What Did You Just Say?


Today let’s really take the time to notice what we say to others.  Let’s notice what pictures we paint with our words.  Are we using our words to lift and inspire others?  Are we using our words to hold others back or put them down?

What are we talking about?  What are we sharing with others?

Do not focus on what others are saying to you today – focus on what you are saying.  Consider how your words make you feel when you say them.

Conduct an experiment.  Say something about how worried you are.  How does that feel?  Now say something about how joyful you are.  How does that feel?

How do you think it feels to be on the other end of your conversations?  What energy are you sharing?

We can lift and inspire others, and ourselves – or we can hold everyone, including us, down.

Watch your words today.

  1. I tend to think that I’m a happy person most of the time, so when I heard “You’re always grumpy” the other day it made me take a step back. So I began to question why they thought that. The answer I got was exactly what you wrote here. I vent a lot; not rant angrily, just simply discuss things that I see. I’m not grumpy, but that makes me *sound* grumpy. Our mood is often described by the words we speak. If we speak happy words, we’re happy. If we speak frustrated words, we’re grumpy. All that to say, thank you for writing this. You are absolutely right and we should all pay closer attention to our words.


I love to hear from you!
