I understand there is stress we can't avoid it, death, illness and many unexpected events... but there is stress we can avoid. It's the petty stuff. The small stuff.
I constantly try to be a better person - it's not an easy task, I am human and I lose my temper and drive - more often than I wish to admit ;) That being said, I have learned "the truth' does set you free. ;) !!
I made some changes.
~I don't assume - if it is bothering me - as in 'on my mind' - I ask.
~I tell the truth. If you don't want to know don't ask... I am realizing, most people have a pretty good idea before they ask - do you agree?
I try to be nice.... lol - If I can't, I try not to say anything at all, unless of course it means something important to me! What are you waiting for speak up!
TRY to speak with some thought.. I recently watched a tedtalk (I think) and the gentleman speaking said remember this when speaking: HAIL
It is what I try to do and will continue to do as long as I'm here.
It's how we learn.
I certainly have held nothing back on this blog to date.
I made a promise to myself and God as long as I'm here to speak my mind. I just so happen to do it with a blog.
Others do it other ways. It is not how we do it but what we say.
FOR one day try not to say anything negative about anyone!
Not even Rob Ford or Steven Harper! LOL Can you do it?
it is a habit like anything else. It needs work to make it a pattern.
Either way... HAIL is something I think we can all learn.
I work daily on eliminating gossip, it's easy to 'get caught up'.. but I think I'd rather get caught up in some art. Tune it out to TOON in.
