Thursday Throwback – Take a Week

September 1, 2016

in the generous life

(originally posted September 21, 2013)

I don’t know about y’all, but I am daily inundated with information. Most of it is good stuff, really, but there is just so much of it.

What I’ve done to counteract the overload, is to pick one thing and practice it for a week. That way I’m not just reading ideas and tucking them on an already overloaded shelf in my mind. I’m actually thinking it through and learning to incorporate the idea into my life.

Take a Week - Practice a new marriage skill all week long.

Whether it’s something as simple as saying “I love you” a few times in my day or something more complex as working kindness or generosity into my life, it helps to focus, slow the process and intentionally work it into my daily living.

I would encourage y’all to take a daily tip (or something from the links I share) and make it a practice for a week. See what changes it makes in your marriage relationship. Some ideas are worth keeping for a lifetime.

Knowledge is of no value unless you put it into practice.  Anton Chekhov
