today I’m grateful to be able to write. There is something unique and special to get your thoughts out of your mind and onto paper even if it’s virtual. For me it’s like magic when I write as I can refine and edit and formulate sentences and structure the flow as I think. A few people have told me I speak in a stream of consciousness and I feel like probably write that way as well. Anyhow I have realized writing does expressing myself way better than speaking. In fact, I am now more and more curious how and why I even try to speak. I do so much better with my thoughts turned into words. I guess that leads into words and the value of using the right and or wrong words. Were the words for a constructive purpose or were they used to destroy. It’s incredible when you try to stop using even one words, example “just”, you suddenly notice you use this just about everywhere! Crazy isn’t it?! Ultimately speech is probably one of our most powerful tools and yet so many waste it away. Excuses and complaints are words at the end of the day. If only each of us used words of kindness, words of love and words of uplift and encouragement what a beautiful world we would live in. So maybe it’s not exactly like that today but I am going to try and say at least one kind thing to someone each day even strangers. It can turn their day around. So here’s to words and writing and spreading love!
