At the risk of sounding like Forrest Gump, My momma always says "Think"!


This crazy world that we live in can be pretty mean sometimes.  Bad things happen everyday, and sometimes... they happen to us.  



Before I open my mouth (or start typing on my keyboard), I always try to remember to STOP & THINK.  If I honestly can't answer in the affirmative for all five questions of THINK, I keep my thoughts & opinions to myself.  Okay, okay... I may share them with my hubby or my momma (I'm not a total Pollyanna).


I know a lot of you will disagree with me on this, and that's okay.  We have our own personalities and opinions, we all feel different about every situation and that is what makes life so darn interesting!  


As a REALTOR® and a Human Being, I try to follow the Golden Rule: "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you", instead of the option to "Do unto others as they DO to you"!


Wishing you all a wonderful week filled with positive energy and great moments!

What a wonderful way to start my work week!  To THINK is  to be an inspiration to others!  Thank you for taking the time to share this with all of us.

Good morning, Amy Hahn I agree with your thoughts on the word THINK.... BUT, we also must acknowledge that there ARE exceptions where information must be disseminated that may not be "nice" but it's necessary for others to read....just saying!!

Thank you, I understand and agree with you.  My exception right now to the "Is it Nice" is "Would it protect someone"?  

I still feel that often times, things are said that would be better left unsaid.

Good morning Amy.  My issue is that I often open the mouth and remove any doubt.

Good morning Amy and I wish I had read this earlier. I should know better than to respond to some of the things I read on AR without "thinking" first and when I haven't eaten breakfast.

Great advice!  I have been trying more and more to do things to just be nice.  We do not want that to become a rare commodity in this world.
