It's week 2 of the Gentleness Challenge over at Women Living Well. I am so glad I decided to jump on board with this challenge (read about it here) because I really have remembered my promise in the heat of things! (Although not always and have much improving to do. BUT! I will say, I have done better BECAUSE of this challenge!)
New this week she suggests we whisper when we feel like screaming and although I have already done that before, I def need to do it more! And not thru clenched teeth. It is a great tip! Courtney gives us two verses to remember and I am going to write out and commit them to memory too.
I loved her analogy of a tree that clings onto dead leaves all thru the winter until the new growth pushes them off in the Spring. I love trees and I love analogies. And as a mom, I'm holding on to dead things like anger and control and definitely want to shed them as I grow!
Man that was a good one! So encouraged!
