Second Guessing

I keep finding myself second guessing things I want to say or write and that may very well be a good thing. Now that I’ve returned to using Facebook i have made the determination not to demean or fight with anyone. Guarding myself from harsh speech means that I now often wrote a reply only to back up and delete it. In fact, I find myself asking why I feel a need to reply or post something at all. Again, this is a good thing.

What I’m really seeing is that, mossy of the things we think and say are unnecessary and based on a house of cards that we ourselves haven’t even taken the time to stack.

May I be ever circumspect in my speech and mindful of its effects.
