I got to thinking about what we choose to pay attention to – and how it affects our relationships. Especially how what we pay attention to over the long-term affects a marriage, where it’s so easy to “let things slide.”
While we spend our time paying attention to something, there are always things we’re missing.
Throughout the day, there’s so much input coming our way – the internet, reality television, the radio – it seems endless.
And because there’s so much coming at us, we’re making choices all day long about what we’ll let in.
We Pay Attention to What We Think Is Important
In our relationships we make the same kind of choices. We choose what we pay attention to in our partner.
And often what we choose to pay attention to is all we’ll see.
What Are You Paying Attention to in Your Partner?
Are you missing something good because your attention is focused elsewhere?
Are you noticing the “slights” and not seeing the good stuff?
What are you paying attention to regarding your kids?
Do you see their gifts or are you focusing on their behavior?
Often we only see what we choose to see…
Be aware of where you choose to focus your attention and where you don’t.
