I’ve always found it fascinating how several people can read or see the same thing, yet each one of them gets something different out of what they've read or seen. This is a small example of how faulty communication can be at times and may give a person some insight into how easily a miscommunication or a misunderstanding can happen. When unsure, an easy remedy is simply asking for clarification instead of sitting back wondering and perhaps feeling an array of unnecessary, negative emotions. You know what they say about assumptions and the only stupid question in life is the unasked question. One of the crucial keys to harmony and personal growth is the development of effective communication skills. Without it, we just randomly collide in the abyss of uncertainty.

Gratitude statement: I'm thankful for being able to welcome in yet another new year.
