That sounds great, Jane! Sounds like you have turned a corner!
I too am slowly learning to RESPOND rather than REACT. This morning at the grocery store I bought tuna, cottage cheese, sunflower seeds and ummmmmmm, popcorn. Then I picked up a bag of chocolate covered almonds (just in case). Then I responded to my initial thought by putting back the almonds and thinking, “Let’s see if I can survive without the chocolate covered almonds.”
So far so good!
