Chapter 4, Page 28, Book 10

If it is not truthful and not helpful, don't say it.
If it is truthful and not helpful, don't say it.
If it is not truthful and helpful, don't say it.
If it is truthful and helpful, wait for the right time.

Buddha

TRUTH

the true or actual state of a matter

Sometimes the truth can be beautiful and other times the truth can be down right ugly. The truth is righteous and powerful.

We all would like to know the truth of the matter, but sometimes the truth hurts. Some times things sound too good to be true.

Here are some very good truths full of wisdom for us all.

Much of the time we get stressed and worked up over stuff that in the grand scheme of things really doesn't matter.

Just say never and see what happens! To avoid the jolt when life's surprises come your way, be prepared by being open-minded and maintain the a positive outlook

It's wonderful to be self-confident and self-sufficient, however, it's not all about you. There is nothing more monotonous than hearing someone talk about themselves all the time

Relationships are more important than any material goods you may acquire on the road to success.

Your happiness and state of mind are your responsibility. Our relationships enhance our lives and make them richer, but they do not make us happy. We do.

It's important to be a person of honor. Your good word and deeds inspire trust and confidence from family, friends and employers

We are all only too human. All of us slip sometimes and make mistakes. Holding grudges and past hurts only serves to prevent us from enjoying life

Take time to laugh each day. A good joke is better than any pill you can take.

Life is short so learn to give and receive love. Love and be loved.

I'm back home today and will go back to DS#6's tomorrow. They had a funeral to attend so while they do that I came home. It looks like a wonderful day here in Ohio.

Have a WONDERFUL Wednesday everyone!

How true! My motto is if you can't say anything good, don't say anything at all!

those lilacs are gorgeous Ma! and I bet they smell so sweet!

I liked all those lists of truths especially the one that says "never say never". And I agree, relationships definitely over possessions

sorry about the funeral your son/DIL had to go to,but I'm sure you enjoyed checking in on your house to see what was happening there
