WORDS

Dear Diary,

This is a special entry for Two Shoes Tuesday,

I have realised that the simplest things in life, the ones we don't think about much, are the ones that have the most impact.

Take for example words.

We use them everyday, all the time, this very instant. I'm using the medium of words to write and communicate my thoughts to you.

Sometimes we use these word randomly, rarely realising the impact they have on those around us. Einstein's teacher called him a dunce and sent him out of class. Little did she know, that he would change the history of science forever.
Often we get lost in the labyrinth of words and are unable to put our point across, we resort to jargon when simple words do the trick. For fear of being laughed at, we complicate the easiest things, by using words sometimes whose meanings we are not quite aware of.

Words can make or break a person, it all depends on how they are used.An encouraging word will ignite curiosity and a passion for learning, a discouraging one will diminish the hopes and dreams linked to it.

Begin today, use your words with care. If you can't encourage someone, don't discourage them. You never know the one you call 'good for nothing' today, will turn out to be 'an inventor who changed the face of the world' tomorrow.

Your words may change someone's life, so don't ever leave the important words unsaid.

Leaving you with a personal favorite of mine.



The Sunday Visitor.

  1. This was a wonderfully wise essay on the power of words, Judygirl, and a great way to start off this week's Two Shoes Tuesday! :-) You are so right, our words can hurt or heal. We remember things that have been said to us in love, and in anger, for the rest of our lives. It is important that we be conscious of the things we say to others, and also that we stand by what we say. Thank you for participating in Two Shoes Tuesday, I appreciate your contributions so much! Have a great week ahead!
