Say what you need to say

Tonight at work I blurted out a joking comment without thinking (as is so typical for me). It was something regarding the monitor techs bugging me and how I was like, "the heifers need to leave me alone..." and it caught a guy I work with off-guard and he giggled, which then caught me off-guard because I forgot that not everyone is used to the way I talk. I like that he thought I was funny and I got to thinking about what the world would be like if we could each just say what it is we needed to say, no matter what it was and feel safe in the knowledge that we would be accepted...maybe even someone would think we're funny.

What do you think would happen in your life if you had the courage to start living without fear of simply saying what you need to say? Whether it's, "I'm sorry, I don't want to do this anymore." or "I never meant to do this, I'm sorry but I change my mind." or "I can't wait another minute to tell you that I'm crazy about you." or "I don't know how this is going to work, but I sure want to find out..." I think I'm going to start incorporating a little more of this into my life and see what happens. Who's with me?
