If you can see your path laid out in front of you step by step, you know it’s not your path. Your own path you make with every step you take. That’s why it’s your path.-—Joseph Campbell

carltonThis morning’s early morning awareness:

For a year I posted a morning quote on my Facebook page.  Someone else’s wise words about my own thoughts to carry with me through the day.

Another’s words rather than my own mindless “reaction” words.  Those defensive, caustic, cynical, judgmental words I’ve accumulated over the years.

This year I want to pay attention.  Use my own words with care.  Listen before speaking, to myself as well as those around me.

I’m practicing here.  Thanks for being my audience.
