Self-Portrait Challenge: Resolutions ~ To Be Impeccable with My Word


This is one of the Four Agreements. On the Ruiz website, they offer this description:

1. Be Impeccable With Your Word: Speak with integrity. Say only what you mean. Avoid using the word to speak against yourself or to gossip about others. Use the power of your word in the direction of truth and love.

At the centre of this resolution is my desire to be true to myself and to others and to only say yes to things that I honestly can commit to. If I am impeccable with my words, perhaps I won't have to eat them.

I love this resolution. I say things to my husband at times I don't mean. I just say them to push his buttons and I really shouldn't.

A noble resolution, well-depicted by your photos. Best of luck with keeping (and not eating) your words.

So fun and very wise at the same time Jamie, interesting interpretation. I agree, our words mean nothing if we use them without integrity. Wonderful post!

Wonderful pictures, Jamie, and an admirable resolution! You do have the most amazing smile, and you remind me a lot of an old friend of mine, Maggie, who I haven't seen for years...
Lovely to see you, and I will remember your resolution next time I'm about to open my mouth before thinking! ;)

Thank You!
