Day 6 – Stuck With Me

One Month to Love!
This was an awesome book, check out my review and I wanted to share with y’all the “important” parts to me. This is by far not what the whole book is about, but just a glimpse of what I thought was catching, or needed to be shared. I will be going through each day, as this will be sorta like my “journal”.

There are 4 weeks involved:
Week 1: The Art of Being All There
Week 2: The Art of Acting Intentionally
Week 3: The Art of Risking Awkwardness
Week 4: The Art of Letting Go

Day 6 of Week 1: Stuck With Me

Stuckwithme

The greatest happiness in life is the conviction that we are loved – loved for ourselves, or rather, loved in spite of ourselves. ~Victor Hugo

If you’re never scared or embarrassed or hurt, it means you never take any chances. ~Julia Sorel

Good feelings aren’t reliable enough to sustain any relationship.
Our commitment to each other is the scaffolding that our key relationships are built on. Romance, shared dreams, laughter, memories, and deep conversations are the plaster and paint we use to decorate our relationships, but without commitment everything else will disintegrate with the little earthquakes that come into every life.

When they said “Till death do us part,” there was integrity in their promise. They’re been held together by the strength of their commitment.
Love is more than a song, a dream, or a feeling.

In friendship, commitment means being there for someone even when it’s not convenient.
In family relationships, it’s being by someone’s side even after years of dealing with a disappointing father, or brother stuck in addiction.
In marriage, commitment means that divorce isn’t an option.
In parenting, commitment means that you won’t check out when your kids disappoint you; you’ll stay engaged in their lives.
In the end, you don’t hold your commitments, your commitments hold you.

Lasting Love Relationship Challenge
1) 1-5, how would you rate your commitment level in each of your key relationships?
2) What could you say or do to reinforce your commitment to the people who matter most to you so they’ll feel more secure with you?
3) How does your relationship with God affect the other relationships in your life?

In case you missed it:
Day 1 – The Most Important Thing
Day 2 – Face to Face
Day 3 – Zoning In
Day 4 – Being All There on a Deeper Level
Day 5 – Staying at the Table
