A normal day

This morning I was up before 5. I heard a distinctive grumbling from the other side of the room.

Normally, I would have shouted back some language I am working hard on not using. Normally, I would have been hurt and angry.

Not today.

Why not?

In a meeting I realized that my reactions are not cool. I realized that I can not continue to punish him or myself for every mistake we have ever made.

I can not keep a list of every little time someone hurts me and hold it over them like a bloody axe. What I can do is gather more information.

So I did.

I handled it. Quietly.

I want this to be my new normal.

Thanks for reading my blog.
