I feel like I’m better at knowing when i’m reaching my ‘breaking point’, especially with regards to my children and that point where I need to do something before I lost my patitence.
Though as I thought about writing this in my head I felt like breaking point are the wrong words since, it suggests that it’s a one time thing and not something that happens on a semi-regular basis.
I felt it today with the kids, being away in the hotel for a couple of days was nice, it really was but it got a bit much at the end.
What to do is when I notice it’s happening is a work in progress.
These two links popped up though that felt relevant：
- Zen Habits - 8 Practices to Get Still and Calm
- this list of things by Hope Hall when she starts to feel ‘overwhelmed or stressed or lose my center’
From the latter link is this line, which reasonated a whole lot because it says what I’ve been trying to do recently.
Try to put how you want to feel ahead of what you want to be or even do.
