What We Should Strive For

Have you ever had to not say what you want to say? 
OK, that question isn’t even fair. 
We all have.

Often times the most effective thing we can do in a situation is to not say what we want to say.  To hold our tongue. 

Saying the right words at the right time is so important but not saying the wrong words when everything inside of you tells you to say them is one of the most difficult things we have to do as human beings. 

To be an encourager, a dealer of hope, and a creator of moments you will often times be called upon to say the right words but many times it was what you will choose not to say that will have a lasting effect.

Silence will sometimes allow you to continue to build positive and lasting relationships.  Be aware of when you may need to leave some things unsaid. 

I’m cheering for you.
