Today is finally Day 1 of Week 2, which means in addition to continuing to work on Temperance, I will be adding Silence this week. Here’s what silence meant to BF:
Silence: Speak not but what may benefit others or yourself. Avoid trifling conversation.
Personal news: Feeling really anxious the last few days. Hoping to feel more zen tomorrow.
Temperance: 0 tick marks for diet decaf pop consumption. 1 for over indulging in Cheetos–actually let’s make it 2 ticks, there were a LOT of Cheetos involved.
Silence: 0 ticks today. I feel like what I said to my kids was of benefit to them even if it only made them laugh or we were playing a game together. Words today spoken to my husband were mostly of benefit to me, not him, but that still counts as okay under Benjy’s definition. I needed to talk about how I’ve been feeling anxious lately and to try to work out what is bringing this up in me and try to come up with some ideas for coping with it. As you may have guessed from the blog so far I am not someone who likes to sit around complaining about problems whilst (bonus points for ye olde timey word) doing nothing to try to fix them. See you tomorrow! Have a great day!
