Instead of reacting, I shifted my thoughts to gratitude, and let go of my attachment of how I thought that we would be using this rice - in a craft project tomorrow. I recognizing that my children had other ideas - ideas that I would have never considered. If I would have stayed attached to my original idea, it would have robbed my children of the joy and connection that they had playing their new game together. It would have also been limiting their creativity and self-expression.
When you release your attachment to a certain outcome, and choose connection rather than control,
you enable yourself to respond from the heart, with love.
Peace & Love, Dayna
