Do over, please!

Hey You,

Have you ever needed a do over on the time  you spoke too fast?  What happens to the  slow down button of the mind when the emotions are in play?

I can admit there were a few too many times I went chasing behind my words, but to my dismay I couldn’t catch them.

Have you ever responded abrasive,  judgmental,  spontaneous, emotional, with revenge, guilt, or the wrong intent?  Asking yourself, now how did that response come out so quickly? Can I get a do over, please!

From our thoughts to the outside world in a matter of moments: that is all it takes to build up/tear down a person’s self-esteem, say yes to a situation when you really wanted to say no, or to ignore/respond to a hostile situation.

Have you ever spoken without thought concerning your relationship, family, friendships, your future, your finances, your career,  and even your current mood?

Am I the only one guilty of listening just to respond at times?  Hey, let’s be honest…

Remember the  saying, sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me. It sounds good as a nursery rhyme, but it’s far from true. Words can hurt and they can stay with you.

Unfortunately No do overs, but we can strive to do better.

  • My momma have been telling me this for years, Think before you speak!
  • Everything doesn’t justify a  response.
  • It’s ok to say No!
  • Don’t let your emotions dictate your conversations.
  • You don’t have to always be right.
  • Don’t listen to have a rebuttal.
  •  The Bible says, Be swift to hear and slow to speak.

Be kind, Be Bold and Be a Woman on the Move.

What would I tell my younger self?

Dear beautiful,  courageous and intelligent brown girl,

Being alone isn’t the end of the world,  it’s  in the alone time you discover who you really are. Your likes and dislikes  won’t be clouded by so many voices and opinions. You discover what makes you smile, your favorite foods and most importantly your purpose in life.

Friendships/Relationships are good but, don’t ever force yourself to fit in. Don’t dumb down, don’t settle, and don’t  give in to make someone want or love you. Embrace your  uniqueness because there is always  someone admiring what you’re  uncomfortable with in your life. Having a good friendship really brings joy so, please pick wisely. Friends don’t always talk or see each other, but you count on your good friends.

Mom really  does have good wisdom that could  save you from a lot of pitfalls. Don’t place more value in other people’s voice greater than  your mom’s voice. She really has your  best interest at heart. She will love you when life disappoints you and even after you disappoint her.

Don’t rush to grow up, there is plenty of time to enjoy the things you’re hurrying to do. Learn to enjoy each moment of your life. Be present in your conversations with people. Soak in each moment with family and friends, the older you get time flies.

Smile, Be Kind, Be fearless and Be Strong…

 

You are a Woman on the move, so  that heartache,  that lost promotion, bad debt, or bad mistake won’t stop you from moving forward . Arise out of the past and move forward.
