Best of Our Blogs: June 26, 2012

It’s Tuesday. Do you know where your head is?

It can be so easy to go from worried to overwhelmed. Maybe it all started with a harmless misunderstanding, an unintentional wrongdoing, an emotional outburst built up from stress and bad coping tools. Whatever it is, it’s left you raw, dried up and vulnerable. That’s it. You have nothing left to give.

It’s okay. Maybe it’s just a sign you need to stop doing what you’re doing and tune back into yourself. Maybe it’s an opportunity to do some self-forgiving. Maybe this is your moment to realize that you’re not supposed to be perfect, that just because you’re not “normal” like you’re neighbor, your FB “friend” or your co-worker, it’s okay. Because truthfully, no one’s really normal anyway. And the best ones are far from it.

This week our posts will help remind you of that. You’ll remember that it’s okay if you don’t always get it right, that life often gives us second chances. And that the most important thing is to be aware of what you’re feeling, what’s not working and then quickly turn it around.  Plus, you’ll learn fun ways to get your kids to keep reading over the summer and discover why your communication may need some tuning up.
