How Full is Your Love Tank?
April 19, 2016
Keeping your love tank full is imperative to having a fruitful relationship with your significant other. If gas is necessary to keep your car performing at it’s best, then having your tank full of love is just as important to having your marriage or relationship performing and going the distance. So how exactly does one keep their love tank full?
Acts of kindness is a great way to ensure that your cup is not only full, but over full. We are geared in the sense that when we give, we actually fill a sense of satisfaction. Too often, many people are not in a position to give and therefore find themselves in a downward spiral of emptiness. I highly recommend to make it a habit to be a giver more often than not. My wife and I always donate when we have the chance and tithe to our Church faithfully.
Speaking of Church, getting your spirit and faith cup filled is highly important to reaching your full potential and having your love tank filled. Mind, body, and spirit are the key areas to well roundness and fully living a healthy prosperous life. Get plugged in to a great church and surround yourself with people that have a vision and goals.
Working out is the last area of importance that I want to speak on. When you work out on a consistent basis, you build a confidence factor that allows for you to carry yourself in a certain manner that attracts the right people in your life. Being healthy is key to living a great life and having healthy relationships. If you can’t love yourself, then how can you expect others to love you?
I hope you are able to take these words of wisdom and apply them to your life today and start prospering in areas that may be lagging. Here is a short video to give you some motivation.
Men That Cook
April 4, 2016
Have you heard it said that the way to a woman’s heart is through her stomach? Fellas I am going to shed some light on a subject that will not only save you some money, but also help you score some brownie points with the Mrs. Learning a few great recipes for a date night that will surely get you rounding third base in no time!
SETTING THE MOOD
When preparing the scene for dinner, lights have to be low and the food has to be light. The last thing you want to do is prepare something heavy that makes your significant other tired or bloated and not in the mood! Fish, shrimp, or chicken is a great main course that is relatively healthy and light. Always grab a bottle of wine to compliment the dish and to also loosen up the conversation. Don’t forget to compliment her on how beautiful she looks as well. I remember for New Years I made my now wife Lamb Shanks and asparagus for dinner with a bottle of Moet Champagne. She still talks about that night til this day! I had put rose petals on the table and lit a few candles. I had everything set up prior to her arrival. The hardest part is timing the dinner and or having it prepped before they get home. I recommend telling them to be home at a certain time for dinner reservations…then BAM. It also helps to have a desert picked and in the fridge. I usually like chocolate covered strawberries. They are easy to make and easy to eat.
TURN YOUR PHONE OFF
Always remember to let your boys know that you will be busy and that you will get with them the next day. Nothing is worse than people blowing your phone up while you are trying to impress your girl. I think you should always do so no matter what the situation is. I find it disrespectful when someone is on their cell phone during dinner or when they should be giving their attention to the person across from them.
Next time you want to have a date night, Try staying in and putting those chef skills to use. If you absolutely can not cook, order take out and put it on some fancy plates and serve it to your date. After all, it’s the thought that counts right?
What’s Your Love Language?
March 31, 2016
Have you ever wondered why you sometimes meet those couples that are extremely happy and seem to have everything in life with no bad days? Are they just putting on a front? Are they really happy ALL of the time? Or maybe they have are speaking each other’s love language? Either way, it is almost impossible that everyone has a good day every single day!
WHAT CAN WE DO TO MAXIMIZE THE GOOD DAYS?
I truly believe that switching the mind from a what’s in it for me to a “What can I do for you” kind of attitude will ensure that you are in a servant type relationship that can boost your love life tremendously. Being a giver and not a taker keeps us from being selfish and more selfless. I recently got the carpets cleaned by a carpet cleaning professional so that my wife doesn’t have to stress about the house too much. We recently had our first born and the roles are definitely strained. Working together makes the process a lot smoother.
Communication is imperative to ensuring that both of you are on the same page and that you are understanding the needs of each other. This is when understanding each other’s love language is important. My wife and I have the collections of Gary Chapman’s “The Five Love Languages” that assist you through each of the languages and better understand your partner’s buttons that make him/her tick (in a good way).
Military life can be difficult for many couples. Faced with deployments, long hours, and constantly moving, times can get stressful very easily. As an Active Duty military officer, I recommend that you get plugged in with a great church and a solid circle of friends. Doing so will allow for a solid support system and people who you ultimately will consider family. Here is a short video about the love languages that you can watch until you grab a copy of Gary Chapman’s book.
