I will be coming back to this treasure of a comment again and again. You made me cry in the best way. Is it just me wanting to be healthy but too tired to get up and move even though I’ve not done a thing yet this morning? Flawed, but okay, Doing the best we can with what we’ve got. And we’ll get through it together. Mondays can be hard life can be hard but knowing we are not the only one who feels the things we feel somehow lightens the burden and provides a glimmer of hope.
Acknowledge this increment of time will never come again and then savor it. Although we may fall short and make mistakes today, we can do one thing well: We can listen. We can look up when she walks into the room. We can look into his eyes before he gets out of the car. We can listen in a non-judgmental and supportive way by nodding and smiling. We may not have all the answers, but we can listen – and that is significant. Because when it comes to building up a human being, unconditional attention is as important as unconditional love.

After realizing my son is not a morning person and rushing him to get ready when he’s still sleepy will never end well, we discovered that waking him up 30 minutes early to watch a cartoon with zero pressure to start moving was enough to allow him to wake up at his own pace. This helps us reduce the potential for bad mornings before they happen. I know someone like that at my house! Thanks for sharing that insightful tip. Love them by their book is what I call that and it helps so much when we can see our way may not be the best way for them!

I could tell she wanted me to jump on the bandwagon. I said, well, do what you think you need to do. Well, it looks like the homeless person is just taking a rest and will probably move on soon. Thank you for this reminder today. I’ve never seen anything like that in this neighborhood, and I am wondering if I should call the police. How would it feel to be on the other side?
From personal experience, I knew her intentions were good perhaps thinking her commentary would help her son fit in or become more responsible. But not only were the corrections ineffective, but they were also driving the teen away from a mother who loved him dearly. That’s where they were now far apart. The mother wanted to know if she could bridge the gap between them after years of driving him away. I stopped chipping away at my daughter’s spirit eight years ago when she began picking her lip until it bled and the look of defeat took permanent residence in her eyes.

Someday they’ll brighten a corner of the world like only they can, leaving it better than it was before. Each girl has come and accomplished what she set out to do, and this little corner of the world is better after she leaves At that moment, I am thankful my heart urges me to be quiet to step back to refrain from changing the beautiful wiring, the unique fiber, that makes them who they are.
Makes me feel hopeful. I did not scold nor berate him. I stood by him in court, but I also let him bear the punishment of lawyer fees. He grew up, accepted his state awarded punishment and adapted by becoming risk manager for his fraternity (meaning he was the assigned one to remain sober for dealing with any authorities coming to the fraternity). I was so proud of him! I am so thankful to read this hopeful story and know you and your son are a part of this world.

I could see the infraction was Saturday night live More Cowbell shirt. It was a learning experience just like my speeding warning. Taking the lead from my dad, I refrained from making accusations, badgering, questioning, and shaking my head in shame. She was beating herself up enough. She didn’t need me to add to her pain. What she did need was for me to be her ally her confidant her encourager. Because the truth is, my child didn’t have to tell me of this mistake.

A smile for someone who is not smiling even when you don’t feel like smiling. It’s contagious. Give it a try. And mostly be kind to yourself. Give yourself some slack. Remember how far you’ve come and how much easier it is to get to where we’re going when we’re together. And mostly be kind to yourself, Ashley said. That’s always been a hard one for me. But at age 42 I wanted to believe it wasn’t too late to be kind to myself. Although old habits die hard, I decided to try. I stopped beating myself up over past failures.

This is beautiful, and exactly what I need to read to my sweet, but divided third-grade class tomorrow! May I share it with them? Such a beautiful post. Just what I needed today. My school life would have been a whole lot different had I had someone advocating for me like that beautiful and brave girl did for her life teammates. I signed up for Soul Shift but then was very ill and never connected up. Can I activate this next time, please? Thank you So much for all your encouraging posts.
