Words are powerful.

“Be careful with your words. Once they are said, they can be only forgiven, not forgotten.”

A lovely fellow blogger inspired this post today when I was having trouble figuring out what was next for me. My dad said that we have quite the dynamic duo going on because he focuses so much on his humor and his “tough life” being surrounded by all women 😉 however, I am focusing on a more serious approach I guess you could say…

Words are quite powerful. You would assume that people would be more careful about the words that leave their mouths however, we know that isn’t always the case. We are all victims who have been wounded by simple words that have been spoken by a loved one or a stranger. We are all multiple offenders that have spoken such words to a loved one or stranger and instantly wanted to take them back.

Isn't it amazing that the people who claim to love you and have your best interest at heart are also the ones who have the power to crush you ?:

I’ve done it. You’ve done it. We have all done it. No one is perfect however, I have watched time and time again as people just rip into someone who didn’t deserve it at all. I am sure that I have ripped into someone that may not have deserved it. As a matter of fact, YES, I know that I have. I’m not proud of it and I would very much like to take back some of the awful things that I have said but I can’t. People have forgiven me but I know that they will never forget that incident. That one time. That one word that broke them into pieces. And I don’t blame them, I understand it. I have done the same.

I believe that now more than ever people need to be aware of the words that they are letting escape their mouths. Filter or not, have some respect and act your age. Or don’t act your age (you know, like my dad ;)) but have R E S P E C T. We should be doing more good in the world rather than adding more negative shit to it. Things are bad enough, we don’t need your negative attitude fogging everyone up everyone else’s view.

Find what makes you happy. Document it. Savor it. Write it down. Take a picture. Eat it.

Spend more time writing down inspirational quotes and sharing that vibe with others. It’s much more contagious than the negativity you’re currently spreading around. And listen, I’m working on this too so don’t think you are alone. And trust me, there will be days that you feel down in the dumps and you want to take it out on everyone around you.. Unless you are my dad, who just ALWAYS seems to be peppy (I do not know how he does it) and believe me, if you are NOT a morning person like me, you would NOT want to sit in the car with him while he DRIVES YOU TO SCHOOL! -_- Those years were torture 😉 No but seriously. Pure t o r t u r e. (Love you!)

  1. I just LOVE this post! Its so true that we are all offenders and, speaking for myself, my insides do feel like they are shredding apart even when a stranger says something negative or flips me the bird because I didnt go fast enough for their rush that day. I often find myself sad for days wondering if I was at fault or could have changed my behavior to not upset that person. There is definitely a ripple effect! Thanks so much for the reminder that I can bring positivity or negativity with each encounter. Today, you probably made a lot of people happy!

    1. Wow, thank you so much! This comments mean a lot and I really hope that I am able to at least make one person happy today and every day! This post definitely made me think a lot about it and the anger that sometimes builds up inside me. I definitely want to find different ways to let it out rather than take it out on someone who probably doesn’t deserve it!

      1. After reading your post I thought about reframing & chunking 🙂 weird right?! But if I just start by reframing my negative thoughts into positive ones, just for the next 2 hour chunk of time that I will be out and about, I will probably make a positive impact on at least 5-10 people (not that I think negatively of them all). So that makes your expressed thought today touch me, my family and everyone I will encounter today. Pretty cool if ya ask me!! Nice job and thanks again for making the remainder of our day be filled with positive vibes. I’ll worry about tomorrow later.. hehe

  2. I love reading all of these! So many laughs… Puts a smile on my face. 😀
    All I can say is that I’m so proud of the young lady that you Samantha Nichole have become. I was there from day one to see your precious face come into this world… It was amazing!!!!! I knew you were gonna make a difference for all of us. I’m so glad that you stepped out on your own & don’t take crap from anyone. You’re right we all say and do things we can’t take back, we just hope we can be forgiven. Then again there are some situations where what we do & say are appropriate and there’s no need for forgiveness!!!!! I’ve been guilty of both, I’m sure I will slip and do it again in the future but as I get older I have calmed down… I’ve learned to bite my tongue a lot more. As for your dad Dennis Swain…. You are right on! That man is always smiling, happy as can be. It’s great seeing people like that. World needs more of them!!!!!! ❤️ Love you!

    1. Awh thank you! I appreciate all your kind words and definitely love you for being there for me from day one until now and into the future. I know things have been extremely rough and difficult at times, but we are both doing our best and I thank you for all the positive things you say when I’ve been down in the dumps because of a certain someone. I’m glad you’re enjoying our posts — that’s all we want is for people to enjoy them, laugh, smile, etc. 🙂 Love you!

  3. There’s still beauty in this world , but you have to open your heart in order to find it , don’t be afraid to embrace what you fear, rather thrive from no longer fearing it .
