This time around, the negative list was easier. I found myself not having very many negative thoughts about my husband. This list gets shorter and shorter each round. One thing that I noticed that was really funny, is that some of the things on the negative list from the first round, are actaully on the positive list the second time. For example, I didn't like that my husband hunted as much as he does, but now, I like the fact that he hunts and is an outdoors kind of guy. I want to enjoy those things thing with him. I want to go hunting and fishing with him. I wouldn't say all the time or anything. I am a city girl as heart, but I want to share those moments with him and be more involved in his life.
The positive list is still growing. I'm adding to it every time I think of another attribute that I love about my husband. This time around I'm going to add to it through the whole journey instead of just sitting down for a couple of minutes and thinking about them.
I knew that I wasn't going to be seeing my husband for this dare so I decided to buy a Thank You card that was blank inside. All it said was Thank You on the outside and then I wrote on the inside,"Thank you for always listening and being such a caring person." I left it for him on the windshield of his truck so he would receive it when he left work.
Think back on how differently you looked at things, how differently you looked at him. Makes a big difference when you take selfishness out of it.
