I did my best to explain the principles and the outcomes of emotion coaching in our family. One of the ladies said, "Your home is so peaceful."
She doesn't know I have this blog called 'Parent's Peace'. She doesn't know that my main goal in life is to create a peaceful life and a peaceful home! I was thrilled when she said that. Having peace is my greatest pursuit!
We don't have to force ourselves to all play the same note all the time. That would make a boring song! We can appreciate the range of notes we each are playing in and appreciate each other's contributions, like a smooth jazz.
It is easier said than done sometimes! It takes great effort to be patient and tolerant of the notes others are playing while being true to our own range of notes. But that is our goal, and when we hit it right, it makes beautiful music.
