Are You a Middle Age Swinger?

by Sonny Side Up

I just realized my husband and I are swingers. After a very hectic week, my husband and I went to the park to see a sunset. We sat on a bench swing and both started moving our legs so we could sway back and forth. In the peace of the moment, I realized our relationship was like the swing. When one of us no longer felt like moving our legs, the other worked a little harder to keep us moving. When we were both are in sync, it was so easy to sway back and forth. If our legs got tired, we found that we could push off the tree with our arms and keep us in motion (sometimes you have to be creative). But, if we both stopped moving, the swing gradually stopped and we both just sat there wondering what  we were doing sitting still.

Wow, what a simple but interesting realization. Healthy relationships take constant attention to keep them alive and moving forward. There are times when one person needs a break and the other has to pick up the slack, times when you are tired of the routine and need to find another creative way to keep things moving and then there are the times when you both work together, encourage one another and energize each other enough that you can coast for a while and enjoy life together.

I encourage you and your partner to become swingers, it’s especially important for the health and wellness of couples as you both enter midlife together. A quality relationship is made up of couples who desire to give to each other.
