In January 2012, my handyman busted me yelling at my four boys, then ages five and under. Embarrassed I had been caught, disappointed I had become a yelling mom, ashamed because I felt I was the only one of my friends with a “yelling problem,” and most importantly saddened that I had yet again, yelled at boys, I decided enough was enough. The next day, I promised my boys I would go 365 days straight without yelling; I actually went 520 Days straight without yelling!

    I am going to let you in on a very personal struggle, one that I have only shared with a handful of people in my life because it is so embarrassing and frustrating that I have just hid it and ignored it for years. Oh, how I hoped that it would just magically disappear and that I would finally be free of the pain and shame I feel whenever the struggle rears its wicked ugly head, which is at least three or four times a day. But it never disappeared and once I started the Orange Rhino Challenge, I could no longer hide from it, or run from it. When I started tracking my triggers and gaining deeper awareness as to what made me explode, I discovered—or rather, was finally forced to admit—that this little struggle of mine wasn’t just real, but it was also a really big (like gargantuan) trigger. Yes, there was no ignoring the fact that if I wanted to stop yelling, I needed to start managing this struggle of mine STAT no matter how hard it was.
