“We don’t have to say or think what we don’t wish to. We have a choice in those things, and we have to realize that and practice using that choice”. ~ Rolling Thunder, Cherokee
We have so many words in the English dictionary, some of which are to foul and nasty to say, let alone print. Many times we don’t know the true definitions of these words. As a human species we’ve come to a point where we quite often throw words around without even thinking of their impact on others around us. Usually we do it out of anger.
There’s one thing I learned when confronting or debating with another person. Never swear or use foul language because it invalidates everything we say. Our words become useless and have no meaning. Besides, when we throw these words around we show our intellect, or lack thereof.
Today we gave a choice to say what we want and when we want to. We can do a couple of things with our choice of words. One thing is to learn the real definition of some of our words. We can easily do this by putting the word into the search engine of whatever device we’re using and can find numerous sources for the word.
When we know the meaning of our words, we can start using them to build others up instead of tearing them down. We can think before we speak. We can ask ourselves, “Are my words are kind or helpful. Are they supporting or destructive? Are they words of love or words of hate?”
Thought for the day: My mom was right when she quoted a line from the movie Bambi. “If you can’t say something nice meeting, don’t say anything at all.”
