Well, it's finally Friday and I've got to get out to the grocery store later this morning. My usual schedule for grocery shopping was put on hold with the extra-wintery weather this week, but the temperature is supposed to rise above freezing today, so I'm heading out.
Before I make my trek for supplies through the Frozen North I'm posting about how I'm doing with my New Year's goals so far. I think I'm going to write a post concerning my goals for 2011 every few weeks or so on Fridays so that I can look back and see how I'm doing and where I need to work a bit harder to achieve my goals.
Today the goal that I have on my mind is the one I made concerning my role as "Partner" (remember those 5 "Ps") - talking to my Dear Professor with a Low and Relaxed Tone as often as I can. Well, it hasn't been easy. However, one result of my working on this has been to realize just how tense I am, especially in my neck. It's no wonder that even my "happy" voice tends to sound high and shrill. During the day I have to make it a point to stop and let go of the tension in my neck.
Maybe I need a visit to Phoebe Dinsmore.
Hmmm...maybe tone of voice is not quite everything.
