Often times we don’t ask ourselves five simple questions before opening our mouths – Is it True? Is it Helpful? Is it Inspiring? Is it Necessary? Is it Kind? – even though we probably should.
While I can’t say I do it all the time, I make an serious effort to think before I express myself. Many of us have seemingly forgotten how powerful or painful speech can be; especially online. In our digital age people say ANYTHING they want without seeing the impact of their words.
Take time to ask if what you’re saying or writing is True, Helpful, Inspiring, Necessary and Kind…you just might surprise yourself!
