A Quick Thought…
I teach anatomy at a massage therapy school and occasionally receive pertinent pieces and related magazines in my faculty mailbox. Yesterday I read a brief article, “In the Work Place: How to Deal With Emotionally Charged Situations” by Christine Pemberton. She shared from “The Four Agreements”, a highly recommended book about “harmonious living with respect and acceptance”. Four foundational principles include:
- Always do your best. Knowing “best” can change with circumstances and physical state.
- Never make assumptions.
- Be impeccable with your word.
- Do not take anything personally.
Pemberton said honoring these four principles can lead to open communication and respect. That’s certainly solid advice and great wisdom for living.
