Words Matter

Words Matter!  Your words matter.  You have the incredible opportunity to build people up every day in every interaction you have.

You don’t have to have a title to speak respectfully to someone.  You don’t have to take a three week course to learn how to do it.

I believe we all have it inside of us.  The ability to make a positive impact on those around us.

It’s a matter of choice.  Don’t let outside influences or a negative situation make you forget that words matter.

The most important decision you make today will be to speak positively and respectfully to those around you.

This is the first step in making a difference in the world around you.  Everyone’s world could use someone to help make a difference with a kind word.  Let that be you today.

I’m cheering for you.
