Happy Mom Tip: Catch Yourself

Happy Mom Tips
By Rivkah Caroline

Catch Yourself

We are so quick to criticize ourselves and others. 

Use that same lightning fast "why didn't they..." that comes to mind and use it to praise yourself and others. 

The same brain that mentally critiques our co-worker for not handing in time-sensitive information can also praise the co-worker who filled the paper in the copy machine. 

It's really empowering to get caught doing something right. Try it on yourself.

Such a good point! One of my Rebbetzins at seminary mentioned that it's easier for us ladies to focus on the negative instead of the positive. It's so worth it, though, when we remember to look at the good!
