Word clutter.

The clutter of unnecessary  words and repetitive thoughts keep us from having the calm and relaxed life we want.

Too often in conversation we are not listening to the other person, just mentally rehearsing our next comment and polishing our point of view.
Before you offer your next bit of advice, argument or observation; ask yourself, “Is this kind and is this helpful?”
If the answer is no, keep silent.  
Don’t comment.  
Don’t suggest.
Don’t escalate an argument.
Allow there to be the space of silence.

Really, wouldn’t you rather be kind than right?
(If not, why is being right so important?)

 Just as you choose which physical items to have in your life,  mindfully choose which words you want in your conversations.
