10 Sure-Fire Ways to Make Your Wife Cry…With Joy!

10 Sure-Fire Ways to Make Your Wife Cry…With Joy!

As a husband some times it is good to make your wife cry. With joy!

Here are 10 ways to make your spouse so happy she can’t hold it in.

1. Book a surprise second honeymoon

This one could be a bank breaker, so it will probably take a while to plan (and save up for). Your honeymoon should have been one of the most enjoyable periods of your marriage, so giving your wife a chance to capture that joy – and spend some time with just the two of you – should make her happy enough to cry.

    Try and book the same hotel room at the same destination to recreate the original honeymoon if you can. Otherwise book a trip to somewhere she has always wanted to go. Make the trip about her, and you’re onto a winner.

    2. Renew your marriage vows

    When you got married, you make a life-long commitment to love and honour your wife. Over the years life can get in the way, placing a strain on your relationship. That doesn’t mean you don’t love your wife any more, but sometimes she may feel a little unloved. So why not renew your wedding vows as a sign of your ongoing love and commitment?

    You could try to re-enact the original ceremony entirely, or go for something completely new. For maximum tears potential, try combining a vow renewal ceremony with a second honeymoon.

    3. Write her a love letter

    In the age of the SMS text message and email, most of us have forgotten the emotional power of a handwritten love letter. Which is why your wife is likely to burst into tears if you send her one.

    You can write whatever you like in a love letter; if you’re confident enough, try a poem, otherwise you can just tell your wife all the things you love about her. Keep it positive, keep it fluffy and you’re on to a winner. And if you lack the confidence to come up with something on your own, there’s nothing wrong with finding a poem or some song lyrics that say what you want her to hear.

    4. Make her a photo scrapbook

    During your life together you have probably taken hundreds of photos. But with digital cameras and pictures stored on your computer, your memories are often out of sight, out of mind.

    Take the time to collect together photographs from significant milestones in your marriage and assemble them into a photo scrapbook for her. Don’t forget to ask friends and family to see if they have any good photos you can use too. Once you have everything together, get the photos printed and mounted into a good quality book. Make little notes about each life event and how they made you feel, what you remember and why you love those memories.

    If you’re not crafty enough to assemble the book yourself, see if you can track down a talented scrapbooker who may be able to put the book together for you. Your wife will love the effort you put in, and reading how much you love being with her is sure to reduce her to tears…of joy!

    5. Do something she asks. The first time.

    Men and women have different priorities – we all know this fact only too well. But too often as husbands we allow our own priorities to override those of our wife, leading to all kinds of tensions in our relationships.

    When your wife asks you to do a job or a chore, it’s because that task is quite important to her. So give her a joyful surprise by carrying out her requests at the first time of asking for a month. Not only is this a great way to give your wife tears of joy, but it is also relatively cheap!

    6. Buy her flowers

    Clichéd? Absolutely. Cheesy? Not at all. When you were dating, chances are you bought your wife flowers at least once in an effort to make her smile. So why not surprise her with a special delivery? Now the challenge is to try and remember which are her favourites blooms!

    7. Go on a date

    What did you use to do before the kids came along? Bowling? Dancing? The movies? Sometimes just a night out with just the two of you will be enough to melt your wife’s heart. Remember your time and company is more valuable to her than your money or any gift it could buy.

    8. Make an effort to get on with her mother

    Tradition has it that husbands and mothers-in-law can never get on. But the truth is that by keeping our heads down and our mouths shut, we can get on with just about anyone, including her. So invite your mother-in-law round for dinner, engage in polite conversation and make your wife’s day. For added brownie points, don’t moan about her after she leaves either.

    9. Clean the house for a week

    Keeping the house clean and tidy isn’t fun – your wife has probably told you as much in the past. So why not give her a week off? If you can keep the house clean to her standards for a week, she’s guaranteed to be so happy she cries. And you will appreciate her all the more afterwards too.

    10. Run her a bath

    Sometimes it’s the smallest things that have the biggest effect. Try running your wife a bath and leaving her to enjoy a quiet, relaxing read in the tub. Just an hour or two away from reality will help her feel a whole lot happier, and help you gain extra man credits in the process.

    10 Simple Ways To Always Think Positive Thoughts

    Positive thinking can lead to a lot of positive change in your life. Developing an optimistic outlook can be good for both your physical and mental health.

    But sometimes, certain situations arise in life that makes it hard to keep a positive outlook. Take steps to make positive thinking become more like your second nature and you’ll reap the biggest benefits.

    Here are 10 ways to make thinking positive thoughts easy:

    1. Spend Time with Positive People

    If you surround yourself with constant complainers, their negativity is likely to rub off on you.

    Spend time with positive friends and family members to increase the likelihood that their positive thinking habits will become yours too. It’s hard to be negative when everyone around you is so positive.

    2. Take Responsibility for Your Behavior

    When you encounter problems and difficulties in life, don’t play the role of the victim. Acknowledge your role in the situation and take responsibility for your behavior.

    Accepting responsibility can help you learn from mistakes and prevent you from blaming others unfairly.

    3. Contribute to the Community

    One of the best ways to feel good about what you have, is to focus on what you have to give.

    Volunteer in some manner and give back to the community. Helping others can give you a new outlook on the world and can assist you with positive thinking.

    4. Read Positive and Inspirational Materials

    Spend time each day reading something that encourages positive thinking. Read the Bible, spiritual material, or inspirational quotes to help you focus on what’s important to you in life. It can be a great way to start and end your day.

    Some recommendations for you:

    5. Recognize and Replace Negative Thoughts

    You won’t be successful at positive thinking if you’re still plagued by frequent negative thoughts. Learn to recognize and replace thoughts that are overly negative. Often, thoughts that include words like “always” and “never” signal that they aren’t true.

    If you find yourself thinking something such as, “I always mess everything up,” replace it with something more realistic such as, “Sometimes I make mistakes but I learn from them.”

    There’s no need to make your thoughts unrealistically positive, but instead, make them more realistic.

    6. Establish and Work Toward Goals

    It’s easier to be positive about problems and setbacks when you have goals that you’re working toward. Goals will give you motivation to overcome those obstacles when you encounter problems along the way. Without clear goals, it’s harder to make decisions and gauge your progress.

    Learn to set SMART goals to help you achieve more.

    7. Consider the Consequences of Negativity

    Spend some time thinking about the consequences of negative thinking. Often, it can become a self-fulfilling prophecy.

    For example, a person who thinks, “I probably won’t get this job interview,” may put less effort into the interview. As a result, he may decrease his chances of getting the job.

    Create a list of all the ways negative thinking impacts your life. It likely influences your behavior, your relationships, and your feelings. Then, create a list of the ways in which positive thinking could be beneficial.

    8. Offer Compliments to Others

    Look for reasons to compliment others. Be genuine in your praise and compliments, but offer it frequently. This will help you look for the good in other people.

    9. Create a Daily Gratitude List

    If you start keeping a daily gratitude list, you’ll start noticing exactly how much you have to be thankful for. This can help you focus on the positive in your life instead of thinking about all the bad things that have happened in the day.

    Getting in the habit of showing an attitude of gratitude makes positive thinking more of a habit. Here’re 40 Simple Ways To Practice Gratitude.

    10. Practice Self-Care

    Take good care of yourself and you’ll be more equipped to think positively.

    Get plenty of rest and exercise and practice managing your stress well. Taking care of your physical and mental health will provide you with more energy to focus on positive thinking.
