Here are my takeaways from the Google + Hangout today with Mom It Forward on building a super hero family. Today’s topic was all about team work. I highly recommend you watch the video and hear how these quotes and reactions developed. You can also get the eBook about teamwork on Mom It Forward’s eBooks page.
These are the comments I left on Google+ during the Hangout. I’ve been praying to be able to do life better and I feel like today’s hangout really equipped me with some skills and ideas for embracing motherhood and getting back in the game. Last night was particularly rough and even after a night’s sleep, this morning didn’t go so hot either! But, even though I was in the middle of watching the hangout when the girls got home from school, we were all able to connect and enjoy each other.
- “Don’t let it weaken us when it’s hard. Make that commitment and move forward.” I needed to hear that today! Thanks +Michelle McCullough
- +Amber Passey The easy choice is to walk away. The harder choice is to work really hard to make things work. Don’t you think? But in the end, the team that works together to work things out ends up being the strongest team! 🙂
- +Lindsey Miller Petersen We call ourselves Team Passey and do a little go team cheer before we start something to get pumped about it!
- “What can I do to make the situation better? What can I do to make the strong team player I need to be. What is my role?” Awesome way to evaluate how to embrace motherhood!
- “Know the why and find a way to nurture yourself.” Great advice for parenting.
- “Power up and power down routines.” I need to develop those and implement them!
Thanks +Michelle McCullough
- So true, +Michelle McCullough Expectations have such an influence for positive or negative experiences. I’m constantly adjusting my expectations.
- “Don’t take on roles that don’t match your values”.
We totally use songs to help us in cleaning up! We usually need at least two songs per room 🙂
- +Jyl Johnson Pattee My mom is a cycle breaker, too! And has spent my whole life trying to learn and implement skills to make our family strong. I really admire and appreciate her diligence.
Afterward, Sammi offered to cut up green beans for dinner. Go team! Then as she’s cutting them up, she cheered on the ones that weren’t overgrown or dried out, “Yeah! You made it!” And then she put them in the pot. I love these cooperative moments where we share work and love and experience joy.
