Power of Words. . .
How many of you know the Power of Words? And there effects??
I was raised with the understanding that when you speak, you speak things into being.
Well, I have been dealing a lot lately with MY MOUTH.
I recently realized how filthy my mouth is, lol really bad!!!
So, I have been reading books and listening to teachings about controlling my tongue.
I could go on about how the different ways we speak effect our lives.
But I wanted to stay on focus on how holding my tongue and listening effects my world.
When I am listening, I am hearing other sides of the story, before I get to make an opinion first!!!
Key point there, BEFORE I MAKE AN OPINION!!!
With all the political issues, COVID, life changes, confinement, and so on, it has been stressful and with the stress I have been more vocal.
Although, I have nothing REALLY to complain about as I have been taken care of and all my needs are covered and even family has made it through fairly well.
I have a strong personality and come across as harsh, even when I am in a good mood. (Can anyone relate?)
Well, since I have been working on holding my tongue and actually listening, I have noticed I am more calm and don't make a big deal out of all the little things that aren't worth being stressed about.
So the lack of words (or more thought out and deliberate words) has made me more calm inside.
What I am putting out, I want it to be deliberate as in speaking things into being.
Focusing on the positive and finding the good in EVERY little thing has made a good impact in my life and those I interact with.
Just like setting goals, I speak them out loud so I can hear myself saying it and speaking it into reality.
I love knowing I can make anything happen, just by speaking it!!!
I don't know who else can relate to this but I would love to hear what you are dealing with and how you are handling this.
Do you use a buddy system to hold yourself accountable or what other ideas do you have?
