We all know how good a well timed thank you feels, how nice it is when your boss says "well done" or "good job". It's great to hear that you are needed and that you add value. We all want validation and to be recognized but how often do we do this for others or ourselves?
The last few days the power of words has come sharply into focus for me as I started a new chapter of my life. Funny when we have to say goodbye or when things change we suddenly say the things we should have all along...it also became very clear to me that when there are big changes in your life, big doubts and fears tend to flare up and this affects our inner dialogue profoundly.
I have realized that we need to be aware of what we say...or don't say to others and perhaps even more importantly what we say to ourselves and about ourselves. The right words at the right time can touch someone deeply and may mean more to them than you realize.
So the question is:
Are you bringing positive things into your world but what you say to yourself and others? Or are your words those of a victim? Is your inner voice your harshest critic? We can all choose and that is the magic of it.
My challenge to you : thank those who help you, encourage those who need a lift and speak kindly to yourself and others!
Have a divine week!
