Favorite Things

The Sound of Music has got to be one of your all-time favorite movies.

Hands down, the best movie ever. I just love it because I love that song “Your Favorite Things.” How when the dog bites and the bee stings and when you’re feeling sad, you just remember what those are and it makes you feel better, changes your perspective.

Well, there’s a lot of truth in that, a lot of psychology actually that backs that up and it all has to do with attitude, and that has an impact on our relationships.

It sure does with marriage. Because when you focus on something you don’t like about your spouse or marriage, you get filled with self-pity or resentment. When you remember what you love, it fills you with gratitude.

And that keeps your spouse as one of your favorite things.
