Before You Talk, Listen

Before you talk – Listen
Before you react – Think
Before you criticize – Wait
Before you pray – Forgive
Before you quit – T R Y

I found that today whilst I was looking for inspiration. I had already selected five, so I decided to use this in the title and at the beginning. All too often we open our mouths before thinking, and then we walk away, burning bridges. We throw away what could have been a fabulous friendship. If something is too hard, we give up. Robert the Bruce, after watching a spider on the wall trying to build a web, realised that if at first you don’t succeed, try, try again. Then he went out and kicked the butts of the English.

Have a great weekend and listen, think, wait, forgive, try.
