It’s no secret amongst my friends that I tend to be forgetful, clumsy and sometimes just flat-out dumb. It’s not that I’m actually stupid or anything, but I do get lazy. And when people get lazy, they make mistakes that they knew were bound to happen! I will say that my life has really turned around in the past few years though. Is it because I found the power in myself to manage my time and priorities correctly? Of course not – it’s because I’m married! My wonderful wife does a great job of keeping track whenever we both have obligations to fulfill. For example, the air filters for my place used to last for years at a time. How gross is that, right? Well, when I was a bachelor, I believed it was up to the landlord to replace the air filters, but my landlord was the only person more lazy than I was. My air conditioning system also never received the proper seasonal tune-up it so desperately needed, because again – I believed that was up to the landlord to have my system check-ups scheduled. When my wife came into the picture, she taught me to change the air filter out every month, as well as call the front office every three months – every day, if needed – just to fulfill a work order for the heating and A/C units! My wife was the stubborn, unwavering anchor I needed in my life to develop thick skin and expect better from people around me. Plus, the air quality inside our home has never been better than it is now! I guess that’s the real secret to success in marriage: behind every great person, there’s a best friend supporting them.
