I was writing an email message last week and - after spending a few minutes laboring over a couple sentences - I deleted everything I'd just typed. It wasn't that my words were unkind, or untrue, or anything like that. But as I re-read them I asked myself, Do I really need to say this? And the answer was, No.The thing is, last week's experience wasn't unique. Whether it's in an email or a blog post, sometimes I find myself saying things I just don't need to say. Maybe I re-read what I've written and realize I'm trying to justify myself or prove myself right and I don't like my motive. So I delete. Other times my review reveals a sense of pride which needs to be reigned in. Or a pity party which needs some truth-talk. *wink* Whatever problem I discover, I am always thankful for my delete button, and the ability to move forward as if I'd never written those words. Now, if only I could find a delete button for the times when I speak before I think. *ahem* Or maybe I should just write everything down before I say it. Hmmmm. I'm not alone in this issue, am I?
