I will admit that
I haven’t always held my tongue
sometimes I still struggle with that
Okay, sometimes is a bit exaggerated
I struggle with holding my tongue and many times I don’t succeed.
In fact, sometimes I let loose with swear words that are sailor-worthy.
However, I am really being mindful, my intention is to stop and think before I speak so as to not say anything hurtful
paying attention to my motivation,
as the wise little calendar points out.
Warning: if we are speaking to each other and there is a long pause, I am searching – really searching for kind words.
Either that or I am trying to multitask and it’s probably not working, but usually I would go with door #1.
If we get to door #3 and I say goodbye hastily or walk away for a bit. Do not, I repeat, do NOT follow me. It might not be pretty. Just let me calm down.
