Pocket Perspectives

I try to pause and reflect before saying or doing something….before reacting….to  keep these criteria in mind….

Is is expressed without harshness?
Is it well intended?
Is it beneficial?
Is it timely?
Is it true?

And if what I’m about to say or do doesn’t meet those criteria, to use restraint in choosing whether it should be said or done…..and usually I find it better to wait….

And a shorter version of that…..

this is sometimes referred to as “wise speech”…..
reflecting, considering and making a wise choice…..
is it kind?….is it helpful?

Another version of this “page,”with a sky photo: “Wise Speech: Is it kind, is it helpful?”

About teeceecounsel

Who am I really? Can that be defined yet? Probably by the time I'm long gone and all the pieces of my activities are compiled and analysed then you can know what you want to know about me. Meanwhile, I write. Not because I love writing but because I love people. I love to care and love to share. I'm a deep thinker and I love to believe in the impossible. The ideal is attainable and a shot at it must be given. Don't say 'It won't work' rather ask 'how will it work? Nobody is ever doomed unless they made the choice. To resist good and to adopt evil is already doom. To loose hope is to choose doom but to believe that every step is a passing phase leading towards your hope is to choose progress. I may go on and on but my posts say it all. I don't force you to agree, I only say enjoy!

  3. Very wise words you have here this morning, and beautifully said.

  4. If only I had discovered this earlier in life. I do it now, but when I was younger….not so much. 😦

    • It’s good to know that you do it now. Let’s hope that even young people learn these things early enough. Knowing things like this and doing them ensures harmony and warmth among people. It beautifies life and relationships.

  5. Wonderful wise words of wisdom; thanks for sharing! 🙂
