Words Of Wisdom



Sometimes it's best to pause for a few seconds before speaking. This will help to keep your tongue from getting ahead of your mind, which will in turn help you avoid putting a foot in your mouth.

Now go forward and be tactful!

  10. Totally agree! Sometimes, I think "Why the hell did I say that" and sometimes I'm glad I waited. I just wish though that others would do the same before they speak to me! Oh well, we can't have it all!
