Pause Before You Pounce: Day 4

Today I will not comment when a family member does something around the house in a way I would not have chosen (unless of course it is one of those rare cases where it is either dangerous, costly or damaging to property, etc…). I will only comment  to thank them for performing the task or praise them for their unique, creative way of doing it.

  1. This is a really hard one for me and I only have one grown man living in my space. I mean, our home. I try so hard to not criticize when he does something wrong (meaning NOT the way I would do it, which is, of course, perfectly), but sometimes I just snap and read him the riot act over something insignificant. I’m going to try to follow your lead and not pounce!

    • So the confession of the day is that while I have been pausing well with the children, I am not quite able to be so gentle with the adults that I love. Sigh. I guess I will be working on that next week.
