Y is for Youthful Zest
My theme for this year’s Blogging from A to Z April Challenge is Marriage from A to Z in 55 Words. Y is to continuously explore the Youthful Zest in Marriage!
It was a mess. Their reality was a far cry from the fairy tale they wanted it to be.
Life dissolved into a dull and lifeless routine.
Resentment brewed and disappointment overflowed.
The inner sparkle lost its sheen and the joy of sharing the life faded.
Their connection withered.
And then they disconnected…
A Word to the Wise

Disconnecting to connect is good, it is like going far to come closer 🙂 These past few days have been a lot of fun, reading posts about marriage and how to keep it going strong and happy. Enjoyed reading this one too.

This sounds good 🙂 The best secret in marriage is to be young despite the age ; you enjoy the relationship more and more 🙂 Youthful Zest, it indeed is !!

Duriya bhi hai zaruri… Reminds me of that song. Loved the play of words towards the end.

So true. Even simple things like trying a new restaurant every few weekends is a great thing to do for a couple. You never ever want to get into routine.. really.
Lovely post 🙂

Space is so important.
Love that quote at the end, Shilpa.

They disconnected to re-connect..its important in life and to make the relationship work beautifully:) Such a youthful zest that knows no boundary and flows beautifully in your writing:)

Yes, keeping that youthful zest is so important…not just for a happy marriage but for happiness itself. Even small things can help big time in keeping things fresh and lively.

I hear a lot of people saying that both men and women lose their self after 30 years and get into the race @work.But whai i believe is this, http://uniqusatya.wordpress.com/2013/08/15/the-child-in-you/

disconnect to reconnect…now thats my kinda quote 🙂

A person has to do new stuff from time to time to keep life and the relationship from becoming stagnant. ♥
April 29, 2014 8:57 pm|
And sometimes we have to let go….in order to move on.

Like Raj said, I too got reminded of yeh dooriyan bhi song!! Nice post dear!
April 29, 2014 9:45 pm|
I totally believe this and also in keeping one’s space too balanced with companionship to keep things fresh and the heart youthful 🙂
April 29, 2014 10:29 pm|
yep.. space is so important in a marriage. Its good to disconnect and reconnect. Keeps us young and the marriage young as well! 🙂

Break and space reinvigorate youthful zest…very true.

The old ‘absence makes the heart grow fonder’ maxim. Each person in a relationship has hobbies and interests that the other may or may not share. It is ok to support or participate in the other’s interest, and it is ok to do them each alone. My husband and I have different interests (things that make us light up inside), and feeding our souls individually makes us stronger together.

To be in the comfort zone but not rut, we need to disconnect to reconnect. Beautifully put Shilpa 🙂
April 30, 2014 1:05 pm|
very true and beautifully written, shilpa
April 30, 2014 2:33 pm|
I like the idea of youthful zest.
April 30, 2014 10:01 pm|
Shilpa thats an awesome pick! The question in last is something we should keep on asking ourselves, to keep the youthful zest alive! Too good! I am feeling young again! 🙂

Amen to this!! It is so important to take these small breaks to reconnect! Another superb 55er!

No,it isnt really important to et a break.
We are all humans.
A stage comes in life when all one realses the connect of happy married life…..everyone in your life moves on leaving you behind.

In every relationship distance always creates love and familiarity only breeds contempt.

Disconnection often leads to reconnection! Nice advice!
