But I’m too tired to move off the couch.
But I’m too distracted thinking about all the other junk on my mind.
If I’d given in to these BUTs I would have missed out on this joyful moment of sharing a delicious (play dough) snack in the tent with Zoe.
I’m not saying that I always get in the tent, nor am I saying you always should. But I like to notice and wonder what happens when we dial up the connected moments just a bit, and challenge our busy, grown up, sensible excuses for missing out on connection.
Questions for you to ponder:
🤔 When did you last say NO to joining in with something with your child (or your client/student) that might have led to fun connection?
🤔 Was you reason for saying NO a valid one, looking back?
🤔 What might have happened if you went with your child’s idea? What is the best that could have happened? What is the worst that could have happened?
🤔 How can you remember to try more YES to connection and push past the BUTs more this week?
