Let’s be cycle breakers and be part of helping ourselves heal and children learn that they are emotional beings first. Having feeling brains that think can be celebrated. It is our responsibility as adults and caregivers for children to help them understand their feelings because emotional regulation is a skill. We have to practice what we teach. Children learn most from what we do, not what we say. ❤️
Teddy Roosevelt said, “Comparison is the thief of joy.” Measuring backward allows you to focus just on you. It’s a very powerful practice and one I highly recommend. The practical application recipe (PAR) that I would suggest is: After I am in bed, I will write three of my GAINS for today and one GAIN that I hope to achieve the next day.
As I thought about the day, I compared me to myself, and was proud of my accomplishments and who I interacted with. The cover photo was taken last night at the Oceanside pier following a wonderful dinner with friends❤️
