Pick your battles

Hello everyone! I hope you all had an amazing Easter!

Today it felt like I just couldn’t win with my daughter. Every chance she got she was throwing a temper tantrum and just crying. She also chose to not listen all day. It was a very trying and tiring day. 

One of the things I have been trying to work on as a mom is picking my battles. I tend to get stuck in my ways and I freak out a bit. My husband always tells me to pick my battles with my toddler otherwise I’d be yelling and freaking out all day. It’s so true and so hard to do. 

Since I have been focusing on my yoga practice I have learned to take more deep breaths and let things go. Of course it isn’t going to happen overnight. For instance, today I just was not in the mood for my daughter to act up, and Of course she did all day. As parents sometimes we aren’t always right and we will struggle. The one thing I like to remember is tomorrow is another day. Today might have been bad and stressful, but tomorrow doesn’t have to be. 

My intention for tomorrow is to look on the bright side no matter what. If my toddler chooses to throw temper tantrum after temper tantrum, I’m going to take a few (or 10) deep breaths and calmly talk to her (or at least attempt to). 

A great saying is, “It’s a bad day, not a bad life”. I sometimes I have to remind myself that because we do get caught up in the moment and forget that it’s just one day and It could be way worse. 

Thank you for letting me vent a bit of my frustrations and thoughts to you all, I really appreciate it. 

As always, thank you for reading, I hope you all have a magical day/night!
