Actually, overall I did very well, and did not have to use my code word at all. I felt irritated only for a few minutes one evening the whole time. The first of the month I got a Louise Hay book from the library, and have been studying that.
I also have been tuning in to the Christian channel on tv rather than watch cable news all the time. I am really weaning myself off those channels, and I am certainly glad. I find that if I tune in for 20 minutes once a day, I hear all the news I need or want to hear.
I have had some uncertainty this month, but I have turned everything over to God. Whatever happens, I am OK with it, and give myself no reason to worry about anything.
I am usually fairly generous, but these last weeks has found me more than usual. And I don't find myself worrying if I will have to do without by making these gifts.
Thanks for starting this. Even if I had wanted to get down, I told myself I had a commitment to be positive and couldn't get out of that, so I am sure that prevented any possible ups and downs!
