The Power of Words

“Kind words are short and easy to speak, but their echoes are truly endless” –    Mother Teresa

                                                                                                                  

  The number of words spoken daily are too numerous to casually count. We’re either using them or thinking them. The flow is on wide-open! They’re thrown around daily as if there is an endless supply and many times people speak without much thought or consideration to how it impacts others.

Words have power. The power to raise the world up or be an anchor that weighs the world down. Choose them carefully. Consider what you’re trying to accomplish when you speak to someone. Are your words about you or are you defining the other person? Consider your intention for using your words. Are you helping or hurting?

Speak positive & with integrity. It raises the energy for everyone around you. And you get a “whoosh” for sharing it!

The old-adage, “If you can’t say anything nice, don’t say anything at all” is excellent advice to guide our daily conversation. Try it. You’ll notice the difference. And if you just can’t find anything nice to say about the person speaking with you, excuse yourself out of the conversation. There is nothing wrong with that. In the end, you’re helping yourself and everyone involved.

Keep it simple,
Just Teri
