Is Bigger Really Better?

When you got married, you said the words of commitment we all know so well about for better or worse, for richer or for poorer and so on. Those words are wonderfully inspiring, but real life sometimes make those vows seem as if they are mocking couples after they’ve been married for several years. The vows aren’t the problem because they are simply defining true commitment. What becomes difficult is keeping the love and romance alive in a marriage.

If you can think back to the first year you and your spouse were dating (or weeks for some!) before getting married, try and recall how overwhelming that feeling of love was for that person. When you remember, try to think about doing something so huge that it reflects the amount of love you once felt and continue to feel for your spouse.

When thinking about what you can do to express how you feel towards your spouse, think as big as you can while considering financial restrictions. You won’t need to use baby steps when trying to be romantic. When it comes to showing your love and commitment in any marriage, bigger is ALWAYS better.

You know the big cardboard box that the new appliance was delivered in? You remember because it caused some financial strain between you and your spouse. It was also a source of conflict because you both had something different in mind when picking it out. Take the big cardboard box and make a card out of it. Simply cut out two of the larger sides keeping the natural fold as the center of your card, tape or glue paper bags to cover up and unwanted wording on the outside and make the biggest card he or she will ever receive. The sentiment is up to you, as you know best what he or she needs to hear.

Make a jumbo sized banner for your love. Tape construction paper together or you can order a banner just by doing a quick search on the Internet. Try to make your banner at least 12 feet long and decorate it yourself. You can get stencils at your local craft store if your handwriting simply won’t compliment your effort.

Have you every seen your local high school(s) holding fundraisers? You can offer your local high school’s marching band, choir or other entertainment ensemble a donation in order to serenade your spouse at home. Imagine the surprise on your spouse’s face when he or she hears their favorite song playing live from the front yard! If you go for something this big, make sure you remember to videotape it so that you can relive it over and over again.

You don’t have to be dramatic or especially outrageous in order to pull off a big, loving gesture for your spouse. Even the most reserved and quiet person can find it in them to put a banner together or cut some cardboard for the one that they love. Many people who have already enjoyed the results of their efforts proudly display their “big” romantic gift permanently in their home or they placed it securely in a safe place.

Dream Interpretation – Dreams of Being Naked

One of the most common dreams around the world is the one in which the dreamer is naked. Dreams of being naked can have several interpretations, and the nakedness in the dream can manifest itself in a number of different ways.

In some naked dreams, the dreamer is simply going about his or her own business, commuting to work driving in the car, walking around the neighborhood, etc. In many cases, the dreamer is completely unaware of his or her nakedness and not at all bothered by it.

In other cases, the dreamer is aware of his or her nakedness but no one else seems to notice at all.

Dreams in which no one but the dreamer notices the nakedness are often indications that the fears bothering the dreamer are unfounded, and …

How To Choose A Fishing Rod And How To Make It Last

No sportsman wins by sheer talent alone. No matter how talented a sportsman is, if his equipment is not good enough, his chances of winning will remain slim. That is because his equipment will hinder rather than help his game. A runner needs good shoes to run. A bowler needs a bowling ball that weighs and fits right in his hand. The same goes with a fisherman and his fishing rod.

Fishing is a sport that many people find enjoyable. It is always a challenge to get the elusive fish to bite the bait, and sitting still for hours on the end just to be able to catch fish can be very relaxing. But regardless of the challenge and the relaxation that fishing offers, the goal of fishing is still to catch some fish. Barring bad luck and circumstances that are really unfavorable for fishing, a good fishing rod is necessary for a good catch.

If you are a beginner at fishing, it is perfectly all right to use a simple fishing rod and reel – nothing spiffy and nothing fancy. When you are jus…
