Are you good at holding your tongue, or do you need to say what is on your mind?
When I was a kid, I didn’t talk very much. However, as I’ve gotten older, it is harder to hold my tongue. There have been times lately that I have had to choose my battles wisely. For example, when I’m on safari, I have to try not to anger the hippos because they are crazy and spiteful.
(If you missed the safari post about the hippos. . . . it’s here. http://chasingdestino.com/2014/05/26/what-would-joan-jett-do/)
They are waiting for me to make mistakes. I’m just waiting for them to get tired of playing games. I can outlast these hippos without saying one word. Occasionally, a “Whatever” might slip out but I try to keep it all inside until I’m not on safari anymore.
