Tempering My Emotions
July 7, 2011
Leo Daily Horoscope
You may have strong feelings about your ideas, and your convictions could lead you to come across as too strong and argumentative in your interactions with others. A great way to temper your mind-set is to consider the impact your words may have on people before you speak. Taking the time to think about your response first will allow time for your emotions to settle and you’ll be able to communicate more clearly. You might also make an effort to inject an extra dose of kindness into every response today. You may be surprised at how receptive others can be once you’ve adjusted your approach.
Taking care to temper our emotions and speak with kindness can enhance the clarity of our communications with others. We often speak without taking time to consider what we really want to say. If we can explore our true message carefully first, then choose the most effective words to express ourselves, we increase our chances for being understood and received by others. People will be willing to listen with an open mind and consider our ideas without feeling like we are pushing our beliefs on them. We then create a productive process of clear communication and a genuine exchange of ideas that benefits all of us. If you can communicate with others with an open mind and kind heart today, you might be pleasantly surprised by the responses you receive.
I am reflecting on today's horoscope, gearing up for a morning office meeting that has the potential to be unpleasant should I allow my emotions to take over. I need to breathe deeply and think clearly, not easy to do with the hormonal fog filing up my head. Wish me luck..
