Words

Posted by Patrice Smith

If only I can take back what I have said because I really did not mean it. How often have we said things that we have regretted? Words are powerful! Words can be viral! Words can take on a life of its' own if we are not careful. It is important that we become more responsible with the words that emanate from our mouths. It's important that we properly commission ourselves so that we continually use the right words in our interpersonal relations with other. Remember, as you use words you have to live by what you say. So, the next time that you open your mouth to speak, just allow yourself to think before you do so. You are what you speak! make your world better by sharing and speaking positively rather than doing so with negative words or actions.

Before you speak, think - Is it necessary? Is it true? Is it kind? Will it hurt anyone? Will it improve on the silence? ~ Sri Sathya Sai Baba

    So true sis! Our words hold power. Our words can destory or they can heal. I talk to my nieces and nephews to not allow negative words any power over them. Cause people speak without thinking and children are around! Or worse they are saying it to the child and it sticks with them. Thank you for this!

    Sometimes we use words to consciously or subconsciously hurt others. Channeling these words into positive healing to others would most certainly make this world a better place. A very insightful topic Patrice!!
