"Don't Gobblefunk Around with Words."

It's no surprise that I love Roald Dahl. 

It's also no surprise that I hope to infuse him into my new home in some way. I would really like to learn to sew, so I can make fun pillow covers... How cute would Dahl's words be on a pillow that actually matched my decor... I must take learning to sew on my 101 list seriously.. I have too many DIY projects I want to tackle that involve sewing... meh

I love this quote by Roald Dahl because it makes me think about how people communicate. So many times people are scared to say what they really think (believe it or not, sometimes me) or tell someone how they really feel (vulnerability can be really scary...).

Then there are those people that don't think before they speak and once the words are out there, you can't truly take them back. It's like toothpaste - once you squeeze it out, it's nearly impossible to put it back in the tube.

My challenge to you is to be more intentional with your words - Say what you mean and mean what you say.
