The Power of Words

Standard

 

Konichiwa!

I would like for everyone that is reading this post to think about words, because that is what my post is about. Words can come from lots of things. Books, magazines, people, and especially yourself. Let me share 4 important things that I have learnt about words this week…

1) WORDS CAN INSPIRE
As most of you know, another blogger put one of my posts on her blog and Facebook page. Her name is Christine from Project Light to Life.  It meant a lot to me that she shared my words and projects with the world. All the comments, likes and follows that I get from different bloggers makes me feel so happy, strong, proud and inspired. Every time I read a new comment it brings a smile to my face! I see the world as an adventure waiting to be found and reading all your comments connects me, in a small way, to all your countries.  Your words make me even more interested in exploring the world. I just want to add in that I am very proud to be part of the WordPress community. 🙂

2) WORDS CAN GROW SELF CONFIDENCE
I think a big thing that everybody should do is speak nicely to yourself. If you say mean things to yourself you will not have a positive mind and attitude. Also what I like to say is, you can choose to be your own best friend, or be your own worst enemy. I speak lots about quotes in my blog, so if you can’t think of anything positive, it can’t hurt to borrow from someone else. 🙂 Saying kind things to yourself can make you feel stronger, braver and a whole lot more confident.

3) WORDS CAN TAKE YOU ON ADVENTURES
Books have HEAPS of words! I am reading one with my mum, and once we finish it I have a brand new book that I would like to read too. For me, reading something interesting takes me to another world, on another adventure, where I can escape the pain. Now, please take MY words and repeat them in your head…
You can never have too many books!

4) WORDS CAN HELP AND HEAL
A few days ago I heard some sad news about Robin Williams who was a comedian\actor that I enjoyed watching.  He was a big hit all around the world. He starred in lots of movies, and he would always bring a great big smile to my face! Sadly, he was facing depression, and passed away. He is going to a calm and peaceful place now. We can learn from what happened to him. When you are feeling a bit sad or overwhelmed by life, you should think about talking it out with family, friends, or even a therapist. I want everybody to know that it is ok to ask for time to talk and ask for help. It is also fine to be less strong and a bit more weak at points. You actually feel a whole lot better the next day because you clear out your mind of upsetting thoughts. Trust me, I know,  as recently I had a big cry out because I have had a bad, painful CRPS flare up. So it is ok to ask people for help, and using your words makes it much easier. Remember, when you speak nicely to a stranger or a friend, you never know, but you could be making a big difference to a sad day. Also, I believe that bad times always pass to make space for good ones

So that is everything I have learnt this week. Think about this… What are the three most important words you have heard or read this week?
In everything I listed off today, there was something to do with words. What would we do without words in life?!
Thank you for reading MY words,
FZ out!! 🙂

  1. You are spot on. The old phrase “Sticks and stones may break my bones but WORDS can never hurt me” is the one of the most atrociously incorrect assertions in the world.

    Words are like the sun. It can melt butter, evaporate water and harden clay. Words are everything. How we use them MEANS everything.

    Thank you for this post. I am glad Christine pointed the way.

    Giesecke–OUT!

  2. I love this post! You are SO right about the power of words. Using them in a positive way rather than as a destructive force is important. I always told my daughters that whatever they said to people was like squirting toothpaste out of a tube. Once it came out, there was no way to put it back in again! Here are two of my favorite quotes about words: “Words are our most inexhaustible source of magic.” -Albus Dumbledore AND “Words can inspire. And words can destroy. Choose yours carefully.” -Robert Sharma

    PS…I really love your blog! It is very inspiring. 🙂

  3. What three words have I come across this week?

    Perseverance, never giving up.
    Determination, stopping at nothing.
    Confidence, knowing you’re on the right path.

    Seems like you have these three in abundance. 🙂
