Listening to myself

I am trying very hard to learn to listen to myself a little better--in a lot of ways. To rest when I am tired, and eat when I am hungry...(OK, I don't have much trouble with that one)...or to even just go to the restroom when I need to and not make one last call or finish one last task first.

There's more than that to it, though. I am trying to pay attention to what I am saying, both out loud and to myself, and to keep it positive and constructive. I suppose I am trying to turn off the cynical, sarcastic voice in my head that talks so 'fresh'. Good words and good thoughts can only have a good effect on everything else, right?
