A dose of inspiration

Just when I thought this book has addressed almost everything except the concerns of a new mother, I run into this.

I see many parents, particularly mothers with small children, often frustrated in their desire to accomplish a lot because all they seem to do is meet the needs of little children all day. Remember, frustration is a function of our expectations, and our expectations are often a reflection of the social mirror rather than our own values and priorities.

You can subordinate your schedule to those values with integrity. You can adapt; you can be flexible. You don’t feel guilty when you don’t meet your schedule or when you have to change it.

And “adapt” is how I roll with life these days. Just a little reminder that I am on the right track.

Such a brilliant book! If only I can organize my life according to the suggestions in the book, I would be golden!

But for now, baby steps, literally and figuratively.
