so my new years resolution was to try and curb my swearing…..ya, not so easy.
I will say however I have removed it from my writing which is easier but a feat nonetheless. Other than a few occasions where my blood is boiling I have done a pretty decent job at removing the f-bomb from my slang it is not an adjective! or a verb for that matter haha
I definitely swear when I’m angry – which is not good. I was reading this whole article about how swearing is actually showing a person’s inability to say what they really mean and/or feel. So, I’ve tried replacing “F YOU COLIN!” with “Babe, you not posing for a blog picture really hurts my feelings, I’m gonna need to take a breather” ;) or “Are you F&%*^((*^*%^*$%$ serious?!” with “Oh, my I am absolutely astonished that they only gave me this much notice, I guess it’s a good time for me to challenge myself to new levels” haha and so on and so forth.
A repercussion of this new way of communicating is that it has caused silent forms of negative expression to occur……
Ya, so this is what’s transpired as a result – the FU finger how dare you!
Don’t start feeling all sorry for Colin because I get it right back! He is not as nice as I make him out to be….
Yep, that’s right! your eyes are not deceiving you – that is Colin giving me the FU finger right in my
face camera lens. how dare you!
but that’s not all….
even Rex, although he’s not able to put his paw middle “finger” up, definitely gives us his version of the FU finger…..
what do you mean you’re running alone? …..how dare you!
Logan on the other hand is only full of goodness, happiness and has the sweetest smiles ever and a personality that is all that and a bag of chips He has not yet been tainted by the #%&^%$&^$’s that reside in our household.
He is the main reason I want to curb this bad habit. I don’t want him to be spitting out F-bombs left right and center because where do you think I got it from??
That is the current picture I have on my phone – so I see it every time she calls She’d probably give me another one if I didn’t throw some blame on my father too….
so I will.
He is definitely a contributing factor. There was a lot of swearing on his part – he was an angry, scary swearer too. I was swearing since a very young age because of it…..old habits die hard!
Side Note: I also want you guys to know that you were one of my main sources of inspiration – not many of you swear! I love it I know by January 2013 I’ll have conditioned myself to not substitute swearing for feelings YAY! although there may still be so FU finger shots… so don’t kick my trash
[hopefully this post doesn't offend anyone - as that's not my intent at all xo]
1. was there a bad habit you were/are trying to kick this year??
2. do you swear?
3. what was the last nice thing someone did for you??
Colin left me a ready-to-go portion of rice and chicken balls for when I got home from work yesterday I was very pleased xoxox
