Good Saturday Morning, Friends! My Soul Intention: calling a time out is better than fouling out. You usually call a “time out” when your kids are acting up. You see they’re out of control and use a time out for them to regroup and get it back together. The same holds true for you. When you’re stressed and irritable, instead of lashing out at an innocent bystander or the family pet, go to a quiet place, calm down, and regroup before you get back into the game.
