How’s 2014 starting for you? The “two chicks and the old lady” are doing good :-). I think we’ve made a vow to not always show up ready for an argument.This philosophy is definitely helping the house be peaceful, and our blood pressure nice and controlled. It’s the simple pleasures that make life worth living :-).
I wish everyone could adopt this practice. There definitely would be less misunderstandings and fights in the world. There are so many other things to focus on in life, who has the time to focus on the things or people who bring us down. I rather spend time laughing, and creating memories that will sustain us during the hard times. When you’re a caregiver that can be hard to remember sometimes. But, I’m definitely making a pledge this year to keep this first in all of my interactions. Negative people and situations are an energy/spirit drain. Don’t let anyone “drain” you. Respect is never earned from an argument. Speak your mind, but maintain your peace. The right people will be there, and the negative will fall away.
Stay focused on the journey, and take it one day at a time. Until we meet again!
