Are Your Positive Thoughts


Making You Feel Bad?


"Just as your car runs more smoothly and requires less energy to go faster and farther when the wheels are in perfect alignment, you perform better when your thoughts, feelings, emotions, goals, and values are in balance." Brian Tracy

I assumed that as they built up they would be more noticeable or maybe perhaps when he went in the bathroom in the afternoon or evening he might notice them then and would pick them up. Sadly, no. None of these things took place. They seemed reasonable assumptions on my part but they were apparently utterly for- eign to my beloved offspring.


As this trend continued and I made repeated attempts at correcting this behav- ior to no avail, my anger & frustration grew. This small issue grew and consumed my energy and attention. Every time I walked past his bathroom and saw another infrac-
