Stuff Goes Wrong

Brave Writer

Look for the good—it’s there, underneath the muddy shoes, next to the hidden math book that you can never find, behind the eyes of your tired emotional teen, inside where you can be gentle with yourself.

Stuff goes wrong. It’s part of the deal. What we can do is trust that underneath that momentary detour from productivity is the good.

Reset by finding the person you love. Be gentle with yourself too since it’s easy to take the blame.

Instead, take the invitation. Reframe your vision of your child when you see:

  • mischief,
  • sadness,
  • or challenge.

It’s okay if you call today a wash and look for it tomorrow. There’s plenty of time.

Be good to you.
