Do you ever have one of those days where you just wake up feeling like a grouch? I know I do.
For no reason I can ever pin point, I just have days where I am off, grumpy and irritable. I feel defeated before my day even begins.
It’s not often but there are certainly those “days” and they come unannounced.
I’m an emotional stuffer by nature, meaning I tend to just push issues and conflicts down until I can no longer ignore them. This doesn’t help my attitude by any means because what happens is that instead of addressing the issues I let them build up until I explode which is neither fun or helpful to my family.
I was reminded recently that I, as the wife and mother, tend to set the tone for my entire family. When my attitude stinks causing me to be a big grouch, the energy in our home also tends to feel negative and irritable.
Our children are watching us too, modeling how we handle conflicts and emotions.
When I let my anger explode, I’m teaching my children that it’s OK to have an angry outburst and not deal with our emotions.
This is not OK nor is it Biblical.
So what can we do when we feel grouchy, irritable, impatient and in need of a serious attitude adjustment?
Today I’m over on Intentional By Grace sharing 8 things to do when you need an attitude adjustment. You can read the full post here.
