Five Things to Do When You’re Seeing Red: Five for Five Minute Friday — 17 Comments

  1. Girl! I had a hard time with this one too! Holy moly! But I like your list. And your bonus is my absolute fave. Glad I popped by to read. (Side note: when typing “popped” above, I actually wrote “pooped” and had to correct it. Ha.)

    Blessings my friend!

  3. I love the part about having the kids sing their angry words to each other. That’s brilliant! I also love the kids link-up. So adorable! When mine can type she’s doing that for homework!

  4. I didn’t think I struggled with anger until I became a mom. Love the tip to sing! I think that would make mommy and kiddos feel better! Though hopefully I won’t have to try it out for the rest of the day. 😉

  5. Tina, you know Chautona Havig’s work, so cool. She was helping me with the cover design for my second book. Staying cool under pressure–the forgiveness thing really works for me just after the situation is over, but I should give it try right at crisis point. Thanks for reminding me of my values.

  6. Some excellent tips. I especially love the one about visualizing a giant red balloon.

    Thank you for linking to Raising Imperfection.
    Please come back Friday to see if you were featured. 🙂

  7. You’ve done a beautiful job marrying these two writing challenges.
    I, too, find myself singing old hymns when my fuse is short. It’s my life-line, I guess.
    Love this list – thank you for the tools to help us when we are seeing red!

  8. Great take on RED! I always need help with that- with my hot, italian temper…I mean passion. Anyway also love that balloon image…helpful. Mostly remembering grace works for me. MOSTLY.
    Thanks. Visiting from Cozy Reading Spot!
