Think Before You Speak

I am sure if asked, we have all been guilty at some point in our lives of saying something inappropriate. Or of speaking impulsively, without thinking. For the majority of people I believe this is not done with any real intention of offending. But for some individuals, it can be a trait that they pride themselves in. One of speaking ‘plainly’, without using the filter of their minds to consider, if what they are about to say will hurt someone’s feelings, or give offense. Indeed, they may believe that it is a quality to be admired. I have often heard the expression used. “Well, people will always know where they stand with me, as I always speak my mind”.

A forward thinking person, is someone who not only can be defined as an individual who plans for the future. But could also be described as a ‘Visionary’.

This vision can stretch from encompassing themselves and their loved ones. To the whole world.

Spiritually, we often talk about not living in the past or worrying about the future. That the only thing that is of real importance, is what is happening here and now, in the present. While I believe this to be true from a mindfulness and awareness of life point of view. It does not mean that we cannot make plans for the future.
