All around us we can find something to spark inspiration. It’s how we choose to see that inspiration and what we do with it that will change us. I like visual reminders in my life, like this fashion that inspires me to be a better mother. I received a product in exchange for this post and will receive compensation if you click on and purchase through the links found here.
I was checking out the new styles in Cents of Style’s Be Series with Rosalina. There are so many fantastic options, that I was feeling very undecided on who I currently wanted to Be. I asked her what style she thought I should get, and without hesitation, she told me I needed the Be Kind shirt.
I thought for sure she chose it solely for the cute heart design but wanted to be sure. So I asked her why she chose it.
“Because mostly you yell.”
Knife to the heart! I didn’t think I yelled that much, but perhaps I have fallen into a habit of yelling more than I should. I believe our children pick up on our habits more than we do ourselves. Even if I don’t yell very much, it’s enough that she notices and thinks it’s too much.
With a hug and a click my decision was made. Be Kind was on it’s way, and my thoughts were already changing. What could I do to not yell so often? I needed this shirt to be my inspiration. A visual reminder that I don’t have to yell. There are other ways to deal with frustrations and impatience than with a raised voice.
Rosalina deals with anger by being silly. For her a tickle fight and funny faces quickly change our outlook, and usually lead to a kinder discussion that doesn’t involve yelling. Some of my children need a quiet place to go to, while some need a hug and deep breaths.
Today I’m pairing my Be Kind graphic tee with my Liverpool Jeans. I love bright colors, and these jeans add just the right pop of spring color to the pale pink Be Kind tee. It’s not the only reason I chose these jeans, however. What you can’t see, but I can, is the inspiring message inside my pockets. Printed on the inside of these pockets are the lyrics to Let It Be. Sometimes when remembering to Be Kind in the moment is a little difficult, I need that extra reminder to just let it be. Let the kids be kids, let the messy house be messy, let the world be so I can be.
