Sometimes it just doesn't work...

I can laugh now as I write this because I am always trying to be aware of the ongoing need for self-compassion.
I am finally able to do things everyday to really take care of myself.  I do some yoga stretches (now outside in the sun!) which is a wonderful way to start the day.  I try to meditate every other day with Deepak Chopra's guided meditations.  I highly recommend you get his Wellness Meditation package.  It is 21 days discussing health and science of our bodies with a short meditation and with the most beautiful music.  I have the package with Oprah's intro which I also like. 
Anyway, I was meditating recently in the late afternoon and I take about 1/2 hour to prepare, listen and unwind.  After I finished I was getting readjusted to my other activities and my husband came in and started a discussion which ended with me snapping at him and storming out to go to the store!!  How is that for calm?  Not good.  What I discovered after my husband and I talked about it, because I freaked him out a bit, was PMS is stronger than meditation!!
So all the self care in the world cannot stop some reactions for me!  So funny.  Now, it did lead my husband and I to have a conversation about something I apparently needed to get off my chest and I apologized for my outburst.  I sometimes tell him I wonder why he stays.

I don’t think that reading can combine with any battle. Because, experience of reading multiple information can help us in gaining much knowledge about different topics of world. We can become familiar with new terms and many other inventions too.
