Who else gets that Monday morning feeling? Even if we love our jobs, there’s always at least a little part of us that longs for 5 more minutes, to stay tucked up in your pyjamas, or to just have one more day.
So that’s why I’ve decided to make Monday’s my ‘Marriage Motivation days’. A little something to pick us up when that Monday morning feeling comes over us in our own relationships – because it does from time to time – a little reminder of what you’re doing, why you’re doing it and what this love and marriage thing is all about.
To kick off the series I thought the above quote from Franklin P. Jones was a goody:
“Love doesn’t make the world go round, love makes the ride worthwhile.”
As much as it may feel like it in the dreamy beginnings of any relationship, Love isn’t (at least not practically) the be-all and end-all. You still need a roof over your head – you still need to eat and enjoy other basic functions, you still need to go to work and earn a living. But that beautiful, inexplicable emotion is what makes the mundane, the routine, the Monday morning feelings, all worthwhile.
If I’ve had a bad day at work, if we’re having financial problems, even if I’ve had a minor meltdown because there are a pile of dirty socks strewn over the bathroom floor – my husband is there, and that makes all the everyday niggles and mundane routines worth it. Him, our love and the lives we’ve created together are all worth it. Every single, Monday morning!
