When things get hectic, like it has been for the last few weeks, I get super focused and don’t rest and then get cranky. With the holidays coming I have shows and orders that keep me working long hours and when something doesn’t go the way that I’d planned… I have a little pout party and get even crankier.
So this week I had to have a talk with myself and say “get over yourself Shawn”… and then knew that I needed to repeat the message of this piece, to myself over and over.
Be humble and kind.
Humbleness is gratitude and any time I reflect on what I am grateful for it makes me thankful, not grumpy. It always changes my attitude. I also needed to remind myself to be kind, it’s so easy to be curt and not be courteous to those around me.
I hope that if you find yourself getting busier and maybe even a little cranky …. try some humbleness, some gratitude and remember to speak kind words.
