Potty Mouth Mich

Yep, sad but true. That is me! What comes out of my mouth sometimes is just awful, I logically know that swearing does not sound nice and is totally unnecessary but at the moment it is just part of my make up.

Anyone else with the same problem?

I was at Church Sunday night and a friend did a really good talk on making Godly choices and once of the areas she spoke about was swearing and basically she asked why it was necessary! I can not come up with one good answer as to why I should do it, that says something!

She gave the example that she would not take her dog out for a walk and then clear up his poo and with the same hand put her fingers in her mouth, therefore why do we allow such foul things to come out of our mouths and then try to glorify God. The two things just do not go together. This rang a cord with me, so from now on I will be trying to be more conscious of my swearing and to cut it down considerably.

At work on Tuesday I caught myself three times swearing, whereas yesterday and today there has not been once. Maybe some of it is about the company I am in, I do find that I mirror people and the way they relate. That does not say a lot for my work environment does it?

So I am blogging about this to make a commitment to seriously cut down, if not cut out my swearing. It will be better for everyone in the long run.
