As I've mentioned, I’m trying to be more cognizant and careful about what I do and don't say. I’ve noticed over the last few days that it’s starting to affect my attitude. I work at a national pregnancy hotline, and you may have noticed from certain blog entries that I can get pretty frustrated with people. However, I’ve been trying not to make comments from that frustration. I have noticed that I haven’t been as frustrated or irritated by ignorance as usual. I can only assume that it’s a result of trying not to say what doesn’t need to be said. I don’t feel as stressed either. There’s a school of thought that says that speaking a word makes that concept true. If I’m not speaking my frustration (when doing so is not helpful). I’m not saying don’t talk about problems if you need to. Maybe I’m getting a glimpse of life with a tame tongue?
