Patience: Remember How Small They Are

Today’s great tip was found on a site called Remind yourself how small they are and how much you love them.

We all know how angry they can make us, but if we can just get a fraction of a second to stop and realize that they are simply so small. Physically, they are still so little. Emotionally, they’re not capable of being in control all of the time.

Something personal that has impacted me was the death of a friend’s toddler daughter. I can’t count the times in the past year that I’ve been to the point of losing my temper, then I look in my daughter’s eyes and think about some of the alternatives. It makes me grateful that she is here to anger me and drive me crazy.

How are you doing with the patience challenge?
