The Power Of Our Words
Hi all! Lately I’ve been thinking about words and how much power they have. They have the power to hurt or to heal. They have the power to encourage or discourage. They have the power to incite passion or kill a mood. They have the power to stir up someone’s greatness or tear them down. They have the power to create anger or express love.
Words are powerful. I’ve become more aware of the words that I speak and speak to others. We can make a powerful impact in the lives of others just with our words. I’m sure that we have all experienced having a “bad day” and out of no where, a kind word or encouraging word is spoken and your mood begins to change from “bad” to “better.” How many times have you been the one speaking those kind words?
Growing up, I was fortunate to have a mother and brother that encouraged me and believed in me. Their love and support has played an integral part in shaping me into the person I am today. Not many youth of today have that love or support. Not many are told that they are beautiful, that they are smart, that they can be successful, or that their lives even matter. There’s greatness in them and sadly, many don’t know that. What can we do? As I talked about in my previous blog, we give back and in addition to that, we speak meaningful words. Just knowing that someone cares is priceless.
Sure, words alone won’t cure all of the ills of life but we’ve got to start somewhere. Let’s encourage one another. Let’s encourage our youth. Let our words inspire greatness and foster integrity. The world is watching. The opportunity and need is there. What are you going to do?
