memories

Tennessee Williams said “Life is all memory except for the one present moment that goes by so quick you can hardly catch it going.”

I came across this quote recently and it reminded me of how important it is to consider what you say to others. You need only say one thing in haste and it will forever remain with the person it was directed at.

You may not have meant it the way it sounded but that doesn’t matter – it’s out there in the universe. So next time, before you say something you might regret, take a breath and think of something that will leave a good memory.
