To Avoid Being a Jerk…

Jerks, I’ve decided, are called jerks because they do knee-jerk reactions.  They don’t think through what they do or say.  You need to be more intelligent about it.

 Anything we do or say, before doing or saying, we should ask, “will this really accomplish anything, or is it just my knee-jerk reaction?”

 Mindful of living, mindful of reactions.  Because at the end of the day, we don’t control what happens to us.  We control our reactions to what happens to us.
