Days 2-7: #Challenge Issued
At request I’ve posted the first 7 days of challenges. Next Friday, I’ll post the next 7. Please keep in mind that while this comes from a Christian perspective it will still apply to any faith or non-faith. To wit:
Day one = please don’t say or do anything mean to your sig-O.
Day two = Repeato day one and add a random act of kindness toward your sig-O.
Day three = Repeato Day 1, 2, and buy something nice for your sig-O.
Day four = Repeato day 1, 2, and then call them and see if there is anything you can do for them today.
Day five = Repeato Day 1,2,4, and ask your Sig-O to name 3 things that irritate them about you, do so without being confrontational AND defensive, then reflect on those things and try to adjust.
Day six = Repeato day 1,2,4, and react to tough situations in your relationship with kindness and understanding. Reflect on the situation and understand where you may be over-reacting.
Day seven = Repeato Day 1,2,4,and 6 AND a written assignment: get two sheets of paper, on the first sheet write down only positive things you enjoy ABOUT your spouse on the other negative things. Now, put them away for a later day during this cycle. Compliment them each day on something from the first sheet.
For more back ground on each dare follow the link and read the excerpt from the book.
