Seth Godin has done it again. He makes the most amazing posts about business, but they so apply to marriage.
Here is a quote from his blog post The Worst Moments are Your Best Opportunity. This is definitely a challenge for integrity and personal growth.
… You are presumed to be showing us your real self when you … have a headache … haven’t had a good night’s sleep … or are truly overwhelmed.
I think this is why it is so important to focus on things like kindness and generosity on a daily basis. It works these values into your life continually and when the poo hits the fan it is far easier to continue acting from gentleness and love than to slip into irritation and fussiness.
