Courage Challenge of the Day
One night this weekend, mix it up at bedtime. Either everybody switches bedrooms, or you all sleep backwards in your own beds, or you could build a tent in some other room in the house for you ALL to sleep in for the night! Most of us are accustomed to sleeping in new places when we travel, but what about in your own home? What's it like to inhabit your child's space? Notice what feels different about turning over your bedroom to your child or piling blankets and pillows on the kitchen floor. Does switching it up get you out of your comfort zone, and if so, what can you learn about yourself by changing a simple routine? We believe that adaptation and flexibility are integral to all six types of courage.
