Owning Your Mistakes

OWNING YOUR MISTAKES

Written By: Ruth Monk

 

A few weeks ago my son put on his school shoes and wandered into the lounge. He is an 11 year old boy and we live in Auckland (where it feels like it never stops raining) so the school shoes were covered in mud. And, of course, he leaves a big muddy mark on the carpet.

 

When we notice this mud his first words were “that’s not my fault” – Whaaaaat????? It certainly wasn’t mine! It was the shoes fault, it was the weather’s fault, anything but his. Well, it is safe to say my husband and I lost our cool. It wasn’t the mud on the carpet but the total lack of responsibility. The consequences were dire. No electronic devices for a week (this is death to an 11 year old). After we all cooled down we explained to him that we wouldn’t have been so angry if he had just ‘fessed up’ and said sorry. People will like you more if you own your mistakes.

Why sleeping all night is not normal…

WHY SLEEPING ALL NIGHT IS NOT NORMAL

By Ruth Monk

I really love sleep.

Every night I get into bed and do a weird little happy wriggle, sigh and say..”I love bed”. Every night! My husband is a patient man.

And I am really good at going to sleep. I can sleep on the couch, or the beach, or under a tree. I can sleep on a plane and in a fishing boat. And definitely in a car. In fact I can say, hand to heart, that I have slept in all these places sometime in the last year.

Choosing The Challenge

CHOOSING THE CHALLENGE

By Ruth Monk

I love stability and structure and routine. In fact I thrive on it. I like its security, I like its discipline.

And then I don’t.

All of a sudden I find myself saying yes to suggestions when they come along. – Yes, I’ll learn to teach flow. Yes, I’ll take on that new role at work. Yes, I’ll go canyoning. Or (most recently) Yes, I’ll write a blog. That’s when the panic sets in. What do I know about writing a blog…I write worksheets and resources for teenagers and school reports. The last time I wrote anything of length I was at university and it was an essay towards my Science degree. And I’m pretty sure a blog is different to writing a scientific essay. But I said yes for a reason. I need a challenge and I want to try something new.

So why should we challenge ourselves, and try new things?
