The Power of Words

The pen is mightier than the sword. That’s a saying that struck a chord in my young mind so many years ago. Words can kill. Words can heal. Words are beauty and grace and love. Words are ugliness and dishonor and hatred. Words can move mountains or slay you with a single utterance.

BeliefNet just published a series of inspirational quotes from some amazing women who have found profound words to express their own experience. This one particular quote rang so true for me that I’m sharing it with you.

“Your own words are the bricks and mortar of the dreams you want to realize. Your words are the greatest power you have. The words you choose and their use establish the life you experience.”  ~ Sonia Croquette

So if you say “I am out of time,” you are right. If you say “I have more than enough,” you are right again.

If you live within the abundance of the moment, even the most painful, darkest ones, you will know that you are living full out and that you are the creator of that moment by the mere choice you make in how you wish to interpret it.

Today’s slow action: Take a moment to say something kind to someone. It could make all the difference in the world.

    Yesterday after a very stressful real estate closing, I felt completely drained. Then I read this wonderful post and realized how we create our reality through our thoughts and words. I went forth to create some happiness with my words. Christine does this every day. Thanks, Christine for the reminder.
