I am…careful with the words I use.
Our words have the power to shape our world. Use them to create the good we desire.
If we direct positive words toward a person or situation they have a positive effect. This would mean that negative words directed at a person would have a negative effect. My thought here is to be careful with ones words before expressing them either aloud or on paper. Words put on paper are just as powerful as those expressed out loud.
As you go about your day, keep in mind the power of your words. You can make the world a better place by the words you use. You have the power to support or encourage others by your behavior.
I loved it when visiting my grandchildren and my granddaughter calls me “mama”. She also put out her hands wanting me to pick her up. Just this one word warms my heart. I look at this as a demonstration of how powerful words are.
