My husband and I are different in many ways, as many of you can probably relate. I am a saver, he is a spender. I am a planner, he is a spare of the moment kind of guy. I work a day time corporate career, he prefers working with his hands at night. Although we are different, we work well together for many reasons.
He makes decisions that I tend to dwell on, very simple. As I was recently pondering the decision to fix my current (fairly new) car or go ahead and purchase a new one. He told me, get what you want because life is too short not to. He always nudges me to live in the moment and that every thing does not require a thought out business plan. This is where not being exactly the same in a relationship is very beneficial. You push each other in different directions that allow you both to stand tall in the end.
He is a caterer and desires to have a brick and mortar location in our growing town of Midlothian, TX, however this is where my ability to plan comes in handy. I have done a ton of research on what makes a food business successful and I have shared this with him. This led us to compromise on moving forward with a plan to purchase and design a food truck that would allow his catering business to become more mobile and also allow him to build the customer loyalty that is necessary to sustain a brick and mortar location. Our ability to respect each other's differences and desire to see each other contantly win is what allows us to easily make the decision each day to remain married.
If you are someone who tends to be more thought out and calculated, it is easy to wait for the perfect timing, perfect job, perfect scenario to happen to do what it is that you are wanting to do. However, remember that each day that you are granted another breath you must live it to the fullest. You cannot worry about what others may think, do, or say because it is your life and not theirs. If there is something that you have been thinking about doing, stop waiting....just do it!
