Sometimes I forget about the Power of Words.
Has anyone ever said something hurtful to you? If you are like most, you probably remember not only the words, but you remember the hurt. If you think about it, you can still feel that – that knot in your stomach, or the stinging tears falling uncontrollably from your eyes. You probably hear the words swirling in your head, cutting through your memory like a knife.
We need to treat others with kindness and respect. Words you don’t have to use them negatively. Get this, words can be used to transform, edify, encourage, build up and change people’s lives in positive ways.
If I had a magic wand, one thing I would wave away with the slight of my hand would be negativity.
I urge you to try using positive words this week. Encourage someone with your speech, you might want to use the unspoken positive word, you know, the smile.
Let me know how it turns out. How it made you feel and the impact you had on the people around you.
