Speak Well

“Speak hopefully. Speak encouragingly, including about yourself. Try not to complain and moan incessantly. As someone once said, ‘Even in the golden age of civilization someone undoubtedly grumbled that everything looked too yellow.’  Yes, life has its problems, and yes, there are negative things to face, but please accept one of Elder Holland’s maxims for living—no misfortune is so bad that whining about it won’t make it worse.”

Jeffrey R. Holland

  1. Oh, I remember hearing him say this, but I needed to hear it again. I never think I’m a complain-y person, but when I really take a good look at myself, I can grumble think anyone can. I want to be better than that, so thank for the reminder!
