Okay, so this is a self-motivating post, that hopefully I will read over and over and implement! Sometimes, I need to stop and think about what I say and do. I realized last night that I don't need to say everything that comes to my brilliant mind, no matter how funny I may think it will be. I know, I'm funny, so why shouldn't I say funny things:) (J/K, that was an example). Sometimes, I am in a situation where I want to impress someone or without realizing it, want to be the center of attention (really it is sub-conscience, I don't like a lot of attention thrown my way). And at those moments, my brain goes on "check me out and everything I say mode." And what happens is, I do come up with something brilliant to say, then something funny, and then take that extra step that didn't need to be taken. I need someone to give me the death look when I need to end. Really, I don't think I was that bad, but if the next day I feel like I didn't do a good job about lifting others up or being my best self, then I know I've gone and done it again. So, Self, step 1) start thinking a little before you speak, 2)Run through the outcomes before you open your mouth!, and 3)Make sure everyone around you leaves feeling better about themselves.
See, now I feel better and that I've taken a step in the right direction.
