I’ve gently caught myself over the last few days wanting to wedge my words of wisdom into a conversation, but words are wasted unless the other person is ready and open to receiving them. Giving unsolicited advice is like feeding meat to a vegetarian – useless and even potentially harmful.
I’m glad I’m getting better at maintaining silence and allowing other people to find their own way and it empowers me to stay firmly grounded in the beliefs that serve me the most too.
I’M SPEAKING LESS … and being more.
