What Is Right 2

This is part 2 in a series of positive posts. Greater than 99% of my posts are neutral to negative. Therapist said it was time to have a look at positive things, the stuff I’m “kicking in the ass” right now or the stuff that “makes your wife want to be married to you.” This stuff is hard for me to write btw, I don’t like to sound conceited.

What’s Going Right
I’m playing it cool
My son introduced me to a new show last weekend, Archer. It immediately vaulted to number one on my Netflix watch list. Brother and I watched the entire first season the other day when one of the episodes kicked my ass. Seriously, a cartoon spoke to me.

If you’ve never seen the show, I’ll give you a very quick rundown. James Bond meets Irreverent/Impossible Comedy = Archer. This episode has a boyfriend and girlfriend and girlfriend separated due to her job. The boyfriend is excessively clingy. His coworkers keep admonishing him for his constant texting, calling and pestering of his girlfriend. The freaking characters told him to stop smothering the girlfriend. I felt totally convicted by this stupid show.

I received the message. From that point, I have initiated contact with My Bride, maybe, 3 times in 5 days. It was incredibly difficult the first 2 days. I established communication today to tell her I was applying for a job and to ask her to pray for me.

In other words, I’m leaving her the hell alone.

I’m Pursuing A Hobby
My hobby is very girly. Brother said the next thing for me to do is to start shopping for items with wings 😟 My point is, I’m keeping myself occupied with an activity that doesn’t require too much thinking.

Still Trying To Be The Best Me
My Bride shocked me with the following text last night: I’m proud of you and the changes you have made and are making. I’ve been told that I have made changes. Since I spend so much time with myself, it’s hard to recognize those changes. I know I’ve been trying to change things, My Bride says it’s happening, so I guess that means it’s happening.

Positivity has power. If nothing else, it keeps me from kicking my own arse.

  1. If she telling you she notices, it must be pretty good..as a wife myself, we make sure things are consistent for awhile before patting you on the back 😉

    My daughter is 23 and lives with her wonderful boyfriend. Thy guy is amazing. He loves her, treats her like no one else in the world matters, is smart, funny, doesn’t cheat, and over-the-top good looking. So, what could slowly be driving my daughter out the door? He is smothering her. He is slowly suffocating her.. I feel bad for this kid because she has had countless conversations with him telling him exactly how she feels and he has yet to ease up.
    If I could give one piece of advice to men out there, young and old…if she tells you it’s too much, no matter what it is, it’s too much. Learn to change it or she will leave. I am sooooo glad that Archer got through to you.

      It’s crazy how a stupid cartoon made me see how awful it is to be smothered like that. You have your daughter show him that show and he might figure it out.
