There is no easy way to say it.
For me, life is tough.
Not life can be tough or life is sometimes tough.
Life is tough.
So, having established that, I ask myself, “how can I make my life easier?”
Because, to some degree, I have power over my life and my life’s choices.
Things that are in my control, is where I will focus.
And, per my example today, I can control the words I use.
Words have power!
They are influential.
Words can make all the difference in how you are treated!
Words, however, don’t guarantee that you will be heard, but they are important…
I try and be encouraging when I can, but there are times (like in this post category), where I say whatever I am feeling, and I do that with my words.
I have learned that I get more personal satisfaction out of being kind (in a general sense), and by saying things in an inviting way.
Inviting as in, people will oftentimes entertain what I have to say, if I am, above all else, kind.
Not everyone is going to care about what I am saying, though, and that is evident in the words others use back to me (or don’t use back to me).
Anyhow, this is just an important observation about using one’s words, and doing so positively – which (admittedly), I sometimes struggle doing.
