Sometimes we get put into situations that feel World shattering. Accidents, disagreements, and just downright bad days. I’ve had a lot of bad days since becoming a parent and I don’t see them stopping anytime soon. But, I do feel like finding the positive solution in those situations makes those moments not seem so heavy.
What about you? Have you ever had a bad day as a parent? Think about it, what was the most recent bad day you have had as a parent. It’s kind of like biting into a lemon, right? Sour, bitter, and tough to get through the skin.
Now, think of a moment within that situation that was positive. Were you able to get through that lemon moment? Did you learn anything or grow as a person? For me, finding the positive solution or aspect of that moment makes it not so sour.
Life as a Parent
In life, we all have moments that can drag you down and feel completely overwhelming. As parents we feel like we must put on a brave face. That’s not what I mean at all. There is strength in being vulnerable within difficult moments. It shows our children how to be comfortable in their reality.
Be vulnerable and open on your bad days but find a way to make life out of those lemon moments. Let your emotions flow and then find an opportunity. Take that lemon moment, that bad day, and squeeze the positive out of it. You might just change your whole life if you change your mindset. Plus, little eyes are watching, why not show them how to make the best out of life?
