Diary? Nothing that I wouldn't tell a client. Not everything that is written pertains to me or my life.
The things I see, hear...the people I talk to, all influence or impact my thoughts. Just saying!

The Courage to Speak

I walk around downtown on my breaks to the coffee shop, to the bank, to a new place to eat, and always wonder at my own lack of courage to speak. One day I can smile, say a few words, and the next, I'm like a wall. Silent and afraid. Why is it that when I see the person I see everyday as I pass, do I not say hello? Why can't I ask the question I want to ask? I want to, I have the opportunity, and really I don't even feel shy. Yet there is that something that stops me. What a difference it would be if Everyday I could do the same. Smile, encourage, give a sincere compliment, ask a friendly question and see where that would lead...It's like a little battle and too many times I give in to what is easy. Come in, get what I need, and leave. Silent. And then I regret and think of what I could have said...I pray that I can have more courage and muster up those words. Because if my words don't make someone else's day better, just speaking up sure would better my day knowing I did something that might affect a life in some way...
