One Sunday I couldn’t shake a low energy feeling of annoyance. I allowed every little thing my daughter did (or didn’t) do irritate me. I finally said out loud to my husband, “Why am I on such a rampage toward her? She’s a good kid, but I feel so critical of her today.” Hearing my own words sparked an idea. I headed upstairs to her room and kindly asked if she was angry and having negative thoughts about me. She stared at me in disbelief momentarily and then put her head down and slumped her shoulders. I told her that I could feel all the negative energy she was putting out to me and that in order for us to have a good relationship, she needed to somehow find a way to turn those thoughts to positive. She awesomely gets it when I talk energy-stuff to her and by the end of the day, I didn’t feel like I wanted to pounce on her for every little thing she said or did!
Choose Positive, KJ
