I always imagine women have got superpower to transform a bad day to a good one, and of course a good day to a bad one just like that! (*finger snaps*) We work our magic depends on our mood or how our husbands treated us. We can be naughty and nice; and turn from angel to devil. I always feel good about this ability of women: to transform. Give us something and we can turn it into something else, something nice, fancy, beautiful or delicious…
And sometimes I thought, since we are so powerful in a sense, why waste it on creating bad bad things which also makes ourselves feel bad? Why not constantly turn everything into pleasures according to our liking? After married, I realized that my role has changed from a “sole receiving party” to a “giving party“. I am now bestowed with the responsibility to provide love, happiness, care, support and a good life to my husband. I especially find this “providing role” pleasant when he is fond of me, favors my efforts and when I see him excel in life. And I think, this should be the whole point of me being a wife. I want my husband to be successful!
There’s an old joke about a president walking with his wife, who sees one of her old boyfriends in a less-than-glorious occupation. The president looks at the old boyfriend and remarks, “If you hadn’t married me, you might be married to that guy.” Then the first lady answers calmly, “If I had married him, he’d be president.”
As wives, we do possess this unique power to inspire our husbands. Our loving vision of the man he’s becoming propels him toward greatness—not necessarily by the world’s measure of success, or even your own, but of God’s. When we believe in him, he is secure. He can take the leaps of faith required to surmount fear. He can bear up under pressure, pioneer new territory. An inspired husband feels the freedom to reach the fullest potential of the man God has created him to be. He’s not merely encouraged. He’s a man who’s empowered; a conqueror. (Janel Breitenstein)
This realization had made me feel more secure about myself and my ability to transform! And this attitude and willingness to make relationship works, is exactly what he finds beautiful and sexy about me 🙂
