Saying no to yelling and aggressiveness

I dedicated 2014 to love more and yell less.  In fact at home I also put up posters around the house to remind myself.  I started this challenge a few days before Christmas and went 4 days yell free than I succumbed and I can't seem to regain myself and today was my worse day ever to say all the truth.  I am quite sad that today I let aggressiveness take over all my good intentions with the poster seemingly mocking me from up above where it is hung.

Today I also realised I have been trying to change my diet but somehow not doing it albeit all the signs.  And it clicked to me that while we didn't really eat too much during Christmas, we did eat a lot of meat and sugar and THAT is the biggest culprit in my kids seeming over stimulated and me not able to keep my calm.  Maybe just maybe I am bonkers thinking this but I am pretty sure of myself on this!  I look truly forward to go back to our routines come Monday.

Upon reflection, while I will still aim to love more and yell less this year, my intention, my purpose, my dedication should probably be different. Only I need to sit on it a bit more to see if this is so or if I am to stick to my original thinking.
