I have the dubious gift of a laser tongue.
In the plus column, that quality makes a lot of people laugh…and laughter, as we know, is the best medicine!
In the minus column, if not monitored carefully, my words can land on tender spots and cause a lot of pain.
I never want
to hurt another person. B'Dand... I know I have.
I feel that a large part of my purpose is allowing myself to be” A Voice Of Encouragement”.
I first used that term way back during my college days and it has stuck with me.
Nothing feels better to me than to see another’s eyes sparkle at the realization that they CAN. I believe that anything is possible.
I have learned that our obstacles are of our own making… all of the time. ( Personally, I had more than a few gray hairs before I could wrap my fragile psyche around that one…)
On this path we all share, and forge in our own way, each is at their individual point of reckoning and we on the outside cannot know what our fellow forgers have to manage internally. That is a very important thing to remember. Personally, I am challenged to place that knowing in front of my “talent” for laser response.
This morning, as I write this, I am reminded of the quote: “Be kinder that necessary. You do not know what the other person is going through today.”
"Kind" is always
a much higher service than "clever."
Having fun at anyone else’s expense is thoughtless and hurtful and never…NEVER
As I continue my journey, I aspire to place my emphasis on being a "Voice Of Encouragement”
even if I have to let an opportunity to crack up the room with a witticism go by…
We so often have an opportunity to live a higher purpose in what we don’t say.

LET IT BE FUN!
