From Our Lives

This week wasn’t my best. We had a couple of fights. They weren’t about anything serious and they could have been fixed quickly but they weren’t.

Over the past two years we have learned that the adage, “Remember, Remind, Do”, is an important part of our relationship.

It’s okay if I forget, but when I am reminded, I need to quickly and happily fix my mistake.

It’s also okay to be the person doing the reminding, as long as I move on once the issue is fixed.

We all have lots of things going on in our lives, and so it is reasonable that sometimes we forget.

The important part is to focus on working together. It isn’t about me. It isn’t about my spouse. It is about us.

Monica Gabriel Marshall


“Life is easier when you know what you want—but most people don't take the time to figure out what they want.”

— James Clear


“Often the difference between a successful man and a failure is not one's better abilities or ideas, but the courage that one has to bet on his ideas, to take a calculated risk, and to act.”

— Maxwell Maltz
