I have been saying "let it go" a lot over here lately. Mostly to my middle son who tends to be a bit uptight. I think the song makes it easier for him to hear.
Number one is so my number one two, because I tend to want to say yes to everything and then totally take on more then I can. And loved the "Let It Go" reference to Frozen. My girls know all the words to that song and definitely on of their favorite movies, so totally put a smile on my face this morning :)
You timing is impeccable. After such a rough morning with the girls today, I needed to read this. Having said that, I now feel guiltier than I did (lol). But the reminder was very much needed. Thank you so very much!!
I definitely agree with you about saying please! I expect my kids to say it, and then so often when I tell them what to do I forget to add "please!"
I love your list, Lisa and can completely relate to so many of the items you listed! The one, however, that stood out the most to me was: "You Have My Undivided Attention." LIke you, I need to give others my undivided attention more than I've been doing in recent months. Bill (my husband) will be telling me something - some story he wants to share with me - but my mind is focused on my next blog post or my To-Do list for the day while he's talking and my ears are only half-listening to him. I can remember years and years ago when I used to complain that he didn't talk enough. Now he does and he deserves my full attention. So glad you included that in your list. Thank you! :)
I almost came back today! My post is about being squirrely, among other things. Guess that shows me, a week behind. :) I love this prompt, too!
I am so in tune with many of your 10. Although, I have no problem saying, "no" to volunteering, even though I have a good friend on the PTA who stalks me, and I have no problem saying "yes" to one more glass of wine and 20 more minutes of T.V. I think maybe I should reverse these two...but then I'll have to volunteer. Well, maybe just occasionally...
I love your prompt for this Tuesday Ten. Some great things on your list - I think I need to remember the "Please" one more often especially with my husband and boys.
I get too caught up on little things that, in the bigger scheme, really don't matter. That's when I have to tell myself to let it go! It does help to have the chorus of that song start playing in my brain! :-)
Thanks Janine! I said yes so much that I crashed and burned! I learned that hard way that I HAVE to say no sometimes. I still feel guilty when I do, though!
Aw! We all have those mornings! Say the last one a few extra times this afternoon and it will all bee just fine!
Yes! We have to practice what we preach~
Thanks, Marcia! It's hard to give anything or anyone our undivided attention because there seems to be so many other things pulling on us these days. It's important, though!
HA! Well, this one will be open through Friday if you want to make your list and link up. If not, maybe next week!!! :-)
Ha! Don't reverse them too much! :-)
Thanks Kim! I catch myself barking orders all the time and need to remember to give the the courtesy I expect in return.
I just brought this up at dinner the other night! We had a bit of trouble with the "I" because I don't think everything you say needs to be inspiring. I like your idea of changing it to "intelligent" because my kids talk a lot of nonsense!!
I could definitely stand to say "You have my undivided attention." It's so easy to get busy and feel like you're being pulled in so many directions that you CAN'T devote that time to someone else... but you can. For a bit at least. Thank you for the reminder and the wonderful list :)
Thank you, too! I agree that we are pulled in many directions. It's hard to focus, but it's important! :-)
Agreed! Let's start a movement. Oh wait, you start the movement I'll support it. Thanks for hooking up to the Hump Day Hook Up
