Good, good, bad.
In my family we try to get together to eat dinner every day.
One of the reasons why this is so important to us is that we have this little thing.
I love this insight in my family member’s everyday life.
I love to see my teenage daughter be aware of what good thing has happen to her. How she sometimes appreciate even the most simple things, like how the sun was shining when she biked the few miles home from school.
I love when my husband and children include me in one of their good experiences and if it happens to be in the worse, I appreciate this opportunity for them to be honest and get it out in the open.
Both are fine.
It’s optional to share your “good, good, bad” but I can count on one hand how many times a family member had opted out. I really recommend you to try it with your family.
When you’ve tried it a couple of times, you will want your family to do this every day.
