How much sense are we making?
Have you ever noticed how many things we say that might not make sense to other people?
How about "Anyway....", "I mean....", "Let me tell you something..."? We say these phrases and words without realizing, sometimes, we don't need them. I mean..... See what I mean? We say extra things we don't need. I have a friend who uses the phrase "....in terms of...." fairly frequently. For example, she is telling me about the new pants she found: "I wanted to get new jeans from Old Navy but I wasn't sure if I would like them....in terms of...." But what does that mean? And is it necessary? Maybe we should look at words and other filler-phrases like that as "ummm"s-----strive to eliminate them from our conversations. They keep us from getting to the meat of the matter.
Let's say what we mean and mean what we say-----I mean it!
