Our initial response to situations may not always be best, learning the art of pausing before reacting can be helpful.

January 11, 2011

I’m sure we’ve all had the experience where something is said in the heat of an argument, or MAYBE not when arguing simply when you’re not thinking.  You say the first thing that pops into your head, not giving any consideration to the words as they flow from your brain and out of your mouth.  How many times has this happened?  You say something and IMMEDIATELY want the words back?

If you take a moment and pause to consider your words carefully, you’ll find that events such as is described above will fade.  It’s important to remember that your thoughts expressed become how you’re known.  When you consider your words carefully, you’ll find people will be drawn to you because you’re a thoughtful person.

The words you speak become who you are.  Think carefully before saying something.
Be Happy!  Be Well!  Be Positive!
