Tonight I was sitting here reading "Change of Heart" by Jodi Picoult and watching my family out of the corner of my eyes. Mikey was annoying Max while Max was doing the same to Alex. I sat there yelling at them like I normally do and then it hit me. Why do I yell at them? I was a kid and I did a lot more than that before my mother came in and scolded me. Maybe it's because we live in a small apartment and we are always on top of each other. Or maybe it's because I am always in a constant battle with them over the mess that I cleaned 5 minutes earlier that seemed to reappear by the time I turned around. But the reality of it all is that I am having more bad moments then good.

I promised myself in the beginning of the year that I was going to work harder at letting the small things go, not just with my kids or my husband but with every day encounters. Maybe I just needed a little something to get me started...something like a daily reflection. This is where this blog comes in.

Daily Reflections will feature a small tidbit of my daily thoughts. Each day will be labeled by an intention or reflection word. Depending on the day. I will probably add in some of my favorite quotes and maybe a few spiritual journeys along the way but the project is going to try to be a daily effort.

Now it's time to open my heart and my soul and just.....release.
