Yesterday, I had an appointment to get my eyebrows done with my wonderful aesthetician Renata, who I’ve written about before. Not only is Renata a skincare guru, she’s also just a beautiful soul, and I love being able to chat with her about life just as much as I love what she does for my skin and my brows.
At this particular appointment, we started talking about the importance of thinking before you speak–because, as we all know, what we say to others can be so widely misinterpreted–and she told me that she tries to ask herself these three questions before she opens her mouth to say something:
“Is it kind?”
“Is it true?”
“Is it necessary?”
Isn’t that great? There have been so many times when I’ve answered a big, fat “nope!” to all of those questions. My new goal is to try to say “yes” to all three whenever possible.
