I Have a Butt and . . .

Home Inspector with Complete Home Inspections, Inc. TN Lic#050

    One of the things that I learned in my past session of bold is there is no but. Yes, we all have butts and in my world, but is no longer in my vocabulary. I am learning to replace the word but with and. But is a negative word and it negates every word and statement that precedes it even if the words or statement was said in a positive manner. Now that I am cognizant of this, I am amazed at how often folks use this word in everyday conversation.
    I have learned that the Universe is constantly listening to our thoughts, self talk and words and delivers to us what we think and say. It is my intention to replace the “B” word with and. I am now making a conscious effort to replace “B” word with “and” and it is making a difference in my life. When I inadvertently use the "B" word, I stop, rephrase and say the sentence correctly.

And that my friends, is my 2¢’s worth for this morning.

Good morning Michael. I totally agree, not a good thing when I hear it, as you know nothing good is coming.

Hi Michael.  Buts and butt heads suck the positive energy out of a room.

Michael, I love it! I am a pretty positive persona and surprised how often I use the "b" word. I intend to use "and" instead! Way to put what you're learning into practice!

That's the right attitude, Michael. Getting rid of negative words is a nice way to succeed with your goals and objectives in life.

Michael good luck in replacing "but" with "and", I don't think I could successfully constantly do that.

Michael, I noticed I was using "but" a lot a few years ago, and I try not to use it, and I must say, at times it just comes out :)

I have to agree with you and I also try to replace BUT with AND, and sometimes it can be challenging.
