What Your First Year of Marriage Teaches You

While one year of marriage hardly seems like an accomplishment (my grandparents made it to 50, after all!), I do believe that my first 365 days of matrimony have been significant — at least in terms of what I’ve learned along the way.

I can’t speak for other couples, but I can share my own experiences and what this first year has taught me about my relationship, myself and marriage in general.

First, I’ve learned that being married is far less stressful than wedding planning — at least for me. While I absolutely loved planning our wedding (so much so that I even became a wedding planner!), the process of making decisions for this huge event was a little… much at times. I felt so much pressure to make sure every choice was special, personal, and, well, right. Looking back, I’ve realized that I didn’t need to work myself up over things so much and that while I loved all the DIY projects and special touches I worked so hard on, they aren’t what made the day as memorable as it was.

Being married, while full of decisions and tasks (because, life), is much more mundane than planning to get married ever was — and thank goodness for that.

Another key lesson I learned has to do with my perception of marriage and how that’s changed. Before I was indeed an ol’ married lady, I thought of the institution as the ultimate secure status, the pinnacle of relationship success. While being merely boyfriend and girlfriend was a fragile relationship state (always the chance of breaking up!), being husband and wife was a dignified, solidified existence. I figured I wouldn’t ever have another doubting thought about a relationship again once I had a ring on my finger.

Even though I am confident in my marriage, love my husband, and know that he loves me — and while being married does in many ways feel like the cozy nest I always hoped it would — there is far more at stake when you’re wed than when you’re simply dating.

Perhaps because I am anxious and overly worried by nature, rather than feeling carefree, I find myself thinking critically about my choices as a wife — how my actions affect my husband, how I can communicate better, talk more gently, be the person I want to be. (And I beat myself up more than I ever did while we were dating when I lose my temper or say something I don’t really mean.)

I’m not extra hard on myself out of fear of divorce or a worry of disappointing my husband, rather, I now feel a deeper responsibly to just be better. Showing up for my partner, and our marriage, as my best self matters far more now than it ever did before. Since, of course, we’re in this for life and all.

Finally, I’ve learned that while I do feel a sense of responsibility to myself and my husband to continue to be a better person, marriage hasn’t really changed our daily lives all that much. We still go out for drinks with friends, watch The Bachelor on Monday nights, spend lazy Saturday mornings in our pajamas, and take turns making each other coffee. Yet, even when we do these everyday things, we do them as husband and wife.

I love being able to call the man I’ve chosen by his new, shiny title, and likewise being his Mrs. Sometimes, hearing the still new-to-us labels spoken aloud (like, when we introduce each other now as husband and wife) takes me by surprises. In a good way, of course. When I hear those words, I feel grown up in a way I never have before.

I can only hope that, when we’re celebrating our own 50th anniversary, I still feel this joy and satisfaction, even after the word “wife” has been uttered my way hundreds of times. As it stands now, I can’t imagine ever getting tired of hearing it.

What a Guy Who Ate an Entire Airplane Teaches Us About Stress

Of all the believe-it-or-not, world record stunts out there, one of the most intriguing and sensory-grating examples can teach us some important lessons about stress.

Meet Michel Lotito, aka “Mr. Eats All”, known for showing off his proclivity towards eating objects — light bulbs, shopping carts, and chandeliers. His largest feat was a Cessna 150 aircraft, bringing his lifetime tally of metal (and perhaps mental) mayhem to nine tons.

This perplexing behavior was not just a case of extreme pica (an eating disorder characterized by consuming objects that cannot be digested), but one that shows us that we are often capable of things beyond our comprehension (and yes, some pretty bizarre behavior, too!)

Mr. Eats-All apparently went about his quest with careful and deliberate precision, infusing mineral oil to aid him, and making sure he went bit-by-bit in small, manageable chunks. He apparently knew when-to-say-when, and was adept at knowing his maximum threshold. (Perhaps he was an unsuspecting pioneer of portion control, even).

Like our stomachs, our brains are constantly involved in a process of digestion. We are required to process gargantuan amounts of information, massive changes and constant stimulation — flooding our circuits and leaving us reeling. This can lead to some serious brain indigestion.

Unlike Mr. Eats-All, we can’t manufacture a perfectly controlled system of digesting the myriad of whopper’s that come into play and overload our minds. But there’s still something to learn from this example of culinary chaos:

1. We are capable of digesting difficult things. Even when pierced with life’s stingers, we are wired for resilience and have incredible capacity for healing — even when life delivers blows that puncture our dreams and disrupt our sense of stability and happiness. Life may be tough, but so are we.

