I shared on Instagram yesterday how, when I found a bunch of spilled breast milk in the fridge that I was beyond aggravated, annoyed and very upset. Yet, it was no ones fault, but still I was angry. I quickly realized once I defaulted to feeding Mark from the source (aka me) that I needed to choose my attitude. No harm, no foul.
Dustin always reminds me to not fret if there is nothing I can do about a situation. So, I didn't. I realized I was still able to feed Mark, and chose a good attitude.
Queue 6 hours later at dinner with my family, God was really testing me.
Mark was getting fussy and I proceeded to get the last bottle of breastmilk in our Tommee Tippee bottle warmer. And then, in an instant, which felt like forever, I saw, in slow motion, the bottle tip over and that liquid gold go all over the table. Gone forever. My eyes immediately swelled with tears.
Dustin said, "Glad you did that and not me or you would be mad."
I laughed a little because it was funny, but true. And sad.
In that moment I decided to choose my attitude. Wipe the tears away and remember there is no reason to cry over spilled milk.
Again, I was able to feed Mark from the source. It was as if the Breastmilk Spill of 2016 never happened.
Choosing your attitude can be trying, but it's so worth it when you choose a good attitude.
I don't need my husband to feel like I'm upset at him over something he had nothing to do with. And, I don't need to be upset at myself either.
So last night, I chose a good attitude, and am glad I did. I was able to enjoy my time with family and still feed my son, all while having a good attitude.
Hi there! I'm Kara, of taking KARA myself! I've dabbled in blogging off and on for a while now. Mostly off. But I'm trying to change that and make a dent in this side of the world wide web. Enjoy!
