Sticks and stones may break my bones but words can never hurt me!!!!!
I grew up hearing this little ditty. When I was a small child I would think how silly, words cannot hurt me. They are not able to cut me, or make me bleed. As I grew older I found out how wrong I really was about the power words have.
Yes they can be sharp to the point of cutting our spirits, and hearts making them "bleed".
When we put hateful, hurtful words out in the universe they take on a life, and meaning of their own. We can never, how hard we may try take them back. Once said, the damage has been done.
So why not go the other way, using kind uplifting words. Words can also have the power to help, to uplift someone making a positive difference in their life.
I am trying to learn to be very careful in the choice of words I choose to speak. I want to only say things that are are loving. My Grandmother: said if you cannot say something good about someone then say nothing. I have decided to adopt this saying and apply it to my daily living.
With this being said; I want to tell each of you how much I always appreciate all of the kind and inspiring words you leave for me!!!
Happy week my Friends!!!!!
