Three Little Questions

Visiting with my mother (87 years old), she reminded me of some advice her mother gave her. If you are going to say something about someone else, ask these three questions;

Is it true?

Is it necessary?

Is it kind?

If the answer isn’t yes to all three then reconsider what you are about to say.

I am not sure where the questions come from but are at least 80 years old and for my money they still are a great reminder in 2015. The pause to consider the questions, the answers and then the reflection should temper any mean spiritedness, vengefulness, or nasty peer pressure and make the moment better.

Make Today Remarkable, by being sure of your words,

B
