Motivating Each Other 👫

I’m married to an aspiring actor, dancer and performer. When I married my husband I thought I was going to run my business and my husband would work and come back home and we would enjoy each others company. Eventually we would have children and enjoy life together. Then one day he wanted to move to New York City without a job and pursue his dream.

When I heard what he said I knew right there that he was serious. I had to support him but I had the option to complain and stay behind if I wanted to. He told me to stay behind and that we would be together but following our own dreams.

I thought about it hard and realized that my business can be run anywhere and that I’ll just have to find any job I can so that I’m making money and he would too.

What was crazier was that he wanted to perform on the streets. So, not only was he moving us to the Big Apple but he wasn’t going to keep a job. 😤

I was furious.

Again, I had to suck it up. My job was to push him and motivate him to reach his goals and not to complain about his decisions. You see, why would I bring my husband down everyday when I can lift him up and actually motivate him to make money and work hard.

That’s my only job. If in the end he makes nothing and does nothing of himself, We’re still married. We have to stay together. If you don’t have a person in life motivating you to follow your dreams then it may be that you have to drop this person from your life. Make sure you speak to them first.

My husband sat me down and let me know that he needs someone that will motivate and push him to do what he wants to do and if I was not going to be that person then we’ll always butt heads and argue with each other. Even if you don’t believe in me, don’t tell me that. Tell me you believe in me and that everything is possible.

No one likes negative people and people that are always bringing you down. Be the positivity in your parter’s life.
