Potty coaching my center child is an expertise I’ll by no means forget. In truth, she was the youngest and best one of my kids to perform this feat. But she was additionally the most memorable.
You see, we had been practicing all day. And by nightfall, she was over it.
In fact, in protest, she screamed the most blood curdling sound I’ve ever heard.
My husband walked away in a daze. (he whispered “that was terrifying.” haha)
But, when I heard her, I thought “that’s how I really feel sometimes too, honey. Let it out.”
In our society, it feels like we’re supposed to be perfect. There’s one factor wrong with us if we’re not happy and positive all the time.
Like life’s supposed to be easy.
But that’s so removed from the truth. If you need to do anything worth doing, whether or not it’s having a baby, going for a job a little out of your reach, running a race, or in my daughter’s case, potty training, things get hard.
It doesn’t imply you don’t do them. It means you scream (figuratively or literally🤣). And then transfer ahead even when you need to quit.
Because the good stuff…the sense of freedom, accomplishment, and joy. Well, that’s on the opposite side friend.
