Well, this is just a funny coincidence. Today's Daily Groove addresses the house cleaning post I just wrote.
THE DAILY GROOVE ~ by Scott Noelle
:: Remember Your Purpose ::
Imagine... A lovely, sunny day. You're alone in a grassy field, kicking a ball around. You have no goal but to enjoy yourself -- pure fun!
Some friends show up and join you in play. Someone suggests a game of soccer, so you establish boundaries, goals, and teams. This focuses and intensifies the shared excitement and fun.
Soon, without even noticing, you get so involved in the game that you forget why you were playing in the first place. You become so afraid of losing that the *fun* is lost.
But then you remember, "Oh, yeah... This was supposed to be FUN!" and you're back in your groove, instantly! You feel even more empowered as you realize you transformed the game entirely from within -- unconditionally.
Today, let go of any worries that prevent you from being fully present with your kids, and remember that parenthood is supposed to be fun.
That's what Nature intended... And so did you!
