Leave on a High Note

Updated: Aug 23, 2018

One tip that has helped make our family lives smoother is to always 'end on a high note'.  I used to eek out every second of joy out of an outing, leaving only once there was the inevitable breakdown.  Now I leave when we are all having a great time.  No breakdowns. No stress. 

This keeps me energized throughout the weekend. Activities with the kids leave me energized versus drained. And, let’s be honest — with two small kids, leaving on a high note is probably only cutting out of 10 minutes of fun before the breakdowns ensue.  

I’m starting to apply this to other parts of my life, too.  At a recent conference, I went to one too many talks, feeling like I was hit by a bus. Should have ended on a high note. Sounds crazy, but sometimes doing less is also doing less fun, too. 

Leave a little gas in the tank. You’ll thank yourself later. 

Through self love and self care, you fill up your tank so you can share it to the world.
