Think before you speak. We have all heard that phrase but I want to share a clever twist on it with you.
H - Helpful or encouraging
I - Inspiring
N - Necessary
K - Kind
Believe me there are lots of times I have to bite my tongue to give myself time to put this THINK before I speak into action but it is worth it. I especially find N tough but have found that holding back my opinions that do not matter have made a big difference in being helpful and not hurtful with my responses. I may not like your choice or your shoes or whatever but unless my telling you is going to save your life, stop you from losing your job or money, hurting someone else, etc., then my telling that person is only going to hurt them so unless my feedback is Necessary I will keep it to myself.
I hope you find this breakdown of the word think into a meaningful acronym as helpful as I do.
Since there is a good chance that my visitors may not visit on the final day, which is fast approaching, I thought I would take this time to say "Thank you" to everyone who has visited and all my followers. I appreciate everyone who has taken the time to comment and to follow my blog. Thanks!
