When attempting to build your dream family it is tempting to focus on right circumstances over right responses.
In your mind, when you imagine your dream family, life is happy and warm. What do you do in the meantime when things are hard and cold relationally?
The answer is you concentrate on how you respond to others as if the reality of your new family has already taken place until it actually does. Take the vision of who you want your family to be and hold on to that as you begin acting in a manner congruent to it. It won’t fit the situation but you are working to transform your family from the inside out to get real, lasting change not just outward compliance.
