Okay, so I do not believe in New Year’s Resolutions, I do however believe in continuous self-reflection and making changes in my life as my awareness increases. That being said, for all too long I have knowingly and deliberately used offensive, immature and just plain potty language. When I hear others use certain swear words I find it to be incredibly ignorant sounding yet for some reason, lack of self control I suppose, I let the dirty words flow. So, I herby commit to no longer use offensive words. Now, just for clarity, I will more than likely hold onto Shit but all others are as good as gone. I am also going to work on losing my favorite “suck-it” response. I am just getting too old to pull it off anymore.
To read more of my full-on confessional and commitment check out the Pointe Newspaper later this week.

See-ya Potty Mouth
Labels: Personal Growth
I am a free spirit, growing in my creative desires. I write, read, sew, knit, craft and garden. I am striving to live a more natural life everyday for Mother Earth but mostly for the health and well being of my children. I am above all committed to my family, my hilarious husband and life partner of 15 years makes sure I laugh every day. We cloth diaper, babywear, share sleep, and generally live a child led existence. I am strongly against the idea that children must be socialized but believe vehemently in the idea that children need their parents close and always - until. Until they are ready to leave and explore. Lest you think my life is too tranquil and nothing but sitting and reading books while children play with handmade toys; I spend the better part of my days wiping noses and butts, cooking, cleaning, cooking and cleaning some more, figuring out where that (insert any bizarre item you can think of here) came from, and explaining why Mama needs a TO and nap. Above all, I am human. I fail myself and family everyday and every day I am committed to give tomorrow another shot. Because after all, tomorrow will provide another opportunity to smile and laugh!
