3 Essentials to Feeling Ridiculously Good Again

I recently sent out a survey in which I asked, “How would you best describe your marriage?”

Over 1000 people responded, and I was floored by the results:

This means the majority of the participants fall into the categories of bumpy, struggling, or falling apart.

Here’s the thing:

None of us stood at the altar and thought, “I can’t wait to have an average marriage.”

We all got married because we were in love. Because we were extremely happy. Because we found someone we wanted to spend the rest of our lives with.

Only happy people have happy relationships, which may sound obvious, but that wasn’t obvious to me when I was miserable.

I thought I was unhappy because of my marriage, and never realized that not knowing how to make myself happy was actually hurting my relationship–not the other way around.

Maybe you feel stuck. You know that being happy is possible, because you’ve lived it–maybe even for a long time–but somehow, now the spark is gone.

You’ve lost his attention, you’ve lost his affection, and you’ve lost yourself a bit, too.

When you said, “I do,” you meant for it to last forever. And that’s always been my goal–to help women figure out how to regain the relationship they’ve lost by showing them how to be the surrendered and empowered woman they’ve forgotten they are.

It is possible to be ridiculously happy again. You can be the woman to check the box saying, “My marriage is the best it’s ever been!”

It will start with you saying, “I’m the happiest I’ve ever been.”

It just takes some intentional work and knowing specifically what to do.

There are three things that come to mind when I think about what it took to delight myself and make my relationship vibrant again.

Instead of writing it all out here, I’ve put together three videos you can watch. It’s called 3 Essentials to Becoming Ridiculously Happy Again

I sat down and talked through what I think are the keys to getting your relationship back to that honeymoon phase, what may be missing and why I think it’s important.

A happily-ever-after story doesn’t come without a few bumps in the road. The question is: will you move past the bumps, or fall in the rut and never climb out?

Or will you become a master of making yourself ridiculously happy again and enjoy the sweet connection that follows?

I was the perfect wife--until I actually got married. When I tried to tell my husband how to be more romantic, more ambitious, and tidier, he avoided me. I dragged him to marriage counseling and nearly divorced him. I then started talking to women who had what I wanted in their marriages and that’s when I got my miracle. The man who wooed me returned.

I wrote a few books about what I learned and accidentally started a worldwide movement of women who practice The Six Intimacy Skills™ that lead to having amazing, vibrant relationships. The thing I’m most proud of is my playful, passionate relationship with my hilarious husband John–who has been dressing himself since before I was born.
