I am a word person. I write, but also I listen to every word that is spoken to me. I take them all to heart. I realize now that earlier in my life I often spoke before I thought deeply about my words.
Words can stab like a sword. Abusive words remain in your thoughts, even if subconscious, to sting you again and again.
Try today to think before you spontaneously blurt out any words. If need be, and this will help your day anyway, take a breath. Breathing calms you and empowers you because you have time to use your intellect instead of your emotions!
Just for today try to speak words that are positive; even benign words will be better than words of hatred and anger….these words only inflame YOUR fire. They resolve little.
Challenge yourself for just one day and “feel” the difference from within yourself! Your thoughtful words can change YOUR day – as well as the day of others.
If you can find a kind word, be honest about something, and share it. We always hear the negative. Make a difference in your own sphere of living and perhaps, it will become a habit – a good one!
Create a brilliant day with your words!
