This ttwd is sometimes hard and sometimes easy. For us, we have really changed the way we live. We put each other first. We are generous with one another. Jack is patient, kind and easy going. He does want my submission. He wants my words kind and my attitude in keeping with his expectations.
Things go along smooth and easy. Then my attitude sours and my mood becomes sullen. Jack isn't happy and he gives me a warning to get back on track. I struggle sometimes because I want to please him and be submissive. At those times, he asks me, "Are you showing me your submission?".
I search for the day to day ways I can be submissive. When Jack leaves and when he comes home, I meet him as he comes in the door. Rather than just calling out a good-bye or hello, I go to him. He has noticed this and has complimented me. We act with more politeness. We genuinely like one another much more as we make our way down this ttwd path. Approaching a second anniversary, he opens the doors and holds chairs. He makes me laugh.
Yes, I have developed one not so good habit .......... mumbling under my breath when something is not to my liking. He does not hear me and I fuss when he asks me to repeat my words. This habit is quickly becoming a spankable one. I am trying to catch myself before we get that far. I will keep you posted.
My passenger seat driving advice is still a point of annoyance to Jack. I always want to leave for where we are going far too early to counter the horrible traffic we will encounter. Easy going Jack does not like that at all. I am working on it, but feel still that my two cents are worth something. Jack usually counters with the knowledge that my advice is worth a sore bottom.
The ways to be submissive are right there in my day. Sometimes I do these things automatically and sometimes, I miss them completely. I am learning.
The big one, the stumbling block, to my submission is still my interrupting. It is very hard not to do and I always stumble. I know it does reflect disrespect and shows the listener that my voice is more important. Couple that voice with some sass and some yelling and a spanking is almost a guarantee. I have learned that I do interrupt and I am trying to do less of it. Am I making progress? I really am afraid to even ask Jack his opinion on that subject.
My phone, like yours, is a most useful and fun tool. However my phone has caused me to be spanked! Jack is fine with texting and checking phone messages, but not when he is talking to me. Lesson learned, bottom sore. Phones are trouble sometimes. We have all been there.
I wear the lacy lingerie Jack loves even though it ends up on the floor. I wear the colors he likes and dress the way he says makes me look good. He is my best fashion consultant. He is generous with my shopping adventures and I try to please him.
I would like to collect your ideas on the way you show your submission. Yes, we submit to spankings and submit to loving making at the times when we could let it go. I know those things and do them with grace. I want to hear from you on how you show submission. Comment away!
