Thoughts from Jess

by Jess on January 22, 2014 · 1 Comment

We all know the saying- “treat others as you wish to be treated”- but how often are you truly living by that golden rule?  Do you talk about friends and family the way you hope they talk about you?

When we purge gossip from our relationships we are able to invest more time in seeing the value of the people in our lives.  One of my favorite proverbs is “The words of the tongue should have three gatekeepers:  Is it true?  Is it kind?  Is it necessary?

Let’s all keep these three gatekeepers in mind as we converse with others.  Use kind words that influence the people around you and inspire them to speak with the same level compassion.

xoxo

    love your proverb, is it true? you were planning this while teaching here in G’ville; is it kind? that I shared with you my heart and studio, teaching and training; is it necessary? that my heart feel sad; i wish we could have talked more…..miss you – good luck with your future adventure
