A New Road

Sometimes my mouth gets me into trouble. I have a tendency to reflect the sarcasm around me. When hanging out around sarcastic, dry-humored people, I easily slip into that mode and go for it. Often much to my horror when I reflect on it later! Yes, it can be funny. Yes, as a girl, I would probably rather be identified with Elizabeth Bennet than Jane. But you know what? I don't want to be known at the witty one with the instant one-liners. Whether I meant to or not, words have the ability to hurt people. Instead, I want to encourage and lift up those around me. Still standing up for and speaking the truth, but doing it in love. So I'm traveling a new road. I know there will be times...ahem, tonight :P...that I slip back into old habits. But I'm staking out a new path, and like Robert Frost said, it can make all the difference. Come join me?
