When I read a book, I am instantly transported to a different place. I was listening to one of my favorite running podcasts MarathonTalk and its set in England. So as I ran and listened, I felt like I was right there with the storytellers. Then I realized every time I read something British, in my head I read it with a British accent. Then it makes me want to go to England.
This is just one example of how powerful words are. It is so important to be mindful of what we say and how we say it. The Bible says the tongue has the power of life and death in it. I so believe that. Being a highly sensitive person, I take every word to heart.
I hope you have a kind word day 🙂
Well, I saw some clips of Black Girls Rock today and boy was I inspired and encouraged. I would say that like girl power, words are very powerful. They have the power to change our mood, cause us to think, and change our perspectives. This blog is so late because I had to do a mad write for NaNoWriMo. Now I am tired. Girl power is also what the Spice Girls sang about. So I would say that words impact the world and so does girl power. I hope everyone puts their words and power or central governor(my new favorite word) to the test in order to change the world for the better.
Word Count: 6,955
Words to go: 43,045
This is so true. I find that this affects me most when the words are spoken. Words have the ability to go straight to my core. So if I say something mean to someone, I’m pretty mad. For the most part, I try to speak positively to others because I want to be spoken to positively. It is always interesting to see the words that people choose to use in writing and in conversation.
I was thinking about this a lot last night. I hope to speak as positively as I can today. No matter what my insides are saying. I am a highly sensitive person(who is also an extrovert) and I think it would be interesting if I treated others as highly sensitive(just to be kind and see what kind of reaction I get).
What words are you choosing today?
