Today is my second wedding anniversary. I talked at length about my first year of being married a year or so ago.
If there’s anything I learned being married is that I have to choose her everyday. I choose to focus on the gifts she brings into my life. Her smile, her sense of humor, her patience, her sensuality, her silliness, her comfort, her empathy, her friendship, and, of course, her unconditional love. I may not actively say to myself “I choose you” like I’m playing Pokemon or something, but I do choose her with my actions every day. Some days are truly better than others, but every day I choose her. I just do for all the reasons above and more. Only her.
Marriage is work, but it’s the absolute best and I’m incredibly lucky to have her in my life.
Take a moment to remind your significant other (husband, wife, family member, dog, etc) how much they mean to you and why you chose them.
