If my wife and I were to rename days 8-9 we wild rename it “remind me, why am I dong this again.” Things have been going the same this time around or at least that is what I am telling myself. And in all honesty as best I can recollect physically this is how I felt last time we did this. And I know my wife was feeling about the same as she does now back in April too. But psychologically it’s much different this time.
The other night my wife and I talked about why we were dong it and I directed her to her goals and what she hoped to accomplish this time around. You can read about her experience here. Last night I seriously was questioning why we were doing this and contemplating stopping. This was of course all internal dialogue because I want to be supportive of my wife and her supportive of me. We are far stronger together than apart. The thoughts passed and we only have 21 more days to go. My wife also has a verse just for this occasion.
“Finishing is better than starting. Patience is better than pride.”
~Ecclesiastes 7:8 (New Living Translation)
