Up next you can hear Aaron Walker’s Adult Emergency: He needs help because Robyn hurt his feelings!
If you’ve been married for some time, are you laughing like you used to? Is the same sense of intimacy there? Does your heart skip a beat when your wife walks in the door because you are so excited to see her? If not, why not? What’s going on?
“I know for me whenever there are relational issues in my marriage I don’t have to look much further then myself to find a culprit. It’s not about who is to blame, but I need to own when I screw up. My worst sin is getting so engrossed in my work I spend all my energy at work and leave little for my family when I get home.” - Danny Bauer
Aaron talks about a time when Robin hurt his feelings by telling him that they don’t laugh like they used too. When Aaron and Robin have disagreements, they don’t holler and yell or scream and fight, they sit down and talk through it. Aaron wanted to defend himself but realized what Robin said was the truth.
“We don’t laugh anymore because I’m a knucklehead, because I get so focused on what I am doing and I’m so intense about what I’m doing and I get laser focused. I forget to laugh sometimes.” - Aaron Walker
Aaron admits that he is guilty of forgetting to laugh sometimes. He forgets to relax and have fun and let his guard down because he is so busy trying to make money and build the community and create his best life. Aaron wants to challenge and encourage you today to go home, get your spouse, go out, have fun and laugh. It’s worth it.
“But what is the point in all that if we forget to laugh?” - Aaron Walker
Sometimes that’s all we need to wake the heck up!
“It was a small point in the story, but I highly recommend that you put artifacts around your house that illustrate and symbolize your ideal relationship and life to the fullest. We need reminders of our why.” - Danny Bauer
