personalities and compensation is the only way to go.
Tomorrow's projected emotional storm is an opportunity to:
a. To respond and not react.
b. To speak my truth about what troubles me. A chance to not be passive.
c. Use recovery principles. I will say what I mean, mean what I say, but not say it meanly.
e. Develop my character. To maintain my policy of not accepting unacceptable behavior.
f. Clearly adhere to standards I have when relating with others.
g. Draw nearer to God. Apart from applying God's strength, I cannot tolerate the stress, tension and outbursts I usually encounter when meeting the person I see tomorrow.
1. Met with friends tonight. It's good, connecting with others who are transparent, warm, caring and supportive, sharing a laugh with them, too. It's great having fun, enjoying spontaneity, not knowing how the evening will turn out.
2. Tended to my priorities today. I always accomplish more when I do. It feels good, being effective. Sorting through all the things that scream for my attention is challenge that forces me to focus, creating clarity out of a whirlwind of demands. The fruit of my efforts is that I enjoy peace of mind and order.
3. I am thankful for the strength I derive from my relationship with God and my Balcony/Safe People. I would be unable to handle tomorrow's drama apart from God's grace and strength
