day60: communicate clearly

Don’t make assumptions. Find the courage to ask questions and to express what you really want. Communicate with others as clearly as you can to avoid misunderstandings, sadness and drama. With just this one agreement, you can completely transform your life. Don Miguel Ruiz

The above is one of Don Miguel Ruiz's agreements that he writes about in his book, 'The Four Agreements'.  I found his thoughts about transforming one's life with four basic 'agreements' to be very interesting and thought-provoking.  Yet, like so much that I have shared here on this blog, the agreements sound so basic and simple, however so many of us don't live by them ...

The FourAgreements:
Be Impeccable With Your Word.
Don't Take Anything Personally.
Don't Make Assumptions.
Always Do Your Best.

Below is a little more about Don Miguel Ruiz, his book and the four agreements (thanks to wikipedia).  If you are interested in learning more, I suggest listening to Peter Coyote read the book as it is a lovely combination of words and voice.  
Also remember never to assume, as it makes an ASS out of U and ME. :)
love, mom
