    KISS- Keep it Simple, Stupid! (being me!) I used to make some things harder than they had to be! :)

    Pick your battles!
    Win the battles that are important to you, the others aren’t worth the headache or the time

    It will get better.

    We all have bad days, weeks, even years. But there is always something better around the corner. A school break, a semester change, a grade level change, a school change.

    My husband is this way. For 30+ years he makes things sooo much harder than they need to be. Usually it's because he's trying to please others. He is a people pleaser to the max. It drives ME crazy.

    I actually trained myself to KISS. I no longer make it harder than it needs to be. A part might be people pleasing and another part ties in w/ perfectionism. I am thankful I no longer struggle with either 1 of those now! :)

    Keep an open mind (or heart).
