Do a Spot Check

“A spot-check inventory taken in the midst of disturbances can be of very great help in quieting stormy emotions… especially those where people or new events throw us off balance and tempt us to make mistakes.” 12&12, p 90-91

This is exactly what I did this morning. After having had an argument with someone I love (and feeling righteous about my position), I took a moment to do a spot check. Putting their part aside, I tried to find my part. Doing so opened the door for amends. I sent a quick text to apologize and things got better very quickly. What they say is true; it works when I work it. Grateful for the tools. ILML!
