I have, in my past, used my words to cut people. In my mind, it was power, to be able to bring someone down with my words. How wrong I was. There is power in words, the power to lift others up, lift myself up, if need be.
Today I am so grateful and thankful to have the ability to express myself in a way, hopefully, to help someone else.
A friend reminded me this morning that sometimes we just need to be there for ourselves. We cannot expect other people to support us, especially when what we are trying to do goes against the grain. It's not their fault, or even their indifference, as much as their, not knowing what would be helpful.
There is also, power in what we say to ourselves. It's amazing the hurtful, disrespectful things I say to myself. "Your stupid, your ugly, etc. . . I think (could be wrong) women are particularly bad about this. The truth is, what we say to ourselves, creates our reality.
Fantasizing the freedom to treat myself well. To "prophecy" good things over my life and those around me. You are beautiful today, healthy, happy and free. AMEN
