In anticipation of a major event, important task, crucial appointment…what have you, we most often assume that we are going to be stressed beyond belief or that Murphy’s Law will rear its ugly head once again.
The list of catastrophes are ever growing in your mind prior to the day of importance. The night before… forget it… you’re lucky if you get any sleep at all. And for what? Because we have so little faith in the behavior of our children that we are blind to the optimism of the world? Yep!
Well, take a chill pill! We’ve all heard it before but have selectively chosen not to hear it. Seriously, what ever it is.. coffee, alcohol, chocolate, yoga… your pick.. take it, do it, relax! Our kids have it in them to handle more than we are aware of. They WILL surprise you and you will have wasted hours/days of worry for absolutely nothing.
Life happens and we all have the ability to roll with the punches. We can learn a thing or two from our kids. Go with the flow and let things fall into place naturally.
We’re all in it for the long haul! Better to loosen up and breathe easy, your family will thank you for it.
