anger + patience #hulkmom

Alright, it's confession time. I've been super quick to anger with my kids lately. I'm talking kid crying on an airplane annoyed. My frustration leaves my body in such a prompt manner that you would think I had attended a three day Master Class taught by The Hulk.

I have been the polar opposite of patient.

One thing I have learned is that if I am feeling this way, someone out there is too.

Like most, my human response is to blame it on my schedule or lack of sleep. I could easily yell to the masses all that I have going on but, I'm going to try my best to not undo the work I've been so diligently doing.

I've learned a lot over the past few years - and I know myself well enough (now) to say, "Hey Cal. You're not present", or "You idiot, you've learned this lesson already," but alas, I still find myself in these situations from time to time.

Wasn't it Alexander Pope who said, "To err is divine"? Guys, I totally googled that. I didn't know Alexander Pope. Let's be real.

We all have a ton going on, and sometimes we forget to slow down and be present. Throw in the fact that the holiday season is upon us, and some of us are doomed before we even get started.

2020 is going to be busy and prosperous. I am going to grow in ways I can't even imagine. I am going to be taking risks and not just climbing mountains, but moving them. I have work to do. But right now, at this moment, all I need to do is be here.

Show up in your life and trust the timing. It's all any of us can do.

Your present moment deserves your undivided attention.

Other things that I mumble to myself and project onto my children:

and for your feed...
