We all think what we say or type matters. And it does. But you know what matters more? The GOOD things you say. The COMPLIMENTS you give. The ENCOURAGMENT you provide. The UPLIFTING you do. The INSPIRATION you fill someone up with.
It is not the BAD things you say. Bad seeds grow from that. It is not the CRITICISM you give. Bad seeds grow from that. It is not the DISCOURAGEMENT you provide. Bad seeds grow from that. It is not the bringing DOWN that you do. Bad seeds grow from that. It is not the life you SUCK out of others. Again, bad seeds grow from that.
What we say and type does matter. It matters a whole heck of a lot.
I always go back to that saying, “If you have nothing nice to say, don’t say anything at all.”
In times where we feel attacked and mad and angry and SOOOO upset, it is easy to fire back with hate filled words, BUT this is also the quickest way to pour more gasoline on the fire. If what we ultimately want to do in this life is bring more peace and more happiness and more love and more help, than we have to learn to not fire back with more anger. Anger never ever wins ANYTHING.
You know what does win everything?
Love. Good ol homemade love. Love and compassion. They stir us. Love can stir the most hardened person into someone who is no longer so hard.
Good ol homemade love.
I love love.
Love & Blessings,
