Apr TIFC - Day Six

Progress. Slow, but progress nonetheless. I'm still need quilt and add words - several more hours.

Living consciously...

I considered skipping the reading after I scanned the practice and saw a discussion on "You" and "I" Orientation. I don't know where it comes from but I just shut down when someone starts with the 'use your "I" language.' And truth be told I've had a few spousal fight with "I feel" statements. Then I read:

... if you put the word that after the words I feel, you're offtrack. A feeling is a feeling (anger, pride, joy); anything else is almost undoubtedly an accusation.

I'm certainly guilty of some embedded that statements and now I'll need to add it to my (growing) list of things to be aware of!

I like this. Once again you've found such a perfect fabric.
