Ordinary to Extraordinary Series 

An extraordinary relationship, do you want one? Unlike unicorns and fairies, they are real and attainable. There are simple things you can do to make the change from ordinary to extraordinary. 

 You Must Believe 

First, you must, without a doubt believe extraordinary relationships are possible to attain. You must be willing to have the right frame of mind and attitude. Often, people think great relationships can only happen to other people. That is simply wrong thinking. 

Effort Required

However, if you are not convinced that you can learn and apply amazing relationship skills to your relationship then you are doomed for failure one hundred percent of the time. It is most likely you won’t make the effort to learn the skills necessary to change unless you are at least willing to give it a good try. Not a just-one-and-done and it didn’t work kinda try. You must be willing to put in the effort and belief to see success. 

 Make the Right Choice 

 Secondly, know that extraordinary relationships and amazing marriages exist, and most importantly you can choose to have one too. Before getting married at nineteen years old, I didn’t know marriage could be extraordinary. And you could have enduring romance, laughter, and joy in a marriage.  

 When we said our “I do’s” we knew we planned to be married for life. Very quickly I realized I had the power to be miserable or have the most marvelous relationship experience ever. I chose the second choice. 

Oh boy, I’m glad I did and exceptionally glad my husband did too. 

 See the Good 

 Thirdly, choose to see the good in your spouse. When you see them as valuable then you will treat them in exceptional ways. I once heard and now very much believe that we find what we are seeking. If you concentrate on your significant one’s faults that is exactly what you will see. It is very likely you will fail to see the wonderful traits that attracted you in the first place. 

 My Advice: 

 Live with the belief that the extraordinary is possible for you. Choose to see the best and you will find it in your mate. And then enjoy an exceptional relationship for life.

    Excellent, insightful tips for an extraordinary marriage, DeeDee.

    The phrase, “If you concentrate on your significant one’s faults, that is exactly what you will see,” is a timely reminder to me today. We are navigating a demanding extended family situation right now, and that tip will help maintain the sweetness of our extraordinary relationship.

    Thank you, DeeDee
