Five months down

I’ve nearly completed five months of my second year trying to live “complaint-free”.  I cannot say that this year has been a rousing success.  In fact, I seem to be losing ground.  If this were AA, I would not be getting a token.  But I’m still plugging away.  My eyes open wide and I leave every encounter asking myself if I have given joy to the person at the receiving end.  Often the answer rings out clear: Yes.  Sometimes, though, I have to admit that I have not — that I need a refresher course in non-violent communication.  I go back and play the videos of Dr. Marshall Rosenberg (free on you-tube) and contrast what he describes with what I have put forth.  I learn.  I strive.  Five months down; and I’m still putting my best foot forward.  I count that as a partial victory, and leave myself in play.
