In the meantime, this week will be all me.
I know... you're totally excited.
I'm a quote snob. Love them.
So each post will be short, hopefully, and based off of a quote I found and thought would be fun to talk about with you guys.
“Stay committed to your decisions, but stay flexible in your approach.”--Tom Robbins
How can that not be more true then in a relationship?

You commit yourself to one person... for some, until death do you part, for others, forever, and the rest, you have committed in your heart and mind and soul. You made a decision that the person you want to spend everyday with and share your most important moments with is that person you have committed yourself to.
But any relationship requires flexibility, does it not? You go into any relationship, and especially it seems, marriage, with certain expectations. You made your decision and you have these ideas of how things are going to be. But any relationship takes at least two different ideas and perspectives... so without flexibility to compromise or change or adjust those expectations or ideas--that relationship will likely fail or be terribly rigid with that feeling of being closed in and stuck.
That is when people want out. That is when people can't do it anymore.
When someone made their decision but either they or the other party in the relationship wasn't flexible in their approach.
What do you guys say??? Do you agree? Do you have anything to add? Do you think I'm nuts?
