Love is not Irritable

Didn't get a chance to write this up yesterday. It's difficult for me to come up with any areas of margin, since all we have right now is time away from each other. All of my margins in the first round were based on your relationship: having specific work hours, spend less time watching TV, focus on quality time not quantity. The margins I need now seem much more selfish, but since my husband and I are still not talking, I am focusing on taking care of myself. The margins I need right now are making time to take care of myself, eating better or exercising. I couldn't think of any wrong motivations this round.

  • What's helped me was also making  more time for sleep.  going to bed earlier.  It's a struggle to many nights, but it helps when I can.

  • Could you add in reading the bible a little more, or  adding in a little more prayer time if these areas may still be lacking?   Not saying I think they are, but just a thought.

  • Use the time away to grow grow grow. Don't waste it. I did for a while. I think if I had started working out when my wife left seven months ago I would have a six pack by now. Don't let this situation keep you from working on yourself- Physically, mentally, and spiritually. Definitely get into your Bible and read, study, and pray. And get a lot of sleep.

    "In peace I will both lie down and sleep; for you alone, O Lord, make me dwell in safety."

    Psalm 4:8

  • I wish sleep would happen. Unfortunately, stress is making that very difficult. I go to bed at a decent time, but lately I've been waking up around 2 and have trouble falling back to sleep. Last night I was up from 2 to 5. This also happened when he first left as well, so hopefully I will be able to sleep better soon.

    Time in the Bible and prayer are something that I currently have a lot of time for. I usually spend about two hours really devoted to this before bed, as well as constant prayer throughout the day.
