I don't have time to write a long, drawn out blog post about parenting today. I have seven children and one of them is making my life very difficult right now. They take turns, and this will pass. He's a great kid, he's been through a lot, and I love him. But in the difficult moments, those things are not easy to remember...
Those who follow me on social media know I've started the Miracle Morning. It has helped restore my sanity, especially being stuck indoors with seven children in this Phoenix heat all summer.
Affirmations are a big part of the Miracle Morning. These were new to me, and at first I felt really silly about it. But they really have helped me so much with my business as well as staying focussed on healthy eating.
As I struggle with my teen's defiance the past couple of weeks, I find myself wanting an affirmation to refer to when things feel impossible. I searched but couldn't find one that fit, so I created my own. I printed this out and keep it in my back pocket. I'm finding myself reading it several times a day, and as hokey as it sounds, it really helps.
