So I have taken the next 2 weeks off to be at home with my school aged kids starting Monday. We are not going away these holidays but I decided I really would love to spend 2 weeks in the home we have but are rarely in! I am worried however that we will all kill each other by the end of the holidays. I have not spent day on end at home just me and the kids since my youngest was born, 5 years ago. Advice? Tips? All appreciated.
Pen to paper answer these questions:
What is the purpose of these 2 weeks holidays for you and your family?
What are the values you want to live over the next 2 weeks?
What are your 3 top priorities?
What do you need to remember?
What matters most right now?
Remember, the kids may want to kill each other, you can control other people, you can manage yourself.
I like to have 3 emotions that drive the day – especially on days when I am with my children to keep me present, calm and loving.
Put this on a piece of paper.
Post it on the fridge door.
Remind yourself, touch stone down, what is the purpose of today, how can I love and connect today?
Have a beautiful holidays my friend, amongst the craziness 😉
