed and he would get up and try to push me off the bed or the next day I won’t hear the end of his sleepless night. We sleep much better now ha-ha.
Another thing was adjusting from using the words ‘I, me and mine’ and going to ‘us, we and ours. Luckily for us we took a budgeting class (shout out to Carlon and Melinda Cox) which helped us to sit and work out our monies together so that area wasn’t a problem for us. Of course being two independent individuals we both had goals of our own in which we wanted to accomplish but then when we ‘became one’ those goals also ‘became one’ and were written down by order of importance and each day we work towards getting them and ticking them off whether it be his first or mine.
Our fights have definitely changed from staying quiet and trying to see who would break the silence first to getting it off our chest the very moment a disagreement comes up. Now don’t worry about persons who tell you work out your problems RIGHT away…it takes a lot of understanding and willingness from BOTH of you to reach to that point. So if you’re not yet there with your significant other then don’t worry about it just make some time to talk to them and come to an agreement :).
Space! When we just got married we were stuck to each other like glue (this is expected 😁) and because of this, time flew by on us daily like wow! Morning turned to night and night turned to morning extremely quickly…we struggled with time management terribly. I think this happens to most newlyweds because I spoke to a close friend about it and he said the same thing is happening to him haha. Now we have that control of our days and time. We get much more done than we use to.
We’ve both grown so much! Personally and together. I feel so good knowing I live with my best friend. The laughter is uncontrollable and the love is so strong! I wake up every morning smiling at his precious face and thanking God for my gem. There’s a not a day that goes by where I don’t, I even question what I did to deserve such a gentleman!
Ladies pray for your man, don’t doubt him, don’t belittle him, don’t ignore him and don’t threaten him . There are ways to get across to him, this takes understanding and much patience. Push him each day to be the best version of himself, encourage him, support him and in other words, be his cheerleader 🙂 I’ll have another post with some updated relationship advice, didn’t want this one to be too long 🙁
Thanks for reading my loves. If any of you would like to share anything at all about your Newlywed experience feel free…I’d absolutely LOVE to read about it! 🙂
Until Next Time,
