My Thought For Today: Me Time Compromise

Happy TGIF!  Another weekend is here and so are the plans we have been making for Friday through Sunday evening! 
Sometimes our plans are to relax, kick back and take it easy.  Other times, we may want to hang out, shop or stroll around the community, to release some anxiety and stress, we have been dealing with all week.  Many times, no matter how well you make plans, something else always seems to get in the way.  Have you ever had that happen to you? 

Your spouse or significant other, may have made plans for the both of you and because you had no idea what he or she was planning, you share with them nicely, that you already made some plans of your own, for the weekend.  Nothing negative of course, but perhaps she wants to get with the girls this weekend to plan a craft show or network on entrepreneur ideas or he may want to catch up with the guys to watch a football game on television or better yet, go to a live football game, that is happening right in town that weekend. 

This happens!  Yes, especially when you have a spouse or significant other, that loves spending time with you.  That's a good thing, for sure.  But, sometimes, we, as individuals, just want that "me time", sometimes.  So, what do you do when this happens and before it turns into a dispute?  Compromise.

Meet each other halfway.  Come to an understanding, make a deal, make concessions, find a happy medium, strike a balance, give and take. Just find a way to compromise, quickly, so the weekend does not pass, either of you by.  A true love story never ends.  It just keeps getting better...
Have a nice weekend ;-) and if you can relate to this thought for the day, please share your "love story" comments at the end of this post!  I would love to hear from you!
