Is it wrong for me to love grammar so much?

I loved reading the post reached by clicking on this post's title, and the nearly 500 comments it occasioned. Many comments are substantive, and often I laughed out loud reading them. Language is so much fun! I enjoy knowing the "right way" to use words and grammar, and am equally pleased to laugh at my own pedantry.

Actions Speak Loudly

My actions tell me exactly what I want; if I truly want something, I take actions toward it. Or I don't really want it.

Don't "Should" on Yourself

When I let go of what and who I think I should be, I can accept who I am and become who I am meant to be.
