I don’t know how you read fortunes from fortune cookies, but my husband and I add “in bed” on the end of whatever the fortune says.
It’s good lighthearted fun for us. We’re so easily amused. Good Lord! We need some hobbies.
We had Chinese food the other day and there were a few fortune cookies leftover. So I opened one today and chomped away on the cookie (they really aren’t that great, but I always eat the cookie).
Attitude is a little thing that makes a big difference…in bed.
Wow. If that isn’t true?!
So what about you? How is your attitude about sex lately? Are you kind of indifferent? Excited? Eager? Resistant? Bewildered? Optimistic? Pessimistic?
Suffice to say, a husband’s and wife’s individual attitudes about sex do impact each other. When you both have a positive attitude about sex, things are compounded in a good way and sex is mutually-valued and pursued. When you both have a negative attitude, not surprisingly, sex is easily downplayed or pushed to the side.
One of the hardest challenges is when one of you has a good attitude about sex and the other one has a bad attitude, and this dynamic leads to mounting resentment, frustration, animosity, anger, sadness and regret.
That’s why it is so encouraging that we ARE capable of improving our negative attitude about sex. We are. It’s at least a good start. So if you know you could stand to do some self evaluation on your attitude, are you willing to do it?
Take a breath and start to peel back the layers on any negative perspectives you have about sex in your marriage.
You never know. The day may come when you’re eating Chinese food and you finish up by reading your fortune with “in bed” on the end of it—and you smile and laugh and have good camaraderie with your spouse.
It could happen. It could.
