Little Things

So what is more little than words, and more powerful - you can't even see them yet they can be a gift that lasts a life time or an enemy that can do the same. We throw them around all the time, trust me if you live with a 4-year old, they throw them around A LOT, but how much do we consider what we leave behind as we speak them into the wind. This is what I am taking away from this weeks Words and Pictures, speak all the nice things that you think but don't say and swallow the stuff that isn't anything but beautiful. I am giving compliments to people I don't know, filling my kids with good words of pride and joy and giving myself a little cheer squad every now and again. Try it - it doesn't cost anything, you got nothing to loose and good karma to gain. I want to know how it goes.
More small things at Pips place - and big stuff too. like her super cute book.

You have touched on something so incredibly important to me. The things we say can have such long lasting and devastating effect particulary on our children. These words that we can't see have so much power. Good for you for using your words positively :)

I totally agree with you, especially with children. Our words and our actions are soooo important to them.

Yes so much of it is habit isn't it and it's just as easy to be in the habit of saying nice things as saying negative...
