Who’s Paying the Price?

Have you had a cruddy day at work recently?  Did something not go your way?  When these disappointments or frustrations happen, who do you take it out on?  People at work or your loved ones that had nothing to do with your Bad DaY?

We can all use the reminder every now and then.  Don’t take out your bad day on the people you love the most, just because they are the ones that you spend the end of your day with.  We can all relate to MoMenTs when we were having a wonderful day and our loved one walked in the door and immediately changed our mood for the worse.

I especially have to ReMemBer this with my kids.  When I am stressed my voice ends up yelling when, on a normal day, I would speak to them in softer words.  They look at me like, “What did I do!?” and deep down I know that they didn’t deserve the treatment I gave.

So whoever it is–spouse, friend, kid, co-worker–try to bite your tongue and let out your frustrations doing something that won’t bring ThEm down (go on a run, pound into a pillow…whatever you can!).  I guess I am writing because I need this reminder more often than I’d like to admit!!

Honestly,

Some Days I Want To…

…and not in the fun “YAY” sort of way.  Yesterday was one of those days.  On the outside I was CaLm, but inside I wanted to shout!   It started with fussy kids, spilling oatmeal on the floor, forgetting we had an appointment that morning and unfortunately spiraled out of control from there.  Sound familiar?

Some days I wonder WhYI try and do what I do.  The inevitable always happens…the kids spill juice on newly cleaned carpet or I get swamped with orders the week my husband is out-of-town.  Some days F E E L like I can’t catch a break!

To survive days like these I have to remind myself I am normal.  We all have rough days and despite our attempts at staying PoSiTiVe, don’t always end how we hoped.  Luckily those days don’t last forever, and when they do, I don’t have to be so hard on myself.  These days are NORMAL so give yourself a break!
