:: No Problem! ::
Having a "bad parenting day"?
Whatever you're stressing about -- your child won't stop whining... you're way behind on the laundry...
the baby nursed "all" night long... you yelled at the kids *again*... etc., etc. -- remember there are two components to every problem:
1. The actual condition
2. Your *belief* that it IS a problem
In other words, you don't *have to* perceive the condition to be wrong or bad.
Would a baby see your mountain of dirty laundry as a problem?
They haven't been trained (yet) to pass judgment on Reality, so they don't see the problems we see.
Well, if a baby can do it, you can, too! :-)
Today, try letting go of the idea that conditions "should" be different than they are.
"No problem... It is what it is."
But don't confuse acceptance with defeat.
