* HEADS UP! The fully functioning version of this blog won’t be running until late 2014. Go ahead and read on, but know that this site is in its very rough stages. Come back soon for a better read 🙂
Once upon a time I’d notice miserable parents and swear I’m never going to be like that when I have kids!
Then I had kids. And I started acting like the bitchy mom and wife I swore I’d never be.
If we don’t look after ourselves, we become stressed-out and bitter. Then we criticize, get impatient, and act mean to those we love. But when we’re peaceful and content, we’re more patient, kind and creative. It’s a win/win for ourselves and our families.
The idea behind this blog is to share simple, immediate ways to have more joy and less stress with our spouses, kids, and selves. I’ll share my ideas. You share yours. It can be as simple as choosing a time to end your “shift” at home, or setting the dinner table in the morning to make your evening more peaceful.
In the meantime, may the ideas here stimulate a better and more joyful life with your family.
