Taste Your Words – Wise Words Wednesday
Chewing food with our mouths open is considered rude and disgusting. Saying words before we think about them can also be quite unsightly.
As we come together for the holidays and forge our way through holiday crowds, we need to make sure our words are as sweet and digestible as possible.
Taste your words before you spit them out.
Consider the weight and brevity of what you say. If you know that you are someone who struggles with thinking before you speak, make dedication to improving on it your Christmas gift to yourself and the ones you love.
Apologies and guilt leave a terrible taste in our mouths. Considering what you say before it is spoken will help prevent those icky instances from occurring. Taste your words before you spit them out.
Give your words intentions of kindness and consideration. Put energy into speaking simple and loving statements. Make your words matter in a positive way. “Be sure to taste your words before you spit them out.”

P.S. Please do not chew with your mouth open. It really is yucky.
