jabberings, jottings, and jumbled thoughts
Wonderful quote and apt image. Greetings!
Hi! I loved the image because it made the point so well! :-)
Timing is everything, Shorty Bear! ;-)
Think before opening your mouth, or you might find yourself inserting your foot!
I am so very good at doing that, but I'm getting a little better with time. Impulsive is my middle name, or at least it was. Maybe, slowing down is a good thing at least in some aspects of getting older!
Hmm...yes. You know how I feel about this. *wink*
This one could surely be your motto, Annie! Indeed I've learned more than one hard lesson by blasting out my thoughts and feelings without considering the consequences first. ;-) I think there needs to be a balance between reserve and impulsiveness, as there needs to be with all things.
Why do I remember this after I open my mouth?
Yes indeed, that's me too Patricia! I tend to speak on impulse and often wish I hadn't. There's a time and place to speak out and state what's on your mind, but it's better to think about it first. I wish I was more like that, and I am better than I used to be, but I doubt I'll ever really be good at it. I think it, I will likely say it, and let the chips fall where they may. Maybe the trick is the manner in one says things, even more than the refraining from comment. I don't believe it's good to bottle up things inside either. Moderation, always!
Your comments are always appreciated... they make me smile! :-)
