"The Power of Words"

"The power of words" - a theme that's been recurring lately on the JTI. Synchronicity?

That video was uplifting for some reason. Words are powerful. You never know how much, until someone comes back to you and repeats something you said to them a long time ago that stuck in their head.

My mom had a little poem she would recite:
Choose your words and say them sweet, you never know which ones you'll eat.

Oh yeah. And sometimes words last forever. I've been reminded of things that I said off the cuff that wounded others deeply.

The positive message of the video:

"Change you words.
Change your world."

Ok that made me cry a little.. but it's a beautiful message..

I get quite sad sometimes that my English skills have deteriorated so much since moving here and learning this second language. I keep thinking about taking a creative writing class when I get back just to bring my writing skills back to where they once were.

beautiful video

I was waiting to see what she had written. Then I seen it and it reminded me of the same thing my grandma had told me a very long time ago. I almost went into tears when I seen that.

Thanks Orbs.

As someone who has been know to shoot their mouth off, verbally and in written form, this hits home with me. I know I have hurt and pissed people off in the past. And it reminds me as I remember things that happened to me as a child and things my parents said to me, I must remember what I want my daughter to remember as well.
