Episode 074: Thoughts From Mom-nonymous
Episode 74: Indpendence Day with Leanne Linsky & The Boyfriend
Today Leanne and The Boyfriend discussed independence in relationships and marriage. I found it most interesting. How does one invest in both themselves and a relationship spiritually, physically, emotionally and financially?
Dynamics change over the years for various reasons. The wife is working or staying at home with the kids. One paycheck versus two. Friends opinions and influences, nights out apart, can help establish some independence. They also talked about separate vacations hobbies, sports, and drinking, drugs etc.
Family illness and deaths are all factors we face as a couple. As individuals we all see it and feel if differently.
Your QUESTION OF THE DAY is “How do each of us celebrate our own independence?”
I do celebrate independence in my everyday life. Especially the freedoms I still have. I’m lucky to share each and everyday with my husband. We celebrate that physically we are still able to do various activities and get out with friends. On the home front we especially enjoy reading a book and listening to beautiful music What could possibly be a better way to celebrate our independence?
