PMA

The Princess taught me a lesson on PMA or Positive Mental Attitude today. It happened before we sat down to have dinner. The scenario was:
Me          : (Pouring chilli and soya sauce condiment from plastic container) I am   so upset that the man gave me so little chilli.
Princess  : No need.
Me          : No need?
Princess: No need what. We have chilli in the fridge, can cut on your own.
I immediately felt like I was a kid whining in the candy store when mummy said "No." A simple "no need" helped put things into perspective for me. It made me realise how important PMA is; it can turn many frustrating situations into more manageable ones. 

I wonder how many times I had shown my anger and frustration and she felt there was "no need" but did not utter those words.
