I’m still buzzing from the music high of seeing Lady Gaga in concert this weekend at the Staples Center.

Yup. I wore a blonde wig, a cape and some funkytown glasses!

Whether you’re into Gaga or not, she’s an amazing performer. Her dancers are beyond (smokin’ hot, diverse in shape and color, talented, committed, expressive, unique) and she leaves it all on the floor, without apologies.

That type of grit and bold self-expression is incredible to witness.

One of the most inspiring moments of the night was when she paused on stage and said, “Five years ago I was still waiting tables in New York City. Don’t ever give up on your dreams.”

Beautiful, right?

And with that, let’s roll into this week’s new episode of MarieTV.

Have you ever said something stupid; something you wish you could take back?

Stress can turn us all into “little monsters” (ha ha) who say some nasty things we later regret.

But is it possible to prevent those “foot in mouth” moments from happening in the first place? And if the damage has been done, what’s the best way to clean it up?

Watch this week’s episode to learn a simple, but effective practice to stop stupid things from flying out of your mouth, no matter what’s going on.

And for those times you just can’t stop yourself, use my word-for-word scripts to undo the damage in a straightforward, honest way.

DIVE DEEPER: Forgiveness is a gift you give yourself to live a more full life. But it isn’t easy. Here’s how to forgive when you can’t (or shouldn’t) forget.

Now unless you’re from another planet, I know you’ve had your own “foot in mouth” moments in life.

What happened and how did you undo the damage?
