Thursday, October 12, 2017 – You may be licking your wounds over a past misunderstanding but, thankfully, your recovery is steady now. Your analysis of recent events can leave you feeling discouraged, but your assessment of the current situation reveals progress today. Although you might still feel wary, you can’t help but rebuild your confidence as the day wears on. Your willingness to see your predicament from someone else’s point of view enables you to widen your perspective. Poet Mildred Barthel wrote, “Happiness is a conscious choice, not an automatic response.”
Words that you mean to be pleasant salutations might be taken as personal attacks. Choose your communication with a partner carefully. Can you avoid mixed messages?
