Note to Self: Be Mindful

I came across this video today. It has such a powerful message. I am often amazed at how much of a 'mini-me' my kids can be, especially my daughter. I always have a suggestion on how to make the experience better....process improvement shall we say; or frequently I exhibit body language that if spoken would not say nice things. It is so true that our children imitate us. It can be the greatest form of flattery, or unfortunately, the worst of lessons that we are teaching our children. The next time I feel like I want to criticize or make a negative comment, I am going to look at that little 'mirror' in the backseat or walking beside me and ask myself if that is what I want to see reflected.
