1. We went and hung out with my parents and sibling and sibling in law today, and I didn’t say a single rude, shocking, unkind word to anyone the whole time. That went well because I am maturing.
2. I got the heater working in our minivan today, which hasn’t worked since we owned it, and burrrrr it’s been cold to drive in, plus in the rain you constantly had to wipe off the inside of the windshield of the fog. That went well because I finally got over my mental block and just fixed it. And cause my dad provided brilliant expert advice when it was needed.
3. Today when I was at the auto parts store getting stuff for the minivan, a guy was buying a battery and asked the counter person if anyone could install it. And he said “no”. So I said “Would you let me help you?” And he said “Sure”. So I grabbed a deep well 10 mil. socket and a wratchet and in 3 minutes I had his new battery installed. And he handed me $20 cash and said thank you. And I didn’t refuse it. So that paid for the bits I needed for the minivan heater fix. That went well because I had the tools, and wanted to help, and I’m good at that sort of thing, and I’ve gotten over the “don’t let people pay you for your help” thing I grew up with.
