Power Within

Words have such power

More than many realize

They can strengthen a fragile heart

Or they can tear a soul apart from the inside out

 

Often times we think before we speak

Not considering how our words impact others

It’s become too easy to let words flow off our tongues

Though we don’t hesitate to get offended at what’s said to us

 

Hollow promises wound as much as cruelty in verse

Actions resonate loud and clear long after the words fall silent

What we do and what we say are echos of who we are

What reverberates in another’s ear when they see us clearly?

 

The power we wield within us is great

Greater than we could ever truly fathom

One that lasts from one generation to the next

And it is up to us to decide how to use it

Random sentiment

Life isn’t always beautiful, in fact, sometimes it’s downright ugly. While we can’t always control what happens to us or around us, we can control how we react and that in turn determines a lot of what follows. Life can be a wondrous journey, yes with bumps and bruises along the way, but still beautiful overall if we allow it to be. I choose personally to try to focus on the positive more than dwell upon the negative so that I may truly enjoy my life. I say try because there will be moments when it’s hard to be optimistic, but in the end, I am able to find the good. I hope it may be so for you all as well. It’s up to you, so how will you choose? 🙂

What we do is an echo of who we are….

What we say and what we do influences more people than I believe we realize. Yes, the people closest to us are touched the most by our words and actions, but there so many others we don’t stop to think about most of the time. The guy you cut in front of while driving to work because you were running late and not paying attention, the old lady you smiled at while in line at the grocery store, the lady that you helped when she dropped her stack of papers, the young boy you rushed off that was trying to sell pizzas for his youth group, and countless others we come across in our day to day doings that we often forget about before the end of the day. We have also been the one who has been sworn at, cut in front of, helped, been shown a kindness, and so forth. Usually when we’re the ones who are receiver, we tend to remember those random people we deal with, but not always when we’re the giver.

It’s easier to brush things off when we’re rude to a stranger because we think they’ll just forget about it; I mean we were able to forget the days events, so it should be a piece of cake for them, right? This world has been going downhill for a long time and a large part of it is because we have forgotten how to be kind to those around us. Whether it’s harsh or kind, things done to us stick with us for awhile and we often act in the rush of the moment. If people are being kind to us, we tend to smile more, be more polite, and are more willing to lend a helping hand. So the reverse is true, if we have people yelling at us all day, being rude, and insensitive, it’s so easy to slip into that same behavior.

I wish this world was kinder. We all have bad days and it is easier said than done not to let it get to us, not to take it out on someone else. I have been the giver of harsh words and rude actions myself. I feel horrible later, but what’s done is done and most times I can’t apologize to the one I offended. It’s not always easy to remember it’s not just about us, but it’s something I think we could all try a lot harder to remember. An act of kindness goes a long way, but so does an act of rudeness. My sentiment for today is, let us try to think of others, be kinder, and not take our problems out on others…whether it be those close to us or the strangers we may never encounter again. What we do is an echo of who we are, what do you want to hear reverberate in others ears?

Consumed by thoughts, as usual. ;)

Thoughts at the moment:

If you don’t like yourself, how can you expect others to like you?

We are often our worst critics.

It is often easier to give advice than to take it.

Actions really do speak louder than words.

Don’t like something about your life, change it, don’t expect others to do it for you.

Dreams can come true, but that all depends on you because you need to work for what you want in life.

We’re not promised tomorrow, so why spend so much time worrying about it? (easier said than done, I know.)

The past is the past, leave it there. Learn your lessons from it and move on.

You’re the only one who give yourself peace.

Love is stronger than hate, it always wins in the end.

We’re growing, changing, learning, and evolving till the day we die, so I suppose it’s always going to be safe to say, “I’m not where I was, but nor am I where am meant to be.”

Mistakes are a part of life, don’t let fear of failure ever hold you back. 

Embrace each mistake and use it as your next chance to grow.

Be old enough to know better, be wise, but be young enough to find the joy in life.

Your life is ruined only if you let it be.

God will only bring you to it if He’s going to bring you through it.

The power of laughter knows no limitations.

A good cry can cleanse the soul.

Don’t let hurt make you skeptical.

A child or an animal will show you your true worth.

No amount of make-up, surgery, or bling will ever be able to hide an ugly soul.

You were born an original, don’t become a copy.

Let your life leave an echo of laughter and love for an eternity.

So many judge and forget they live in a house made of glass.

I will fight for what I love and love what I fight for.

Don’t mistake my kindness as weakness.

I’m tougher than you think, smarter too.

Cherish those you love while they’re here, because tomorrow isn’t promised to any of us.

A genuine smile can change someone’s day.

Sometimes it’s nice to hear that when you have to do something difficult, you’re doing the right thing.

Sometimes it’s nice to hear that someone is proud of you, so don’t hesitate to be someone who encourages another.

Life is too short to hold onto grudges.

Find a reason to smile every single day, no matter how tough it might be.

There may never be a right time to do or say something, so sometimes you just have to go for it because you might not get another chance.

Oh and hey, everyone reading this….I love you.
