I’ve started thinkSing

Rituals are markers that help us stay on track and not lose our way.

My morning rituals include a little litany that I say out loud every day.  Part of it includes what I call my “T-H-I-N-K” affirmations.  It goes like this…

I will think before I speak, by asking myself:

  • T – Is it true?
  • H – Is it helpful?
  • I – Is it inspiring?
  • N – Is it necessary?
  • K – Is it kind?

If what I’m about to say doesn’t past that screening process, the game plan is to keep my mouth shut. (In the interest of full disclosure, unfortunately, I don’t always live up to my ideals! Pray for me.)

Recently, I’ve committed to making the world a better place. I amended my T-H-I-N-K litany and added an “S” – Is it short.”

Now I’m thingSing before I speak. I hope it catches on.

The ONE THING for today: You’re not ready to speak until you’re able to say it in as few words as possible.

  1. I thinks you are right… I just need to get better at it. I still have your 3 ribbons framed and hanging in my room. God bless you both. Give my regards to all your family. I hope Lee and family are safe.
