Throw Your Emotions To The Wind
Wouldn’t it be great to take any emotion you may be feeling and reach deep inside yourself, to the pit of your emotional center and gather up all the unpleasant feelings and wind them up into a ball (much like how a snowball is made) and toss that son-of-a-gun out of the window into the wind… ahhhh nice! now you feel relaxed, at peace, centered, and not like your old self two minutes ago going crazy (a case of the crazies… I think I wrote an old post about that… oh that’s right I did… click here to check it out!)
- Ugh! I hate that HE of all people forgot or just chose not to say Happy Valentine’s Day… wind that ball of emotion up woman… aim… fire! throw it to the wind!… Now say… I couldn’t give a damn!(thrown to the wind).
- Ugh! I’m fed up with kissing butt and working my tail off at work only to watch someone else get the promotion… wind it up and throw that ball to the wind… feels good doesn’t it?!
- Ugh! what’s with all the nagging? do this do that… I’m already overwhelmed dang it! You know what to do… reach inside gather up those overwhelmed and irritated emotions, make that emotional snowball, pack it tight, and throw it as far as you can, to the wind… nice!
Alright I think you get the gist of it… Now let’s dig further into the family life! Hopefully we can prevent a lot of the ‘throw it to the wind emotions’ if we practice these simple solutions…
How To Deal With The Woman In The Household!
Sometimes our emotions can cause an insane us to form and the people in our household notice right away… ut-oh, mom is talking in francais again, she’s got the look, quick act aloof, sneak out of the door and be sure to stay out for the whole dang day… WRONG! when someone (like your mom) is upset, yes, sneak out of the door only to return quick with a CD she’s been wanting and some flowers and tell that woman she is loved, Oh, and don’t forget to mention you’ll be making dinner tonight (something other than mac&cheese with cut up hotdogs might I add!) Just know that the super hero woman of the house mainly gets cranky when she feels overwhelmed AND unappreciated by the people in her life… So while she’s pissed (excuse my language) DON’T try to hug her right away(she may hit you!), just get your butt to the closest store, buy her something sweet (not expensive!) and tell her you’re going to do the chores… when you see her shoulders relax THEN go in for the hug! ~wink~
Note: if you don’t practice this, she will be throwing a lot of the emotional balls to the wind, and a few may just end up hitting you! (take cover!)
How To Deal With The Man In The Household!
He’s about to enter the door from a long days work, thinking ‘finally time to relax and enjoy the favorite spot on the couch, maybe crack open a nice cold beer and veg-out for a little bit before I grill up something tasty and pay attention to the other members of the house… Ha! good luck! He walks into a monster-infested home ‘I’m sorry I must have the wrong house,’ slowly trying to escape, even flirting with the idea of going back to work… Oh NO! Too late, you’re sucked in now… wifey saw you and has directed you to the first project out of three. Now the wife stands there… let’s take a look at her point of view shall we… ‘oh no, there’s that look he has when I’ve gone too far… I should have waited a little longer to ask him to fix this and that… he’s gone to the dark side… if the kids weren’t around I could do the sexy walk up to him and whisper sweet nothings into his ear to reel him back to happy land and have him WANT to stay home… But no, that’s not happening! Kids run to him ‘hi dad, will you play with me, look at this cool thing, oh let me tell you this… What to do… hmmm! well, don’t go as far as fluffing his pillows for him, but do ask him about his day and whether he’d like anything, like a hug and kiss, shoulder rub, or to be alone with the TV (man’s best friend!)
How To Deal With The Kids In The Household!
They just walk into the house from school and practice (any sport or extra curricular activity of their choice) and they feel like they’re playing a game of 50 questions I must answer before I can eat, chill out, and then do homework, oh please don’t mention chores, PLEASE! They may roll an occasional eye or seem distant, as the 50 question game just keeps going and what they really want is a little me time (no depression, I swear, just ME time!) Not to worry parents, ME time is for all ages, let it happen…then spread out your questions over the course of the day/evening.
How To Deal With The Pets In The Household
Pet me, feed me, walk me, pet me… I need attention! Do I really have to whine, whimper, yap whenever I need these things? can’t you just get it? Oh and don’t pass me off to each other ‘Honey, the dog looks like he has to go outside’ only to have the guy you call ‘honey’ respond with ‘I’m busy, can’t you? or get one of the kids to do it.’ As a dog… this process takes a while and that’s when I start to walk funny while holding in my potty as I whimper and FINALLY someone opens that door for me to run out… ahhh! Let’s work out a routine shall we?!
Well I hope you enjoyed the little comical but very serious matter… Know that a family that works as a team has less emotional hell, a functional family/home life will save you on a lot of ‘daily’ stress… And if you do get stressed be sure to throw your emotional balls out to the wind and make room for some happy emotions (let it go!) No Grudges please!
PS: if throwing your emotions doesn’t work, purchase the inside snowballs and have at it with each other! I did this and it is a great way to bond with the family as you throw the snowball-frustrations at them and when you ping them in the head (it doesn’t hurt!) IT IS HILARIOUS… and everyone starts to laugh (I know this from experience, it’s awesome!)
