A while back I did a series where I invited people to ask me questions. While it seems as though I abandoned the questions that the kind readers asked me, alas I have not. I am bringing it back today (can you guess I was at loss for what to write?)
So Ashley asked: What is it like being married to a focused, driven person when you are more laid back in personality?
I really like this question. Really only in the past few years would I consider myself a laid back person. It's almost like the more focused and driven my husband has become, the more laid back I have become.
Have you ever seen the scene in Rocky where Rocky describes his relationship with Adrian? Rocky says, "She got gaps, I got gaps, together we fill gaps." I love it! That is what a great marriage is about, filling gaps.
Does my laid back personality ever clash with his drive? Of course, but we make a conscience effort to compliment each other. My hope is that at the end of our lives, he will look back and say that I helped him relax and enjoy the crazy ride. And that I will look back and see what an amazing ride I got to experience with him.
