I was always a troublemaker
I would like to share my experience with the V Woman book.
I am my husband’s second wife and I always had in mind to have a different relationship with my husband, but I confess that by myself I wouldn’t be able to achieve this. I was lacking wisdom and your book was the missing link between me and the source of wisdom.
I became a much calmer woman, more considerate, more caring, more helpful with my husband’s and daughter’s needs. I try my hardest to practise the tasks in the book and this has had a fantastic affect on me. I am no longer self-centered, but think of them, and as a result they have changed too.
I no longer complain about the things I need to do for my family even if I feel exhausted. I do it with pleasure and do you know what? I started noticing a satisfaction in making my home a happier one.
My husband’s job involves night work and late evenings and I used to pull a long face because I would always end up having dinner by myself and our daughter. I would always complain and I am sure that at times, he preferred not to be at home due to so many arguments from my side. But it’s all changed. Now, whenever he is around, I make him feel like the king of the family! I clean, make the house smell good, decorate the house, buy flowers, if I can, I cook his favourite dishes, creating a pleasant and happy environment. From constant arguments, we have become a happy family and my husband now does everything for us to be closer.
I learned to make time for everything. I wake up in the morning with my day well planned in my mind. As a result, I am able to do so many things. I have specific days for everything there is to do. I learned that if I’m organised, I have time to do what I need to do without neglecting other things. When I needed coffee, I would I rush to the supermarket, where I ended up buying more things and with that change, I even started to save money. Now I am even prepared for emergencies!
I started looking after my health by being more selective and careful with what I eat on a daily basis. The result? Many compliments and much admiration from my husband.
Socially, I am learning to talk less and to listen more. I was always a trouble- maker and also very impulsive which caused so many uncomfortable situations throughout my life. Today, I am more tolerant.
Everyday I ask myself: “As a V Woman, what is expected of me?”
Your book has worked wonders on me. Happy is the one that has the opportunity to get their hands on this book, be it a man or a woman because it is a true manual to a happy life. It’s exactly what I needed. This book has become my favourite item whenever I want to give someone a gift!
