Que Sera, Sera

Once again, I am putting off the writing of an actual post...!

via SV

When I was just a little girl/boy,
I asked my mother, "What will I be ?
Will I be pretty/handsome ?
Will I be rich ?"
Here's what she said to me :
"Que Sera, Sera
Whatever will be, will be,
The future's not ours to see,
What will be, will be."

Then I grew up and fell in love,
I asked my sweetheart, 'what lies ahead?
Will we have rainbows, day after day?
Here's what my sweetheart said:
Que sera, sera,
Whatever will be, will be
The future's not ours to see.
Que sera, sera,
What will be, will be

Now I have children of my own
They ask their mother what will I be
Will I be handsome, will I be rich?
I tell them tenderly
"Que Sera, Sera
Whatever will be, will be,
The future's not ours to see,
What will be, will be.
Que Sera, Sera"

Before you speak..

Before you speak, ask yourself, is it kind, is it necessary, is it true, does it improve on the silence?

Before you speak, ask yourself, will what I say cause damage to a relationship with people important to me? Which is more important to me; to say what I want to say, or to continue a positive relationship?

Before you speak, ask yourself, will what I'm going to say be considered a criticism? If so, shouldn't I wait until a more suitable time and place? Shouldn't I say it in private?

Before you speak, ask yourself, will what I plan to say bring sunshine to a dim place? Or will it bring darkness? Will it open a window of opportunity for someone or some idea? Or will it close a door in someone's face? Will it create or kill?

Communication has consequences. You may say, "I take it back." But you really cannot. It's better that you don't 'give it' in the first place. It's better that you think before you speak.

You don't need to know all of your answers in advance to solve a problem or
to reach your goal. But you must have a clear idea of the problem or the
goal you want to reach in advance.

Everyone who achieved success in a great venture, solved their problems as
they came to them. They helped themselves. And they were helped through
powers known and unknown to them at the time they set out on their voyage.
They kept going regardless of the obstacles they met.

Don't procrastinate when faced with a difficult problem. Break your problem
into parts, and handle one part at a time. All you have to do is know where
you're going. The answers will come to you of their own accord.

It's the job you never start that takes longest to finish.
