I say "Your vibe attracts your tribe" a lot, which I stole from Ralph Smart, a psychologist.
I say "yep", "yeah", and "yikes"! a lot too, a dead giveaway to what part of the U.S, I am from, lol.
I use the word "glad" a lot more than most people, instead of saying I am happy you had a nice day, happy you passed a test, got a clean bill of health,etc., I am always glad.
When frustrated I often say "Jesus Christ on a bicycle". Or, I will say "I'm gobsmacked", a word I love which I got from a British friend.
I will tell people "I am praying for your highest and best good", since what we want is not always what is best for us.
Empath-wise, I use "Not mine and not worth it" and chant it until I calm down, when I start to feel other people's dramas.
A vocabulary using 'I understand' and 'I am grateful' is a great way of opening people's hearts, I like it!
Something I have found extremely helpful for me has been to say to myself (often aloud when no one is there) 'Can you believe it!' When things goes wrong or people have hurt me or treated me unfairly. This helps me to move from hurt to humour, like being incredulous that people could even contemplate or even conceive of behaving in such a way , as in this is so ridiculous it's funny! And then when things go wrong 'can you believe it!'
helps me to laugh at Murphys law (if things can go wrong they usually do!) This helps me a lot to turn frustration, hurt and anger into their antagonists, humour lightening up any situation.
Light and love to all R
