Sticks and stones may break my bones but words can never hurt me.
Although words alone cannot hurt you, they evoke great emotion that can uplift others or tear them down. Choose your words wisely. Choose words that inspire. Choose words that comfort. Choose words that bring out happiness. Choose words that are gentle. Even in disagreement or great conflict, you can choose words to that inspire healing rather than add to the pain.
Until next time – see how many times you can use these words this week: live, love, laugh, hug and smile.
