I can honestly say that it’s been tough to think “mindfully” in the middle of a chaotic moment, but sometimes I manage to remember and it does immediately shift my perspective. Yesterday, when my daughter was whining about something and I was feeling irritated, I recalled my word and calmed down. My response to her was one of quiet patience and listening and it put both of us in a better mood immediately.
I encourage you all to try this sometime!