2. We need to know our maximum threshold. Each day is filled with a never-ending to-do list. There’s only so much that can be digested within our daily span. Avoid trying to solve all of your problems at once, and instead carve out space to regroup. Know when to say when.

3. We benefit from setting strategic goals. It’s unlikely that we can control the heaping portions of stress we experience — they usually clobber us all at once, creeping over our wall of coping. We can learn to prioritize what needs our attention and break action steps into small bites. Step by step, chunk by chunk, we’ll get there.

4. Progress takes time. Rome wasn’t built in a day. And apparently, the airplane to fly there wasn’t eaten in a day, either. What makes us think we can work through challenges or meet our goals all in one fell swoop? If we rush, we might risk unfavorable outcomes. A sense of urgency can be helpful, but keep expectations realistic.

2015-08-21-1440115811-5489386-Spoonfulofsugar.jpg

We all need a little mineral oil, or as Mary Poppins called for — a spoonful of sugar to make the medicine go down. We all need help with digesting what’s at hand. Search for your remedies. Look around for internal resources (like humor, faith, creativity) and external resources (like trusted friends, colleagues or mentors) to help keep you from chronic brain indigestion. We can’t always change what we have to digest, but can focus on how we digest for greater health and happiness.

What Disney Pixar’s ‘Inside Out’ Film Teaches Us About Embracing All Sides Of Our Emotions

Disney Pixar’s new “emotion” picture, Inside Out is not only another endearing creative masterpiece, it also teaches us some important lessons on the nature of our emotions.

It turns out that our unique tapestry of emotional responses — whether
joy, anger, curiosity, disgust, surprise, sadness, fear, shame or guilt — all serve a distinctive purpose. Even though we might like to eliminate unfavorable emotions, they serve an important role.

The American Psychological Association defines emotion as a “complex feeling state”, impacting nearly all facets of our lives. Our responses are influenced by what we perceive to be “personally significant”. We experience emotions in a wide variety of ways, according to what stage of life we are in, our unique temperament, and how we view ourselves- and the situations we find ourselves in.

2015-06-21-1434849227-4515170-EmotionsandBrain.jpg

Inside Out, while appealing largely to a younger audience, offers sound wisdom we can apply to make sense of our emotions-both at work and at home:

1. Feelings add color to our lives. Life would be boring if our emotions were flat lined. We’d lack passion and zest. The wide range of emotions we are capable of experiencing contribute to our human experience and essence — our personality, mood, behavior and motivation. Yes, emotions can be raw, messy and visceral — but they can also be profound, beautiful, and comforting. They all add dimension and flavor.

2. We don’t always have to think positive. It’s unrealistic to think that we are always going to put an instant positive spin on things. Very often, we may need to buy time to regroup and work through complex emotions. Our tendency to want a quick fix can help us look for solutions, but it can also be a trap that makes us fight ourselves when we think we “should” have already gotten past something and instead find ourselves needing time to regroup and put the pieces together.

3. Emotional contrasts are important. When we’ve experienced difficult emotions, it can help us appreciate the good moments all the more. If we never had to endure rainy days and seasons, we’d have less appreciation for sunny ones once they arrive. In a similar way, it’s what makes us enjoy a break after a long and intensive work period.

4. Emotional states aren’t permanent. Even though we might think we’re forever stuck — feeling states, like weather patterns, are temporary. The winds of change are inevitable. Knowing this can help us learn to appreciate and anchor down the positive moments and ride out the ones that clobber us and bring us to our knees.

2015-06-21-1434849297-2192498-RAINBOW.jpg

5. Difficult emotions can protect us. If given the choice to completely squash feelings like sadness, rage and disgust, our first tendency might be to instantly jump at the chance. This could be detrimental, since our emotions provide us with all sorts of important information. Our fears or apprehensions often serve us well and prevent us from living with reckless abandon.

6. Emotions reflect our deeper values and desires. Feelings reflect what we care about. In the film, Riley, the main character, grappled with difficult emotions associated with her family moving across the country. Her happy memories of childhood were hard to let go of, bringing about great sorrow and frustration. When we’re immersed in sadness or anger during life’s changes, it reflects our desire for closeness, connection, and contentment.

7. All emotions can be catalysts towards growth. When we meet a goal or experience success, the energy propels us to keep striving. When we make a mistake, or have setbacks, even though it can be a tough pill to swallow, the emotions generated can prompt us to take action towards improvement.

Inside Out provides a poignant reminder that when our emotional responses are strong in one area-whether joy or sorrow, we can’t magically switch gears. We also learn that these emotions are intricately connected, and you can’t have one without the other.

