Getting Your Own Back

February 25, 2018

 

I used to get so frustrated when I would cook a nice meal and my kids complained about it.

 

I would feel defeated if Ryan had other things on his mind when he got home from work and forgot to mention how clean the house looked.

 

I felt hurt if I did something nice for someone and they didn't seem to appreciate it with as much gusto and praise as I was hoping they would.

 

Then one day I realized that I am the best person to praise me when I do something awesome. I don't have to wait for others to do it for me.

 

"Good job on getting the laundry all folded, Sara. You are a rock star!"

 

"Dinner was healthy AND delicious (even though the kids hated it). You go girl!"

 

"Today was a hard day and you did the best you could. Way to go, mama!"

 

It sounds a little cooky talking to myself that way sometimes, but it totally works.

 

And if no one else happens to notice all the great things I managed to accomplish (because, you know, their world doesn't ALWAYS revolve around ME), I noticed.

 

And I complimented me.

 

Any other kind words are just icing on the cake.
