I really need to speak better.

Words are powerful. Mine need to be better. Frick.

When I was living in on campus, one of the things that seriously helped when I noticed bad habits was to commit for one month to extinguishing that bad habit. I need to pick better words, and by doing so, eventually have cause to speak less. While I still talk a lot, I need to pick words that will be decent. I think I’m at the point where it is a fair thing and entirely possible. Words need to be better than their context.

So, for this month, until March 6th, I’m going to be saying better words. At this point, I think I have most of the structures I need there to accomplish this goal. It just comes down to picking out better things to say. And that is entirely possible.

I want to see what will happen by March 6th. I need a good outlet for the desire to challenge myself. It isn’t working to bother people, only because it bothers them. That should be reason enough.

So! Picking out better words. Let’s see what happens. I’m excited.

I am a second-grade teacher and pastor-to-be who loves people. I spend my weekends with friends or wandering the museums of DC alone and with a journal, trying to put words on the places of the soul that still feel wordless. I spent most of my days at school trying to learn patience through my students and running on sheer nerdy passion. I follow Jesus Christ, and savor that as my most important identity--that I am a child of God, as are infinite others, regardless of their other identities. Christ is my one thing.
