Say what you mean….

The sun sets on another day…

Describe your day, picture it in your mind. Make a mental image of the day, now discard the negativity, sloth off the bad parts, and there you have elation. Now watch the sunset, and feel that elation flow within you.

Sounds good right?

So how do you put things into words?

I have been writing for a while and only have a few items left that a friend posted on a wall. Tonight’s thought is: “Say what you mean and mean what you say.”

Words can be so cool. they can light up a room or destroy the room as easily. As the stewards of words we must be careful to ensure we are always doing the best to shield our words, and make sure we give people the right meaning behind our words. To that end, we should always say what we mean. Saying what we mean is a matter of clarity, but meaning what we say, well, that is a matter of translation. Often people say what they mean, but have no idea what they are saying. Sometimes people don’t say what they mean, but mean what they said anyway. It can get quite confusing, just like language always tends to get.

My advice to my children, consider your words well, and know them before you say them, and say them with caution, for they can be the kindest flowers that bloom into amazing beauty, or the most devastating weapons known to man. 

funny huh, words as flowers and weapons, really funny.

So as the sun sets on another day, my children, consider well your words, and enjoy the mastery you have over language, and mean what you say because you say what you mean, each and every day, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, love life, and live it every day…
