My step-daughter reminded me last night about an occasion when she and I were sorting through a group of her shirts. My role was to alter, mend or pronounce the shirt dead and prepare it for burial. I pinned notes on each shirt so we wouldn’t forget the status as we moved on to mending. One shirt needed absolutely no alteration, mending and was still very wearable but she just didn’t like it as much. So I marked it, “Perfect—adjust attitude.”
This same dear step-daughter shared with me last night that she now applies the phrase “perfect—adjust attitude” to relationships. She’s brilliant! It works. When you let go of the need to change others, change the relationship and adjust your own attitude the affect on your relationships is magic.
