So here goes. I have a little secret. I have a potty mouth. Whew…there it is. I’ve outed myself.
In fits of anger, frustration, confusion, I can release a melodic symphony of profane words, the likes of which can sometimes leave my husband, who hates it by the way, scratching his head. It’s been nagging me that I do it for some time now. I come from a long line of cussers. I tell my husband, I think my parents cussed when I was in the womb. My mom, now a God fearing Christian, gave the habit up a long time ago and would never do such a thing now. My dad, rest his beautiful soul, cussed until the day he left here. I could swear I heard him cussing when they closed the casket.
But it’s time. I’ve known for a while that I’ve outgrown it. It no longer serves me. The thing that used to once bring me so much joy has morphed into no more than simply ‘a bad habit.’
Having traversed more ground on my spiritual journey and now having wisdom and insight into the fact that we are all energy and we are either moving toward the light or away from it, at all times, I’m no longer willing to let what is simply a bad habit to drag me further away from the light. I’m no longer willing to let a bad habit, or anything for that matter—be it people, music, my choice of entertainment— to lower my vibration from its highest state, which is love, to lower states. As I stated before, typically I only swore when I was in states of anger, frustration or confusion. Now I see that it only served to activate my ego and further chain me to those states. I’m not willing to suffer the loss any more. It’s just not worth it.
What I can do in those moments is be conscious of where my state of energy is. If I’m angry, I can chose love. If I’m frustrated, I can choose patience. If I’m confused, I can choose clarity. And I can allow my words to reflect those higher states and further shift my energy. That simple.
So instead of saying shit, damn, hell, I will choose the more positive actions of love, patience and clarity. If someone does something I don’t like, I will choose to love them instead. If things aren’t going my way, I will choose patience and understanding. When I’m confused, I will ask for wisdom and clarity. It took only seconds for me to see, it’s a no brainer. Why wouldn’t I do that? I get the added benefit of silencing my ego and raising my vibration at the same time. That increase in vibration is enough to transform any negative state I’m dealing with into something more positive.
Habits are hard to break I know, but I’m confident that in replacing the negative habit with the choice of a more positive frame of mind and more positive words, Law of Attraction will do the rest.
My husband is going to be so #^@!^*&% proud!
One for the road.
