This morning at breakfast I noticed clearly how the old patterns of mine that caused so much trouble in the past are still there.
My son sat down at the table and by the time he had poured himself a glass of orange juice my mind already produced 4 criticizing thoughts about his actions.
I remember three of them:
“don’t drink so much juice , it contains a lot of sugar and you’re getting overweight.”
“you’re holding the pack of juice wrong , you will spill juice.”
“you’re late for school , no time for hanging around.”
5 years ago I would have acted all those thoughts out into speech , ruining any positive moods around me. Now I see the thoughts and that’s it. This change didn’t take 5 years to happen, infact it already happened after half a year or so – but is is nice to see the difference again.
