Behavior is Truly Everywhere!

As I spent the Christmas holiday with family, it was so fun to sit back and observe all of the different behaviors in the room! At one point, someone asked me “why are you smiling?” My response, “I just love watching all the different behaviors”, it is what makes up “our team”. To have the awareness of behavior has changed my life. Seriously, first to begin to really make sense of who I am and then also to have an understanding of others, has opened my eyes in so many ways.

During our Christmas get together, a family friend was giving my husband and I an update on her family. She shared how her brother has 8 year old twin girls. As she began to describe them, immediately behaviors came to my mind. She described one as a quiet, mellow girl, really sweet and the other one as always on the go, very talkative and just wants to have fun. She continues with the story of how she took them to the to the candy store in the mall. The outgoing one took off and was just filling up bags of candy all over the place, while the quiet one says, “Aunt Yvonne it is ok if I can get 2 jaw breakers and a bag of jelly beans?”

Our behaviors are formed with both our genetics and our environment. I thought this was such a great example of behavior and just really how cool it is to be able to understand and appreciate the differences in each of us. It is what forms “our team”!
