Wow, this one made me really think about what comes out of my motor mouth on a daily basis. Thank you to Julie at Joy’s Hope for sharing this with us.
Never underestimate the power of your words.
With each one that you form,
you are making the choice to
build or destroy
encourage or devastate
heal or wound
love or hate
inspire or discourage
admire or scorn
share hope or cast doubt.
It is said that it takes ten kindly spoken words to counteract every negative one.
But if you ask me, it takes 100. Or a 1,000.
Hurtful, hateful words somehow seem to carry so much more weight. They have the fortuitous ability to stick around. To fester. Sadly, they are often the ones that we remember most vividly.
How are you going to wield your power today?
