My husband gives advice whether I want to hear it or not because that is what happens when you marry someone with an engineering (enginerial?) mind. We’ve been together for nearly twenty years and I’ve learned it’s much easier to just listen to him for a tiny portion of the day than not because then you (really I) will end up listening to it on repeat for the rest of the day. Well this morning we were going over something that happened to me a few years ago (everyone needs a little unanswered mystery in their lives so I won’t tell you what happened to me) but his piece of advice to me was poignant so I will share it with you:

You can’t see people as static. Instead, understand that they are a bundle of potential, and you must see that potential and love them for it. 

Have a good Monday!
