instead of complaining to myself about the fact that i haven’t anything in ages, i thought i focus on something a bit more positive. being the critical bastard that i am, i can’t help but think about all the little things that make something less than “perfect”. the irony is that i am not a ‘perfectionist’ by nature but just a sloppy critic that gets no where with my criticalness. alas, i will be making a violent effort to change my vocabulary by removing the word ‘but’ out of my daily usage. the word is a passive aggressive way for me to be critical and i think it’s doing more damage than i have ever care to think about. anyway, it’s time to move to a more positive outlook on life and it begins with words.
