Words

ARE POWERFUL

One kind word can warm three winter months. – Japanese Proverb

Words can do that. They can be uplifting and motivational. They can make the situation better. An apology can repair a broken relationship. They can make you feel like you are on top of the world. An unexpected compliment can make your entire day better.

Watch someone’s face when you tell them you are proud of them. Do it.

ARE MEANINGLESS

They can also be completely empty. A throw-away comment can send you into a spiral of self-doubt and questioning. They can be pithily tossed about so often that you wonder if the speaker is even aware they are saying it.

What words do you throw around? Are they positive? Constructive? Or are they an insult or a complaint?

CAN CREATE

Words can form an opinion, a bond, a career.

I believe you can speak things into existence. - Jay Z

Think about those times when it was the first time you heard “I love you.” Tell me your heart didn’t feel like it was about to burst.

YOU have that effect on people, too.

CAN DESTROY

Words spoken in an unfulfilled promise can destroy everything you thought you knew. They can cut you to the quick, slash your heart to ribbons, and make you feel so tiny.
