I’m having a hard time writing this post as the husband pissed me off this morning. I’m not going to get into it, this isn’t the place, but this weekend’s quote is relevant not only to this morning’s situation but so many in my life, including weight loss.
"My response is my responsibility."
Since reading that line, every time I’ve gotten angry, stressed, sad, whatever, it has popped into my head. I feel a bit like George Costanza’s Dad with the whole "Serenity Now!" thing…
…but much calmer and a little more in control. :)
So next time I find myself snapping when the husband acts like a jerk OR yelling when some guy cuts me off during rush hour OR mindlessly shoving bread in my mouth because the toddler is stressing me out at a restaurant, I will TRY to remember that my response to any situation is my responsibility.
