Being Mindful of Your Words......

Please always be mindful of what you say and who you say it to.
Know that your words hold great power, and with that power comes great responsibility.
Your words can have a fantastic impression, either positive or negative on their recipient/s.
What may seem to be a trivial comment to you, could have a long lasting (sometimes a lifetime) affect on someone else.

I find it very interesting as to what we remember being said to us throughout our lives.

The things that seem to stick with us.
The statements that have helped form our opinions of ourselves (good and bad).
The negative comments shouted to us as children that still hurt, to this very day.
The gravity in which we still hold and held, to the words of acceptance and approval from our elders/mentors.

Or the silence, in which we keep seeking this approval.
This silence has the power to speak louder than any words ever spoken.

Be kind.
Be mindful.
Be love.
