Looking back something else that has shifted for me is I don’t think about having fun anymore.
In the moment I’m feeling whatever’s there and moving forward. Sometimes it’s fun, and sometimes things feel like work.
What I’m NOT concerned with is constantly checking in with myself emotionally. =)
Where honesty comes in, is on some level, everything is funny. Especially the tantrums and craziness. Just be truthful about things and have a good laugh at yourself. There’s no need to ‘fix’ our state of mind anymore than the weather outside.
