words..

 

Each time I post on my blog  it is filled with words..I wonder if the words were put together in a different way would they be ‘taken in a different’ manner???

Words are a very powerful thing..they get your thoughts across on paper...they can begin a conversation..they can start an argument or they can repair a broken relationship…it all depends on how you use them…

You can make a new friend with words or you can rekindle an old friendship…

words?..just  a bunch of letters put together in a matter that can affect a lot of situations…

words are indeed a powerful thing..use your words wisely..you never know how they will be perceived..good or bad..they are the way of communicating….

“Watch your thoughts, for they become words.
Watch your words, for they become actions.
Watch your actions, for they become habits.
Watch your habits, for they become character.
Watch your character, for it becomes your destiny.

  3. Hi. I've enjoyed reading your blog with it's combination of humour, deep thoughts, encouraging words and descriptions of your part of Canada a an your road trips. Great fun.

    Thinking about your furry family, hope they've settled after their big day out. We, my mother and I have 2 ragdolls. They live together at my mother's house and were supposed to be indoor cats, only going out on leads. That didn't last and they are becoming more and more adventurous. They love the beach and playing in the sand. Katie is a blue colour point, similar to your Oliver but with white triangle on her face. Lexie is a Lynx colour point and very fluffy. He even has a lion's ruff.

    Look forward to reading more.

    Blessings

  4. A timely piece indeed. Words have been on my mind this past week. So importantant how words can be used & for what purpose those words can be used for. Do we sometimes use them to help or do we sometimes use them to hinder. I particularly like the saying at the end of your post & in fact might incorporate that saying into the bottom of my blog because I feel it fits perfectly here in Blog Land where most of us deal with the written word on a daily bases.

  6. A good friend who is a powerful attorney for a copper mining cooperation said to me one time, "I hate email (this was before the days of text messaging), I really hate email. It is so easy to say something that someone misunderstands. It is so easy to be nasty in an email and say things you would never say on the phone to that person." I have always taken those comments to heart and try to really read what I have written to see if someone might misunderstand. Good post, Sue.

  7. Powerful video! Words are powerful. I try to never be hurtful with my words, but the written word can sometimes be interpreted differently than intended.

  8. Having been responsible for implementing the first email system where I worked, I always told folks "don't put anything in an email that you wouldn't want to read on the front page of your local newspaper". Some never learned though. Most bloggers are a lot smarter, I think.

  10. Well, today's post is definitely appropriate for me. I just looked at that video there yesterday and found it thought-provoking. As someone who writes so much though, it is hard to know for sure how your words will be taken. I try to remember to be loving along with my genuineness. I also want to take risks because that leads to growth. But sometimes that can leave you hanging out there...

  11. Good thoughts, no matter how well or how poorly we use our words, they tell a tale-about us.

  12. A beautiful post Sue and the video is very powerful. How true is it that the simplest of words, changed ever so slightly can gain so much more strength, and unfortunately the same goes vice versa; sometimes unknowingly.

  14. A friend sent me a link to that video this morning ... how true that a few words written one way can have more impact than if they ae written in another way.
