Heeyyyyy! Hooooooo! Heeeyyyyy! Hooooo!!! (I'm sure you heard that in the ole 90's hip hop format?!)
Here I am reflecting on the book I continue to digest The 5 Love Languages! As I am reading it and listening lately to the podcast "Rise Together" with Rachel and Dave Hollis. What sticks out in my mind the most, especially as I continue down my path of personal development... I know you've never heard this before but... "Actions speak louder than words"!
Hard to believe huh? 😜Well the serious point is, no matter how many books you read, how many podcasts you listen to, how many videos you watch, or even talking to a therapist. If you don't apply these in your daily life. You will NOT make it a habit. You will go right back to your "normal rut". Ain't nobody got time for that! 😂😂
The subject seems simple...no matter what you are working on. If you don't consistently change your actions...you can talk all you want, but you need to follow through! Just in recent weeks I have applied a lot of these practices and have noticed significant difference in our 20 year marriage. Even something as simple as a little smooch. Don't just settle, don't just "go with the flow"! You need to mix it up, show some appreciation, and keep "developing"!
Feel free to share your thoughts or practices below.. let's share and learn together!
