    Ok, I tried this one with my husband and I could not believe how much he actually got into it. We hadn’t laughed that hard in a long time-especially watching our video back 🙂 I must admit, it was a lot easier for me to point out things he could take away from the exercise. BUT, I did learn some things about myself. I tend to sit back and let him take the lead. When I see him struggling, I step up and take charge. Most of the time I was able to lead us in overcoming a challenge, but sometimes I was so absorbed in the role of leader that I couldn’t see we were doing the letter backwards or all wrong. I had no idea until seeing the playback. I have to think about how I do this in our lives and in our relationship… Maybe I become overconfident at times. And maybe there is something in my tone that makes it difficult for my husband to challenge me. Maybe we would both benefit from a conscious effort on my part to ask again for his opinion – even when he may be struggling at first.

    I found myself rushing through the exercise, imagining we had created the letter. Only looking back at the video did I see we had not completed the task when I wanted to think we had. For me the lesson might be rushing through things amidst being too busy and and missing out on some important things along the way.
