I have noticed that life seems to move in lessons. That is, I seem to continually receive gentle reminders that I am supposed to be working on a specific aspect of my life. At present, I believe my lesson is to control my negative speech. This is a quote that I have on my website and on the wall in my room.
"Speech can indicate one's character so be careful about the words you utter. A slip while walking can be repaired, but a slip while talking can cause irreparable injury."
