I was so touched when I viewed a short clip on YouTube showing a blind man with a sign that read, “I am blind, please help”.  He would get an occasional toin tossed in his cup.  But then a passerby stops and writes something on this sign.  All of a sudden “everyone” is dropping in coins.  When the passerby returned, the blind man asked what did she write on his sign?  It read :”It’s a beautiful day, but I can’t see it”.  The obvious lesson is not what you say but how you say it.  Have you ever been in a situation where you wish you could take back your spoken words?  After you’ve had time to ponder, you say to yourself “I wish I had said this instead of that….”  Been there?  So have I and many times.  We need not berate ourselves as we so tend to do but always strive to be better the next opportunity.  Take a deep breath before speaking or if you’re angry, maybe try not to speak at all.  Ask the other party to give you a moment.  You’ll be surprised to find they will.  Then take the time to collect your thoughts.  Take the time to use the “right” words in a situation because you’ll never know how what you say may change another’s life and even yours!
