If you’ve listed your new year’s resolutions without including one for your marriage, hopefully after reading the previous post you’ve added it as a priority.
There are plenty of things that you could do to start improving your marriage, but there is one thing that needs to be done before moving forward.
Quit going backwards.
What do I mean by that?
To cleanly move on to all of those things that you can do and change, you need to first forget about the past. Leave behind all the failures and mistakes of the past year. Forget about all the things that were left undone or should have been done.
The past does not dictate your future. It can only affect your future and hold you back if you let it. If you realize that this is a new year, or that this is a new day, you can start from this point and try to do better.
Not only should you leave behind your past, but you should do the same with the past of your husband or wife. Forget about all of the mistakes and failures of your spouse. They’re just as human as you are.
It’s time to believe that things can change…starting now. Leave the past behind and begin thinking about what you can do now and in the future.
