Word Fast – Day 1

Today I started my 40-day word fast to help rid of my impulse to complain, speak negatively, criticize, or be judgmental towards others. I usually start my days off with such a positive outlook, feeling as though I’m on a mission to spread peace and love…BUT…it seems at some point in almost every day there’s some action of another that causes me to give side eye and question that person’s very existence. That’s not the right attitude, I know. Rather than cuss them profusely I simply deliver some witty sarcasm highlighting their ignorance, and then walk away complaining of their behavior every opportunity I have. Realizing the only person being affected by my response is me, it’s time to change things up.

I may not be able to share my complete 40-day journey to self-improvement with you, but perhaps this may encourage some who’ll find benefit in their own word fast.

I’m reading the @YouVersion plan ‘The Forty-Day Word Fast’. Check it out here:

Psalm 141:3 Set a guard over my mouth, Lord; keep watch over the door of my lips.

You know, writing about myself has always been a challenge. It's not that I'm unsure of who I am but rather I like people to discover me on their own. I will tell you this much - I'M REAL! I guess that's all you need to know for a first approach; stick around and you'll understand the power behind that statement. What I do is another story! I embrace life hoping to live my purpose as a mother, daughter, sister, confidante and friend; I laugh, cry, and support; I admire, like and love; I listen, read and write. Most importantly, I have faith and thank God for all of me. My intent is to inspire others using my gifts and "Don't Forget the Half" reminds me to cast nothing aside. Want to know more? Discover along with me as I live my life out loud.
