When children are young, it’s fascinating to watch their growth and milestones. It’s easy to be excited about watching them learn how to roll over, crawl, talk, walk, and tie their shoes. As we all get older, there’s a sameness about us that isn’t so exciting.
The sixth and final Key to an Intimate Marriage is to “Seek Growth”. In your marriage, that means:
If you’re doing the same things over and over, it gets boring and unfulfilling no matter how wonderful it was the first time.
You need to check in with yourself and your partner about what you each know about yourselves and each other that you didn’t know 10 years ago, 10 days ago, or even 10 minutes ago.
What do you desire now? How has that changed?
Be clear and intentional about how you prioritize growth.
No matter what happens in your relationship, you can see it through the lens of growth. Ask yourself what you can focus on and what there is to learn, so that whatever you are experiencing will be inspiration for you to grow and evolve.
