So I am doing the Love Dare.  There are journaling pages in the book but I"d rather do it here than write in the book.

Day 1 - Say nothing negative. 

This is going to be a tough one for me, because I am by nature a very negative person and quick to anger.  I thought this dare is supposed to get harder as it goes on?  LOL.  This first one is already tough for me.  Patience is not a virtue I have.  With anyone.

 

I will come back at the end of the day or tomorrow morning to answer:

Did anything happen today to cause anger towards your mate?  Were you tempted to think disapproving thoughts and to let them come out in words?

Actually, already today he managed to get a speeding ticket.  Although my reaction was to laugh, but I'm sure laughing at him wouldn't have been a good idea.

 

===Okay so I'm not sure if day 1 was a fail or not, but since I am not 100% I am going to do it over tomorrow.

He came over tonight when he got off work and we made love and talked for HOURS.  It ended up being like a marriage counseling session or something.  We brought up some stuff from the past but it was TOTALLY calm and everything was said in an understanding, loving way, even when trying to communicate negative feelings about something from the past, it all came across the RIGHT way.  I am just sending him home right now and it's 230 am.  He's supposed to come over tomrrow too but that is depending upon if his mom needs the car.  So I am going to do day 1 over regardless, because I'm sure if he doesn't end up coming we will still be talking a lot.
