As the blogging continues on it give me so much to reflect on through out each day. It makes me think about the words we use and how they effect everyone in our lives. I watched some Nanny show on TV and she approached the parent with correcting the words he uses towards his children. She commented that using negative comments or suggestions makes them think that is what they are or will become. She instructed him to try to use positive remarks, even when the moment is difficult. A very interesting approach. Words can really hurt and cause damage. It can make you think that you are only as good as the person speaking to you tells you you are.
So today my word of the day is POSITIVE. I only can see one definition and that is good. It should make you feel good and others feel good. Think before you speak and consider what and how your statement will come out. Think about how it will effect the person you are speaking to and even more so how it will effect you. I am someone special! vs I am a nobody! Which one makes you want something better? Imagine telling someone that "You are worthless! vs You are so special!" Imagine it being said to you and how it would make you feel. Even in the worse case scenarios...I love you, you are special, you mean the word to me or thank you, gives the person a sense of well being.
So today take the challenge is to be POSITIVE.
