Honestly Ashamed

Today’s Thought: People tend to be generous when sharing their nonsense, fear and ignorance.

When I set up this blog last year, my aim was to be more honest. Over the past few months, I have lost sight of that goal and have fallen into habits that I had previously broken. I am ashamed to say I have dropped back into the habit of bitching once more. I really should know better as it makes me miserable!

Bitching feeds negativity and I have certainly been feeling negative! Even worse, my negativity is fuelling the general negativity amongst my team – a team that up until recently had been largely positive. I could ruminate on the damage I have done – I really could dwell and languish in the muddy puddle of my shame. Or I could set about putting it right.

I must tell my fellow bitch that our behaviour must stop. It’s not kind, it’s not professional and it isn’t helping us achieve our goals. Worse than that, it’s creating a mist of poison throughout our organisation and it won’t be long before people realise that we are the ones releasing it into the atmosphere.

Dr Steve Maraboli says: Be cautious with what you feed your mind and soul. Fuel yourself with positivity and let that fuel propel you into positive action.

It might not be the new year just yet, but it is certainly time to hit the reset button on my honesty bid and set the intention to be far more kind and positive with the words that come out of my mouth. I must remember that great minds discuss ideas; average minds discuss events and small minds discuss people!
