I think this may be the first challenge that I’ve all the magazines, TV shows and marriage gurus talk about most. This is also something we worked on quite a bit during the first two years of our marriage. With a newborn running the show, we just didn’t have the time or the option to argue about silly things. And now, with another kid under the belt, we have even less time to spend on arguing, especially over petty things. Just to follow along with the challenge, I did think about what things I can just let go and not use to create drama. My husband is much better at this than I am, but after the years I’ve learned how to let these things roll off my shoulders as well. There were a few new issues that I decided to not argue over anymore. I think since I’m going to commit to putting those on the back-burner, it should give us both more peace of mind.
