Hindsight

Hello All,

Why is it that we can see things so clearly after they have already played out and it to late to change the damage we have done. I could use some clarity when I am at my breaking point and I am teetering on the line of going to far. Sometimes I am so angry and I tell myself don’t say another word because you are going to regret it but what happens I open my big fat mouth and daggers fly out of it.¬† cngh9t0p I know that I am doing it at the time because there is that little moment where I know I should not say anything but then one little thing sends me over the edge and before I know it the words have escaped from my mouth.

I am participating in this OBS (online bible study) and we are reading the book “Keep It Shut” (what to say, how to say it, and when to say nothing at all) I have read the first two chapters and I found the first chapter to be insightful and it grabbed my attention. I have learned that we are always so unaware of how our words can hurt other when it comes to family. I never really thought of it like that until I read it, I have to agree because we could care a less what our family thinks of us because they are stuck with us. On the other hand non family members we are more gracious and courteous with because we want them think highly of us. I also am learning that our words our very powerful and have consequences that can last a while in the people we are talking to. I look forward to reading more chapters of this book and learning some very helpful tips and exchanging some stories with some new friends along the way.

Until next time,

Priscilla

A New Year, A New Me

It has been a couple months since my last post. I have had some pretty hard times since my last post and I did not really feel like posting anything since I felt tha81c86f2727926d650de5fa5c77cfe1b8t things were crumbling around me. I had a good friend ask me if I had ever thought of participating in online bible study and I had always thought about it but never followed through. I figured that I would let her send me some information and check it out and decide after that. It turns out that it is was nice and I jumped in feet first. I must say that I am very pleased with everything and I have participated in one online bible study via facebook and have already signed up for another bible study that starts in 6 days. Then in 6 weeks me and two friends will be traveling to Normal, IL to attend a national conference that consists of workshops and two main sessions hosted by 2 popular speakers. I am looking forward to it and I am also looking forward to a new year full of awesome opportunities and a new improved me.

I kicked off my new year by changing my hair color and got a really nice new hairstyle (I have included a pic below) and I10898099_10153590816754012_479157612371252638_n have recently received some good news that has lifted my spirits. I am sorry that this post is so short but I am going to try and keep up with it on a regular basis and post at least two or three times a week. Until next time I wish everyone well and will see you again soon.

Thanks,

Priscilla
