I had to catch myself this morning.
The morning routine went flawlessly, the kids are organised, hubby has been for a run, there were no accidents in the night, I had an extra sleep in till 6am due to a bad nights sleep, but everything went really well.
Maybe because I didn’t sleep well, or maybe because of my own high standards, but I did have to catch myself from trying to find more jobs for the kids to do this morning, instead of just being happy and congratulate them on getting everything done so peacefully, and efficiently.
This is a trap that we can fall into, where we don’t expect everything to go well, and so we don’t trust it, and maybe we try and dramatize an otherwise successful morning.
My Wednesday Musing is:
Where are you trying to dramatize something in your life?
It’s an interesting question to ask of yourself, and you may be surprised when you take a step back, that maybe things aren’t so dire as you may think.
Let me know if anything comes up for you.
