I know you already have an amazing life. I know you’re “happy” most of the time. And that you’re grateful, really grateful for your kids and your life and all you’ve created, so far.
I also know that you still struggle in your marriage. You feel disconnected at times. You bicker and fight too much. And you definitely don’t have sex as often as you used to.
How do I know? Because I’ve been there. And because 8 out of 10 women who I coach experience this too.
Your relationship might look okay on the outside. People think you’re an awesome couple. It might be “OK”, even good, but its not amazing. You might still love each other, and respect each other but you don’t feel fully connected and as IN LOVE as you want to be. And basically, even though you have a lot to be grateful for your relationship is not something you’re crazy proud of, not at this point in your life.
Here’s the problem….
You’re not putting enough energy, attention and focus into your relationship.
You know it. I know it. And your husband knows it too.
Sure we can talk about how he’s not romantic anymore and how he should plan date nights and how he comes home after work and just shuts down and watches TV or scrolls through social media. That’s all real. I get it. But it’s also out of our control. We can’t change anyone else. (Believe me…I’ve tried). Especially our spouses.
What we CAN do is put energy, attention and focus on what we DO want. On the connection. On the romance. On the love, the kindness, the support, the adoration, whatever it is, we WANT. We can focus on THAT. And when we do, we create more of it.
We need to build a stronger foundation.
See after two people have been together a long time we stop meeting each other’s needs. It’s not intentional. It’s just what happens. We stop showing up for them intimately, sexually, sensually and playfully. Like we used to. And they stop showing up for us emotionally. Again, we can’t change them. What we CAN do is change our behavior. We can start showing up, really showing up, giving them their love language daily. (Please tell me you know what your love language is and what his love language is… if not, start there) And filling their bucket with what they need. That’s how you establish a stronger foundation. And from that strong solid foundation, you can keep building.
Most women come to my programs thinking that they just need to share their frustrations with their husband. They want to tell him all the ways he is not meeting their needs. And that will change things.
Nope. That will backfire. Trust me. Been there. Done that.
When we work on the foundation. The daily connection. Giving them their love language. DAILY. Setting up weekly date nights. Hosting weekly marriage meetings. Lining up quarterly overnights. (Yes even those) All of that leads to the romance, the intimacy, the love and adoration that you’re longing for.
It starts with US. And that’s ok. We were made for this. Relationships define us. We often feel more genuinely fulfilled when our relationships are flourishing.
Men are different. They’re from Mars and we’re from Venus. They define their success through their success. Usually in their jobs and through their financial freedom. But not us. Sure we might like both. And we can have both. But if there was ONE thing we defined our life by, it would be our intimate relationships. When we do that right. We know we’ve won at life.
So let’s make them a priority. Let’s take this relationship, this marriage, and make it the best relationship possible. Let’s not settle for good, let’s make it GREAT and then ExTRAORDINARY.
