Think…..did you do anything just for yourself today? Read, meet a friend, watch a favorite show, call a bff? A day without a personal break is like a day in JAIL!!!!!!  You aren’t good for anyone or anything if you don’t take time to enjoy each day in a way that is personally satisfying to you–you get grumpy and feel like a martyr.But, it’s not too late to “save” today. Write me back and let me know what you did.

Relationship Tip Of The Week

Ever notice that within a few moments of meeting each other, kids are playing like they’ve been friends their whole lives? It’s because they aren’t self-conscious once they start playing. They aren’t wondering what other kids think of them; they’re absorbed in their play. If we could be consumed with getting to know others (adult play) instead of what kind of impression we’re making, we would find relationships more rewarding and certainly more fun. Have you had your fun today?

How do you stick up for yourself while without alienating the other person? Easy! Tone is everything. Practice saying what you want to get across in the same tone you would use giving directions to a stranger–in other words, level, mature, informational–no emotion-packed words. “I’m upset that you told the Johnson’s our vacation plans when we agreed not to say anything to them.” Then wait for a response. If it’s defensive, stay calm. “It was our understanding, right?”  Sometimes the hardest part is knowing how to start–if you start right and stay calm, the positive energy will calm the other person–or at least, it will keep you calm!

Are you flexible? Can you roll with the punches, bend with the wind? If you can, life will be calmer. Don’t have all the info you need for a report? Need 36 cupcakes by 9:00 a.m.? There is always something that can be substituted or explained and the moment will slip by with no further notice.We need to accept that life doesn’t always work the way we want it to–and when it doesn’t, we just move on and do the best we can. There are enough big problems that we don’t have to create additional ones. Inhale, exhale slowly and let it go.
