Days 6-7: Not curse for 2 days

I’ll be the first to admit I have a very dirty mouth. I’m no sailor, but when I’m on a roll, they just pour out like a waterfall. These words spew out of my mouth like word vomit and once I start, well it’s hard to stop. I want to go a few days without saying a “bad” word for a few reasons. 1. I’m a lady and ladies do not swear [or so  I’ve heard] 2. Cursing makes me seem less intelligent, poised and confidant, all things I take pride in being 3. I’m getting married and when I have children, I’d prefer them not have my filthy mouth.

Day 6 was a little tricky because it landed on a Tuesday, which to me, it’s about as painful as a Monday. Tuesday’s are usually very busy for me at work and my job induces a lot of stress, which is an environment conducive to bad words. My mode of transportation in the morning, which is the Metro, is also a breeding ground for the F bomb, and riding that in the morning and evening without so much as a sh** under my breath was quite hard to accomplish. I’ll be honest though, my friends, fans and followers, I did let one slip. I got a particularly “annoying” email and without thinking, subconsciously, I muttered “You have got to be f***ing kidding me!” As soon as the last syllable left my lips I slapped my hand to my mouth and grumbled. But instead of letting them fly and beginning again the next day, I kept my promise to celebrate the rest of the day curse free. And I succeeded in that!

The next day was hard too, but I was able to go throughout the day without letting even as much as a da** out of my glossy lips. I wanted to, oh so badly, when I was ran into on the Metro or when I realized it was raining and I had no umbrella, but instead, I shook my head and continued on. Day 7 ended rather uneventful, but it was a triumphant day for me, as I didn’t sound like a truck driver or sailor!

There is no way this mini-lution can become a staple [sometimes, it just feels good to say f***! and is entirely appropriate!] but it did inspire me to watch my language. The last impression I want to give is that I have a small vocabulary, I’m in need of anger management or I’m un-educated.

  1. So proud of you! I too need to curb my use of little four letter words. My daughter has made me promise to stop cursing so I am trying very hard for her – and for me. 🙂
