    A small change I could make is to be more tolerant with adults. I work with children and God has blessed me to have abundance of patience with them, but when it comes to adults I expect to much I guess. I could make more of a difference in the lives of adults and children if I could be more composure and understanding towards others.

    A little more tenderness could help.

    Think less, act more and sometimes, just be – from a somewhat compulsive overthinker!

    Echoing others who mention pausing before speaking I’m reminded of my post from a couple of years ago to practice the Quaker’s direction: Does this need to be said? Does this need to be said now? Does this need to be said by me? When I practice this I am more likely to be a constructive contributor to the conversation.

      Thank you for that bit of Quaker wisdom, Elaine.

    I need to rest more and stay in the present moment and not worry about the future. That way I will be a calmer presence for those around me, which I have found in the past has a knock-on effect. The calmness is catching!

    Return to my practice of walking twice around the block between the many meetings in my days, listening to birds, looking at the sky, smiling and waving at neighbors. I lost it when I injured my knees taking up running (and promptly dropping it again) and then in the hurly-burly of a very intense season in my work world. This respite will recharge my batteries and the people in my meetings will get more of my attention and energy.

    Starting each day with gratitude. Focusing on what I have, rather than what I don’t, makes me more patient, loving, and content.

    Taking time out of everyday, no matter how busy I am, to connect, energise and show love, respect and kindness.

    Returning to the discipline of daily walking & having regular sleep times would help me and in turn others. I’d be a more “rested me” to interact with. Others would see less of me again and hopefully for a longer time frame.,

    Simply checking in more often. Sometimes work and life becomes so busy, checking in with a loved one is definitely needed to maintain that relationship.

    Like Mahua Seth’s response below, I could insert a pause before speaking or acting. Doing either on impulse, even well-intentioned, is unwise.

      Laura, Your post reminded me of this saying: “Think once before you act, twice before you speak and three times before you post on Facebook.” Contemplative Monk It’s also taught in Toltec Wisdom.
