Watch our words

Language is the most powerful tool we have. Use it wisely. Please.

“Language is very powerful. Language does not just describe reality. Language creates the reality it describes.” ~Desmond Tutu

We toss them around like they are nothingness… invisible air out of our mouths or thoughts from fingertips. We say we’re just being funny, sarcastic or ‘venting’ but words are things that carry energy and weight. Maya Angelou said they get into the fabric of our lives, our curtains and our clothing. Into our very being. We lighten our hearts and the world around us when we share words that help and don’t harm. Let’s scatter kindness with our powerful everyday words.

Our prime purpose

Trying to stay positive through all the negativity in the world right now. Here’s another quote I love, but not sure who first said it–I read it on a church sign: “The only time we should be looking down on someone is when we’re reaching down with a hand to pull them up.” (My paraphrase, but sentiment the same)! Happy Wednesday.

“I’m grateful for being here, for being able to think, for being able to see, for being able to taste, for appreciating love – for knowing that it exists in a world so rife with vulgarity, with brutality and violence, and yet love exists. I’m grateful to know that it exists.” ― Maya Angelou

“It seems to me that if God were to speak to us, the message would simply be to love each other and offer reverence rather than enmity toward all of life.”
~Wayne W. Dyer, The Shift
