I’m Sick Of Being The Parent Who Yells
I’m surrounded by a stack of self-development books like The Little Book of Lykke by Meik Wiking about the secrets of the happiest people in the world, How to be a Badass Everyday by Jen Sincero and Dying To Be Me by Anita Moorjani, how her near death experience changed her outlook on life.
Picking up a book each day is a huge part of my journey. Over the years, they’ve helped me recognize negative behaviors in myself. Those “aha” moments led to a spiritual and personal path; unaware what was building inside me.
My daily rituals are centered around calming down, relaxing and grounding. The focus is on love, happiness and joy by taking anger, blame and worry out of the picture.
Practice What You Learn
During the day, when the kids are at school, I’m in a good place. I get done everything on my lists and feel amazing about what I’ve accomplished.
Then POP!!! My bubble bursts and here comes reality. Personal growth is learned during my alone time, but is practiced when the rest of the family come home. Let’s just say I excel at the learning part.
