It can be defined as discovering hidden truths. C.S. Lewis also described humor as truth-telling.
I have set 3 big goals to accompish by Christmas:
Raccoon will recognize all 26 letters of the alphabet.
Kitty will be diaper-less.
I will keep track of how many days in a row I don't yell at my kids, until I reach 365 (hopefully by Christmas 2015).
To reach these big goals, especially 1 and 3, I need to figure out the assets I can leverage. Repetition is not working for Raccoon. I need to engage his imagination. And what can I do for more self-control? My triggers are excessive noise, simultaneous needs, and constant mess clean-up.
The thinking has begun. Insights to follow, I hope.
