Preface

February 22, 2014 by Margo Page

There are a lot of positive things that happen in the world, and wonderful people who make them happen.  There is so much beauty in the world, and there is something beautiful in everyone.  But we can always strive for better and recognizing the negatives can be a really positive action, and sometimes it’s necessary for change.  If we don’t look at what we’re doing wrong, we won’t improve upon it.  Habits, routines, policies and procedures are things that we will keep following indefinitely if we don’t actively change course.  Like an ever-present pressure in my head, I feel obligated to share my thoughts on a public forum rather than keeping them locked away in a private document.  We are not only responsible for what we say, but also what we don’t say (and do).  Locked lips also sink ships.

A very smart friend of mine once told me that whenever anyone talks, “I think” is always implied.  I used to insert it into everything I said — to be accurate, and to make it clear that I recognized my thoughts as my opinion rather than an ultimate truth.  So I stopped saying “I think” so often, but I’m not audacious enough to think that my thoughts have validity in and of themselves.
