I love them so much. I imagine most writers do. They hold the power within them to catapult you from your chair into a world filled with mysterious creatures and wonder.
They also hold the power to crush ones soul. So many words are written for all the world to see. The internet has become an anchor in most homes. A necessity almost. Our young children have access to anything and everyone with just one click.
And yet…..the words that we see and read come from someone. Someone sitting behind the co.puter or their cell phone within their fingers, creating words by putting letters together. Possibly never even considering the impact that those words may have on another soul.
Words can bring LIFE to a heart that is barely hanging on. Words can bring HOPE when there seems to be none left.
Your WORDS matter. My WORDS matter. YOU MATTER.
One simple change. One word removed and the entire paragraph changes.
Who you are, what you believe, how you behave. It ALL matters. The things that you say, think, and write MATTER.
Someone somewhere will read what was written and an impact is made. Someone will over hear what you say and an impact is made.
I know we go through life only focusing on US and how what we do or say impacts US. But perhaps, even just for today. Consider the words you allow to be spoken. Consider the words you believe. Consider the words you write.
Because someone, somewhere, will be impacted by YOU and the WORDS you leave behind.
