I developed this post from notes I took at a Mom’s Conference some months back. The speaker, Arlene Pellicane gave us tips on how to be happier as wives.

Happiness is a skill that you get to learn. So you have to be very intentional about being happy. As a wife, you go where you focus. So focus on the positive things; the things that are right. Here are ways to be happier.
Be Hopeful

When you have hope, you have everything you need to change. Let your hope be in God and not in your circumstances. Learn to praise God because when you do so, hope rises in you. I feel a sense of security whenever I lift my voice to thank God. Sometimes this happens when I am doing dishes and get moody over something. Praising God just makes every burden light and gives hope.

Be Adaptable

Do activities together with your husband that you won’t normally do. For instance, if your man likes working out, join him. Don’t be too stiff to try new things. You might find something you really like when you are adaptable.

Be Positive

This doesn’t mean sweeping things under the rock. Use your words in constructive ways. Give away as many smiles as you can because a smile is a powerful way to give out positivity.

Be Purposeful

Have the same drive for your marriage as you have for other things. When you put energy into your marriage, it improves. Don’t let your marriage get boring.

Be Yielded

Your husband is the head of the home. Be the kind of wife you want your son to have. You are not supposed to be the silent partner. However, don’t let your husband feel like you are wearing the pants in the house.

Happiness is:

  • About contentment
  • Looks out for others
  • Can live in any circumstance
  • Chooses respect
  • Forgives
Be happy with the husband that you have. Selah

  1. One has to intentionally decide to be happy. Nice one!

    Chapter fourteen of Wrong but Right is here again. Enjoy people.
    Esther went to her room still fuming. She couldn’t believe it. It was so unbelievable that it had taken a lot of strength not to barge into the kitchen and demand an explanation. If she hadn’t seen them herself, it would have been laughable. She couldn’t imagine how that girl would come into her house acting all innocent when all the while she had been planning to lay her hands on her son and to think she had been fond of the brat and treated her almost like her own.

  2. Thanks for reading, Kachee! We really have to choose to be happy rather than expect happiness to be automatic.
