The power of words…

“Sticks and stones can break my bones, but words can never hurt me.” I’m not sure about that little ditty, even those words that are left unsaid, still pack a punch, more so when it’s that negative, “Blank” said this about you…”. “OUCH”, it’s human nature to be sucked into negativity, mostly early in your career, your skin gets thicker, you ignore the words considering the source. Some folks don’t grow out of it…But day after day, with negative vibes, the refusal of others to acknowledge their part in the debacle, really a negative that spreads throughout the workplace, from the top down, like a cancer. You need your job, you suck it up. It’s just words after all, right? So each day is a new day, I smile- I sincerely say the inner prayer “I wish you well.” I hope the good I do to help others, will outweigh the seesaw negative feeling I experience throughout the day, only time will tell. A magic eight ball would be most appreciated at this time. Stay tuned friends…

A place to return to my writing, to start amid the plethora of social media outlets, of which it’s hard to be heard, harder yet to believe the perfect selfies and perfect lives. I’m a Lover of four leaf clovers, wildflowers, second chances and lucky pennies. When that time comes, I hope to have left the world a little better than I found it. Let’s create, laugh and be kind to all.
