Parenting is not always an easy task. In fact, it’s often not an easy task. Still, whether you are a parent, or you think back on when you were parented, it’s a lesson worth remembering.
Almost every morning, I wake up and head to my meditation mat. And every morning, I say the same thing.
“Today I will be calm. Today I will not yell. Today I will breathe deeply. Today I will not let a three-year-old infuriate me. Today I will be calm.”
And every evening, when my husband returns home and takes over, I say the same thing.
