Over the weekend I saw a commercial that was about marriage and practicing acts of kindness towards your spouse.
I have seen this commercial several several times but this weekend for some reason it got me thinking. Which is always a little scary for those who know me.
The commercial is all about doing a chore for your spouse that they hate doing...ie taking out the trash etc.
At first I laughed at this commercial.
I am not sure why but I started laughing about practicing random acts of kindness towards your partner. Not a normal response but the one I had. Then I thought everyone knows you only preform random acts of kindness with strangers.
But then I thought why would I think that? You have to perform acts of kindness to everyone especially your significant other. Who better to be kind to than the person you love.
Now I am left wondering what random act of kindness can I do for The BF.....I can think of none.
I can think of ways to be kind but I can't think of any choirs I can do for The BF. Maybe I can think of some choirs but he would start to wonder what I was up to if I all the sudden did the dishes.
So now I am going to try to just be kind. (Note to The BF...Don't laugh I am serious).
I am usually kind (to strangers) but during those moments when I want to scream; I am going to try and take a deep breath and do something nice for The BF no matter how annoyed I am at him. This may be harder than when I tried to be patient.
