This week my husband, son and I moved into a new (to us) home. Stressful, yes. I noticed something that I want to change. Both my husband and I got a little short with each other when we were asked to do something that was outside of our “plan” for the day. It’s like we had a bit of tunnel vision and we got cranky when we were asked to look at or consider something else outside of that zone.
How well do you handle a sudden change of plans? Most of the time I do fairly well. I think maybe the shortness of energy was a part of the problem for me this time. I had only so much energy and I planned where to use it. Being asked to change that plan meant possibly not having enough energy to do what I wanted. I needed to communicate my needs better and realize that, in the scope of the move, a change in order wasn’t that big of a deal.
