Maximize & Minimize

I heard a speaker recently talk about how we moms tend to maximize our FAILURES and minimize our ACCOMPLISHMENTS. There are so many things during the day that we feel we could have done, should have done, or should have done differently. This will naturally make us discouraged about our role as a parent... and our life in general.

Instead of maximizing our failures and minimizing our accomplishments, the speaker challenged us to:


We can do this by focusing on the things that we did right, excellent, or things that simply made our kids and our family smile.... like preparing food for them, singing a song, reading a book.... the little things in life are often times the biggest accomplishments! :)

"Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things."

Philippians 4:8 (NIV)
