Over the years I have found that the quality of my life is dependent upon the questions I ask myself. If I ask myself questions like, “Why did this happen to me?” or “Why did God let this happen?” my life changes very little. On the other hand when I ask myself questions like, “How can I see this through the eyes of love?” or “What would my angel say?” my life improves dramatically.
Gossip can be a very corrosive influence in a person’s life. This past year a number of teenagers committed suicide because of viscous comments posted on line by other students. The saying, “Sticks and stones can break your bones but words can never hurt you” isn’t necessarily true.
Imagine how your life would change if before you spoke you asked yourself, “What would my angels say?” What if for a day you only spoke words of love? How would you feel by the end of the day?
I have yet to regret words I have spoken in love but angry words usually come back to haunt me.
