The power of words…

The sun sets on another day…


They can move mountains, and move people. They came tame a hear or destroy it. They can overcome any adversity, or create a wall no man can tear asunder.

I am often amazed at how the power of words is used. It is sometimes cold and calculated, sometimes whimsical and loose, and sometimes devious and detrimental, and a lot more, but always words can open a world to anyone willing to write, listen, read or speak. A simple word can open or close doors, and the sound of silence can do the same.

I am hopeful my words get out to some people from time to time. Sure, I look at statistics and views, and if I am to believe those I should be happy, but all I would really like is for people to smile, and for the moments to be opened and maybe, just maybe, people to see the world from a slightly different point of view.

I know of no one who is right all the time, nor wrong all the time, but the introduction of new opinions is all that really matters, right? If we all believe the same, what a boring world that would be.

Funny huh? No, not funny, just eye opening. Words can move mountains, open eyes, entertain, cause fear, cause strife, cause social unrest, cause peace, create worlds, and much more. Hmmm.

So, as the sun sets on another day. Consider your words well. They can be your greatest gift. Use them wisely. Create a place for those around you that is positive, not negative. Use your words to lift people up, not take them down, and if you take a moment, lift up those that are negative about you. Use your words wisely, and remember, for those of us that write, if you can’t get the positives out of being positive, write someone in your next book and throw them off a cliff (in the book). Take your words and make them wonderful, no matter what.

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