I happened upon this lovely new blog which immediately spoke to me : It’s all about some chick – a mother of 2, my age-ish, wife, human being, shoulder length hair in her photo – see the parallels? Well she embarked on a quest for self-reliance, physical and emotional strength! I felt an immediate affinity towards this idea, so I’ve not only subscribed but I reckon I’ll start at the beginning and when something she or somebody else has to say strikes a chord with me, I’ll try to incorporate that into my life.
Slow and steady wins the race! (I’m good at that – starting slowly… sloth-like, if you will … sometimes so slowly it’s immensely difficult to recognise I’ve even started at all)! This week’s goal:
“STARTING TODAY, I AM GOING TO DO SOMETHING DIFFERENTLY!”
At the office : I’m going to take the stairs instead of using the elevator! Nuff said!
At home : I’m going to talk less! I think my kids will respond better to a mother who is clear and concise as opposed to a long-winded nag-bag who is prone to long soliloquiy’s. Nobody really listens when all you always do is talk, talk, talk, talk, talk! I’m going to try and use single words to get my kids to do what I’d like them to do! I’ll let you know how that works for me – apparently it’s a recognised parenting technique – let’s hope my kids recognise it! 🙂
