Gratitude to the Rescue!
I’m running late. I forgot something. I have to go back to my house. I trip over a toy I asked my son to put away. I finally make it outside and realize I forgot my umbrella and need to go back again because it’s starting to rain. And I have a ton of things I need to get done today. The holidays are here and I have too much o my plate! UGH!
What’s a girl to do?
Whenever I feel this frustrating scenario overtaking me, I make a point to stop myself in my tracks. Even though it will slow me down even more, it’s worth it. I take a few deep breaths. I close my eyes. And I think of a few things I am grateful for. Although I am in a rush, I allow myself to really feel how lucky and how blessed I am, even in that moment of frustration, anger, and stress.
And voila! Just like that I am ME again.
Then hop on over to my Facebook page and let me know how it goes!
