Edgy, sharp, cranky, churlish, frustrated. These adjectives can describe us at various times. Maybe you’re short on sleep. Maybe you’re stressed about money. Maybe you have a conflict with your spouse or friend. Maybe there’s a lot of pressure at work or school. Regardless of the reason, let’s be careful about our words & attitudes in these challenging times.
Here are some helpful ideas to keep our attitudes, actions & words seasoned with grace:
- Ask the Holy Spirit to help you
- Chose self control over reactionary behavior
- Take a 30second pause & look for stuff to be grateful for
- Remember that we often prefer the consequences of grace rather than the outcomes of expressing frustration or crankiness 🙂
