Okay, I promised to do better. But I didn't. (sigh) Maybe once a week is the best I can do these days. So here I am again.
Anyway, here's what's on my mind lately: gossiping. I have noticed lately that I have been doing more than my share of talking about others. It started when my coworker wasn't doing her job....and I had legitimate reasons to complain. But I have really noticed that it has become a very bad habit of mine, both at school and at the deli. I have to say, working at the deli makes feeding my bad habit easy. They love to gossip, both dish it out and hear it. With eager ears to hear and eager mouths to share "the latest", I can just jump right in.. But that's not excuse for participating. A couple of times I have been bitten by people gossiping about ME.....and all I can think is, well, it serves you right. What goes around comes around.
So I am making a change. Just like going on a diet means conciously changing what you eat and how you shop and how you exercise. I am going to "give up" gossiping. As my mother used to say, if I can't say something nice, I'm not going to say anything at all. I'm not proud of my behavior and I need to stop.
This is not the only "better person" change I am putting in place. But it's a big one.
What are you working on these days?
Have a good Monday. I'll be back before Thanksgiving.
