Be mindful of the words that flow from your mouth. One day they might flow back in and choke you. Just because you’re free to speak your mind, it doesn’t make you invincible to the impact of the things you say to others. Freedom of speech comes with responsibilities. If you can’t be responsible, then it’s best to keep your nasty thoughts hidden in your journal and don’t ever let it leave your mouth. Think before you speak is an adage that we should all live by.
LIFE IS TOO SHORT FOR LONG PITY PARTIES. GET BUSY LIVING, OR GET BUSY DYING.
“True wisdom means respecting the simple things we do, for they can take us where we need to go”
-Paulo Coelho, ‘Aleph’
These days, living sometimes feels like being in a race. It’s a mad rush to get from one place to another. There’s always something that needs to be achieved in order to justify our presence in this world. But that has to stop. It’s time to start being in the moment and bask in the glory of simply being alive- breathing and thanking God for this life.
