My favorite quote...

So we were going to blog about our favourite quotes and then some of us, uh... didn't... my bad.

But I'm here now. Actually I'm home with a sick baby who is sleeping and an editor is calling me in ONE MINUTE.

Long ago I made a big huge gaffe, writing something I shouldn't have. I wasn't trying to be mean, but I was. So now I try to follow this:

If I'm going to write or say something, I need to THINK. Is it:

True
Helpful
Inspiring
Necessary
Kind

Now sometimes we have to say thinks that aren't all of those... but then I have to ask myself if I need to say it or write it. Sometimes I don't. Sometimes I still do.

I'm sure it has stopped me from writing some things I would have wanted to take back.
