A mother with a hectic lifestyle has transformed her marriage & # 39; by adopting a simple mantra that she repeats every morning.
Journalist Felicity Harley had found work pressure and taking care of three young children had taken her toll for her marriage to an Australian rules footballer.

& # 39; I can sometimes be difficult to marry, especially on the weekend & # 39 ;, wrote Harley, who is editor of Whimn on a Kidspot blog.
& # 39; The two days of the week that you have to live your best life, I spend 33 pairs of socks washing; wipe off bad smells from the tiles around the toilet; clean up the messy kitchen tops of paper. & # 39;
She has been married to Australian colleague Tom Harley, a professional Aussie rules footballer, since 2008, but the little things in life were worn away in their relationship.
& # 39; In the course of all that hassle with the household, I get more and more afraid and then I keep silent. By that I don't mean talking to dad, & she added.

After reaching a low point, she revealed that a friend had suggested watching a podcast from a famous therapist, which would change her life.
The therapist in question? An Esther Perel, a 61-year-old relationship expert with more than 20 million views on her videos and a New York Times bestseller to her name.
Mama-to-three Harley praised Perel for her expertise and said it changed the way she looks at her family and relationships
During one of her TED conversations, Perel said: & # 39; The survival of the family depends on the happiness of the couple.
& # 39; In fact, it's about achieving them [your goals] by investing the time, patience, and space needed by our partners. & # 39;
She also listened to the author's relationship-changing podcast. Where do we start?
Mama-to-three Harley praised Perel for her expertise and said it has changed the way she looks at her family and relationships.
& # 39; Her [Esther & # 39; s] hours of podcast wisdom can be summarized in a few sentences: marriage is damn hard, but every day is new and fresh and can be sweeter, & # 39; said Harley.
& # 39; You are the & # 39; fly-on-the-wall & during her [Esther] client's therapy sessions that cover everything from infidelity to intimacy, sex and romance. It has actually changed how I act in my marriage
& # 39; So now every morning, especially Saturday, I repeat my new mantra – & # 39; it's up to me to sweeten my marriage & # 39;, & # 39; she said.
Harley joked that while husband Tom may never be the one who & # 39; the banana or the woe & # 39; cleans up, he does get her a cup of coffee to wake up in the morning.
& # 39; And for that I am eternally grateful, & # 39; she said.
