We dismiss words too easy and don’t take care how we use them. We believe that a picture is worth a thousand words and that seeing is believing but yet we have over nine million books available on amazon. A little inconsistent I think.
We also believe that actions are more important than words, but how do you get anywhere without first thinking and sharing what you thought and felt?
I think we dismiss words far too quickly. We don’t care enough to pay attention and understand the subtleties of their meaning and this is a mistake. I’m not suggesting everyone needs to be a literary scholar, but they need to carefully choose which words they are going to choose and pick the purposefully, and not as a matter of fact.
I think words mean a lot. They are everything.
Words have the power to uplift and to destroy. Once again we are too quick too believe that sticks and stones may break our bones but words will never hurt us. They will and they can, or they can do the opposite.
You have the power inside of you to listen to what words people use in order to understand them better. You also have the power to use words as a means of encouraging people.
It starts with what you think and say about yourself inside your mind. It starts it how you describe yourself and how you let others talk to you. It ends with what you say to people.
Meaningful words are much needed today.
Take care that you care. Pick your words carefully. Act on the accordingly.
Spread the word and tell stories of how great it is to be alive.
