Your Words Matter More than You Think

 

Words matter. Whoever said, “sticks and stones may break my bones, but words can never hurt me” is out of their mind. I can think of a few hurtful things that have been said to me and some hurtful words that I’ve said. Even if we don’t mean to, we have all said hurtful things that leave marks on people. Then we hold grudges, some of which we don’t even realize until bad feelings come out of nowhere. I think a lot of hurt wouldn’t happen if we just thought for a second before we said those things we feel we need to say. It doesn’t take much time to think before you act. Try it. Now, instead of asking you what hurtful things you’ve said, I will ask you to focus on the other side of this.

What are some ways that you lift others up?

Who Makes Your Day?

Sometimes I have a bad day, but I have never seen this guy have a bad day. Every time I pass by his corner, he’s dancing, doing his fancy footwork. He is the person who makes my day.

For you it could be that teacher, boss, or employee. Whoever it is…

Who makes your day?

How To Deal With Insecurities

 

These are my feet. You will never see me wear flip flops even though I have four pairs. I have broken all my toes at least once and some of them grew back looking weird. Especially that middle toe on the right foot. My feet are probably the one thing that I’m most insecure about. When Jasmine and I were dating, I wouldn’t let her touch them or see them. Actually, this is probably the first time anyone has seen my feet other than my family. Now that I have let everyone in the world know about my insecurity, you can now do the same if you want. It feels good to let this stuff out.

Tell us what your insecurities are. I dare you.
