Just a helpful reminder that has become quite useful for me lately:
Before you speak, ask yourself three questions:
Is it true?
Is it necessary?
Is it kind?
If not, it’s wise to keep quiet and continue to observe. It’s never been a bad idea to be highly observant. Remain vigilant of everything and be mindful of what is being said, done, and most importantly how things make you feel. We cannot control what goes on externally but we have total control over our inner peace. Be protective of your inner peace. Keep watch over it the same as you would your most prized possession. If people are uncomfortable with your silence, then let them. You don’t have to feel compelled to do anything against your will.
Love and Light,
“Mistakes are proof that you’re trying…”
Happy Monday to all! As you go about your day, remember not to take yourself too seriously. You will make mistakes and guess what? Life will still go on. The earth will keep moving and you will be okay. As a matter of fact you are okay. It’s proof that you are at least trying. We’re talking about those mistakes that are not detrimental to someone’s life or have detrimental consequences. Just so we’re clear. Most of the time we perceive things to be worse than they actually are. It’s all about perception in most cases. Seeing mistakes as opportunities can make a huge difference in your outlook on life. Depending on the situation you may find that what started off as a “mistake” actually turned out to be “right”. Some “mistakes” are funny. Laugh at yourself sometimes. None of us are perfect and NOONE is exempt from making mistakes. Coming to that understanding will be one of the most freeing things that you can do for yourself.
Love and Light,
