Reminding People of Their Own Wisdom

 

Pioneer HandbookSue was implementing advice I had given her. She used my exact words to tell me the benefits of the practice. Sue had taken my advice one step further, and I learned from her. I didn't mind a bit that she seemed to have forgotten that I was the one who had made the suggestion in the first place.

Sue gave me the reminder I needed. I put my own advice into deeper practice.

One value of sharing your wisdom with others is that it puts them in a position to remind you when you need it. 

Here's a great quote from The Pioneer Girls Leadership Handbook

"A friend hears the song in my heart and sings it to me when my memory fails."

I am blessed by the friends in my life.
