I like to say that I’m an old fashion woman with a modern twist! I love my doors to be opened, I believe that the man is the head of the household, but I believe I can work if/when I choose to or if I have to!
As with anything in my life, I believe I can always do a better job at being a wife. Don’t get me wrong, I do a good (my hubby will say excellent) job, but I can always do better. I do take care of the house (cook, clean, organize), but a lot of times I slack off and hubby picks up the chores when I haven’t done it! Recently, it has been quite often that he picks up my slack. I have so much to learn. It’s been 3 years; you think I would’ve gotten it by now. It has all been a learning curve.
A lot of things has taken away my attention from my first priorites on earth (my family) so I am in the process of slowing down a lot! Owning a business (read more on that here), takes a toll on me as well as my hubby. But I’m slowing down on promoting my business as much as I used to and focusing more on my family. I believe this is what God has called me to do!
I know I have a lot to learn about marriage, but I have also learned a lot. I learned that I can be a selfish and selfless person. I have found out that I’m much stronger than I ever thought of myself. I have a desire to better myself so I can be of more help to my husband!
Being a wife doesn’t mean your life slows down (contrary to popular beliefs), it doesn’t mean that you lose yourself (although sometimes you do). Being a wife means that you have the opportunity to always be there for the person who compliments you. It means that experience life with someone who has vowed to stick with you until the very end. It means you have help and you get to be help to that very special someone. Being a wife is a great thing. Marriage is a great thing.
If you’re not married, don’t worry! Your time will come when God says so. Don’t rush it. Being married is great, but is also a great responsibility. Don’t take it lightly.
