When I stop BEfore words I am able to really think about the words I want to write.
When I stop BEfore words when I speak it can BE an entirely different kettle of cranberries.
I don’t DO this enough and I always regret it. I am, at least, more aware.
And I listen more, to myself, BEcause I find it is the Very Best Way to discover what is at the heart of my talk talk talking.
Plus, I have that sort of time.
To imagine how my words might BE heard, received, or understood.
NOT everyone GETS everyone else. This is what is BEing lost in the techno-gadgetry World.
Subtlety. Intent. Emphasis. Depth.
When I stop BEfore words I am better informed BEcause I am aware and conscious enough to STOP.
Often, when I reflect on something I’ve expounded on and on and on about, only AFTER DO I sense the urgency in me that is willing to pour itself out on anyone who will listen.
When I stop BEfore words, though, I can reflect “in advance” and guide myself gently toward DOing the Right Thing and NOT running long off into the Land of Willy-Nilly Jabbering.
This is the gift of learning myself, for better and for NOT so…
I love you, Currie
