“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.
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!)