We are inevitably going to have powerful responses to our life circumstances. It takes time and effort to sort out our complex emotions and come to terms with change, loss and stressors. We can’t force ourselves to feel a certain way at a given moment, but knowing this can help us remember to make the joyful moments count and recognize that the more unsettling ones can also be useful.

‘Little Ballers’ Documentary Teaches Us That Black Boys Aren’t Monolithic

Different players across the NBA have something in common: they once played basketball with the AAU, aka the Amateur Athletic Union, a non-profit organization that provides sporting activities for kids across the country. One film sheds light on the dreams, challenges, wins and losses of youth in the program.

“Little Ballers,” a 2013 documentary that premieres Wednesday on Nickelodeon, focuses on the New York-based AAU basketball team New Heights as they fight their way to the national championship. Four boys in particular, Judah, Tyriek, Cole and Kevin, pepper in their opinions on basketball and life in general, noting their personal goals of making it to the NBA.

At 11 years old, these boys evoke the raw emotion of childhood innocence, which is counterbalanced by the adults of the movie — including their Coach Billy, current and former NBA players like Carmelo Anthony and Walt Frazier, and cultural pundits such as Travis King and Roland Martin — who stress the idea that dreams also have a layer of reality to them.

In addition to its all-star cast, “Little Ballers” is directed by author Crystal McCrary, who happens to be one of the team moms, and executive produced by recording artist Lupe Fiasco and NBA player Amar’e Stoudemire.

McCrary was just a mom with a camera in her hand when the idea of the documentary blossomed. “I didn’t know where the story was going to go,” the director told The Huffington Post, adding that she’s a “filmmaker, sports fanatic and a lover of children,” which were all factors leading to her telling New Heights’ story.

Throughout filming, McCrary encountered a slew of emotions, including on-court tantrums, locker room tears and, of course, the unabashed boys who tell it like it is. “Since the boys hadn’t had any real disappointments in their 11-year-old lives, they believed they could scale Mount Everest, they believed that they are going to make it to the NBA, despite the fact that the odds are overwhelmingly against them,” she said. “And that’s inspirational.”

However, there are underlying themes within “Little Ballers” that bring up society’s ongoing interaction with black boys and men. The film illuminates the issue of street and gang violence, and how the AAU helps kids avoid dangerous situations, allowing them to make safer decisions.

Chicago Bulls player Joakim Noah’s initiative, the Noah’s Arc Foundation, aims to mentor gang members and encourage them to make better choices for their future. He speaks in the film about the importance of extracurricular activities, which McCrary said was a focal point in the movie. Noah mentioned that there isn’t much for the gang members to do other than inflict violence in their community, and McCrary agreed that any sort of activity provided for inner-city youth outside of school is crucial.

“I’m not one of those people that says basketball replaces education, nor am I trying to sell a pipe dream,” McCrary noted, saying that while basketball is a popular attraction, there are other avenues of expression when it comes to extracurriculars. “So, that could be a chess club, debate team,” she said, adding, “It’s just important to show that there are so many attributes that kids can acquire by being on an organized team.” This includes life skills, healthy lifestyle choices, discipline and structure, all of which can promote a better future when instilled in kids at, say, age 11.

the team

Further, McCrary touches on another overarching tone: the stereotypical notion that black people, especially men and boys, are monolithic characters in America — especially in the social and political climate following the killings of Michael Brown, Trayvon Martin and several others.

New Heights wasn’t just a “black team,” as its members had different backgrounds, but the film mostly focuses on black players and coaches, which has more meaning than just race. “It’s about these four boys that come from diverse family and economic situations,” McCrary said.

One of the kids, Tyriek, lives with his single mother in the gang-ridden Brownsville neighborhood of Brooklyn. McCrary talked about him throughout the conversation. “Typically, when society sees a kid like Tyriek walking down the street in his community, he’s immediately written off as some sort of statistic or some sort of other — so the kid is not destined to achieve,” she said.

ty and mom

However, there’s always more to the story. “Just because you are being brought up in poverty, that doesn’t make you a criminal,” McCrary added. “It also doesn’t mean you’re not brought up in an environment that’s filled with love, just as much as that kid that lives in the suburbs with two parents and a white picket fence, who also is brought up with love.”

More importantly, McCrary felt like the boys’ different upbringings prove that in the face of diversity, there can be common ground. “So, we as people of color in this country come from all different backgrounds and all different family situations, so we’re not monolithic,” McCray said, but the team’s commitment to each other combats stereotype.

“I also found inspiration in the bond that they developed as brothers,” she noted. “For these young men, race, class and culture really meant nothing, but what did mean something was the brotherhood they developed playing together as teammates and getting to know each other off the court.”

“Little Ballers” premieres on Nickelodeon on Feb. 25 at 9 p.m. EST. Check your local listings.
