Before You Speak…Think!

Before You Speak...Think!


I have been realizing lately that I haven’t been thinking much before speaking, or reacting.  I’ve found myself a bit short lately in patience and compassion.  And I’ve really been battling with what to write on my weekly blog.

Consistency is the message I heard.  Try to be consistent if you commit to something.  I’ve tried and still am trying.  I’ve written 30 blogs at and another 15 here at  Not too shabby with my consistency.  But I’m finding my blogs boring and repetitive.  So I’m going to take a break.  I’m going to blog when I think I have something worth blogging about.

T-Is it true?  When I blog, I blog the truth.  It comes from my heart as I try to no longer veer in to my scary place…my head.  H-Is it helpful?  When I blog, I try to write about what I hope will help just one person get through what might be a trying time.  I-It it inspiring?  Hopefully.  I have a blessed life which I wish to share with all.  I try to share hope and optimism and light at the end of the tunnel.  I have shared my rigorous honesty that has inspired me and, hopefully, someone else.  N-Is it necessary?  Hmmm…  Again, if I can give one person in need a glimmer of hope today then, yes, it is necessary.  K-Is it kind?  I still find myself living by what Thumper’s mom said, “If you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all.”  Perhaps I need to work on this as honesty is the best policy and not always kind.  But I still find kindness the easier, softer way.  And if worded correctly can still get the message across.

Yes, I shall still blog as I hope my words can help another human being.  But I shall take some Dee time to center and get rejuvenated, working first on why am I finding myself short in patience and compassion.  First things first, yeah?  I want to be in a good space to share what has been so freely given to me.  I shall do a bit more service and work a little harder on my business.  I shall solidify relationships.  But most importantly, I shall work on me!

With that, my friends, have a mighty fine day!  With much aloha…Dee.
