Happy Wednesday! This weeks weekly inspiration comes from Proverbs 15:1-
“A gentle answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger.”
I have often been called a “firecracker”. I tend to uhm say the first things that comes to mind (*slowly hides behind hands) which is honestly not the best thing to always do. Over the years, I have literally had to train myself to not do this as much. Although I still slip up sometimes, I would like to think (fingers crossed) that I have gotten better. I have learned throughout time that most of the time, less is more & showing grace is always the right answer.
Being “gentle” with words that we use on a regular basis is so so important! When we were little we were taught that “sticks & stones might break our bones, but words will never hurt us” (#throwback). This is probably one of the biggest lies children are taught because the truth is- words do hurt & you can never take them back. Hurtful words have the power to break down someones confidence, ruin someones day, and just plain ole’ hurt someones feelings. On the other hand, gentle, positive words have the power to inspire, empower and just make us feel fab! This week my challenge for you is to be gentle with your words. Remember that you have to make someones day, just by reacting in an unexpected way in a less than perfect situation.
