…and preschool’s done for_ever!
It was the toughest phase of my adult life – deeply satisfied at the end!
Teachers make a HUGE difference!
I learned so much about little kids, myself and relationships from applying their advice across my entire life.
I have a lot of empathy for the couples that don’t make it through the preschool years. If it hadn’t been for one woman, in particular, we would have struggled. She was our guide for SEVEN years!
Don’t expect family life to be easy. Again and again, I simplified my life to increase my emotional capacity.
Racing, hard training, consulting projects, even sad movies… anything that would tap me… went by the wayside.
Strangely, for how awful I told you it was, I have pleasant memories. A great lesson for the rest of my life.
If I don’t act on my negative experiences then they flow away.
The other day my eldest asked me why I don’t yell at people. Already, she knows some yellers – sometimes she’s one of the them.
I said, “Sometimes I want to yell but I use my mind-strength to avoid yelling.”
Truth be told, I do raise my voice and I’ve been known to growl.
But I’m improving and you’ll struggle to get much of a rise out of me with personal angst.
In addition to lots of love, constant forgiveness is another gift from my kids.
