The power of words

Hi again I know i haven't posted in a long time but i am back yay anywho moving on to the post.

Have you ever thought about words. I know that sounds weird but for a minute think about it we all say or type hundreads sometimes thousands of words a day. And if you take a moment you may realize how much of an impact they have on us. Words can change our lives, inspire us, make us wonder, make us laugh, encourage us to keep moving foward, comfort us, make us feel loved, teach us something new. However it can also break our hearts, make us doubt, break us down, make us question who we are, hurt us, make us feel alone.

Whether we realize it or not the words we speak or type have a huge amount of impact on others its all in the delievery and the words we choose. Its easy to type or say something and move on but do we ever stop to think what our words meant to someone. How much something so simple can hurt someone so much even days or months after we spoke/typed them. Its a problem both ways but even more so online since its easier to speak our minds without doing it face to face.

so instead of criticizing or getting involved in debates or fights (especially when you don't have the full story) or speaking out in the heat of the moment and letting your emotions get the best of you. Think what you are going to say over, think how it will be taken and how hurt someone may be because of it then think is it worth it. Now i am not saying to back down and let people walk all over you or not letting your opinions be heard but plan it out, make sure that you left out personal attacks or didn't say or type anything that may hurt someone. I mean we are all guilty of it and if you do hurt someone own up to it apologize and make it right between you because chances are if you are talking to someone you care for them and love them and don't let some silly argument let that break you apart and if you don't like someone well don't waste your emotion or your breath on them.

and instead of being negative be postive you will feel better about yourself and will make others feel better. comment a encouraging comment on someone's fanfic or blog or picture, send an uplifting pm or email to someone who is going through hard times, say hello or have a nice day to a stranger, send an email letting someone know you care or are thinking of them, encourage others to live their dreams, everyone needs someone to believe in them and have faith in them someone they can turn to and have faith in when all else fails be that person. Bring other spirtis up and your spirit will be lifted up too.

words do have an impact make sure your words are leaving a postive uplifting impact.

Love you all thanks for reading God bless

remember to love others as God has love you.

At The Edge of Control

Ever have those days or times, when you start to feel that you are not in control or at the very edge of losing it. Yep that is where I am right now. So much is going on right now and I am at the point where I feel I am going to lose it all. So a fair warning this post is going to be kind of angry and complainy like but I will try to stay a bit positve.

Okay let me explain first what is going on to make me feel like this, and there are several factors (some seem trivial but considering what else is going on my brain or heart really can't handle it right now). First and probably the biggest thing is tommrow my mom is going in for back surgery and i have to go to work the same time she is going to be in surgery, and honestly I am freaking out a bit, I am a bit worried about her and how the surgery is going to go. I know that it is in God's hands and that helps a bit but not entirely I can't help but worry and the fact that I won't be there or even in contact with her or family to see how she is doing til late afternoon doesn't help at all.

Next there is trouble with the beloved Lakehouse. I fear that I have hurt at least one of my fellow sisters and will probably invertably hurt more before it all clears up. part of me wants to back down and pretend nothing is wrong but when does that ever work? and it will most likely come out in a way i don't want it to. (kind of like it did last night). Thank goodness I have support from one or two of my fellow sisters, I am not alone through this. And i hope and pray to God, nothing i say will be taken personal and will make things better for everyone involved. (I know this explanation is vague but those involved either know or will know soon enough).

Plus school has me stressed out. I think I am doing ok in classes but I got a few bad grades so far and I want and need to do well. I can't take anymore setbacks and I'm starting to think taking 5 courses was a mistake, hopefully i will make it through and pass all of them.

Bur there is good news. I know I have God on my side. and though this is the first time i'm really speaking about this I know God has given me an incredibly supportive family and friends both "real life" and especially my online friends (i just hope nothing happens to make them hate me). *sigh* and i know well enough that this too shall pass. All we can do when times like this show up is pray and do the best we can knowing God put us here for a reason and hope we learn something or improve ourselves during this time.

like one of my favorite songs says "God gave us mountains so we could learn how to climb"

and of course we can always find those songs that make us feel better here are some of my faves

Love the band ABBA, this song is so comforting i love this song last week i listened to it over and over again.

This is one of my favorite Chruch hymms

Well thats all i have for now thanks for reading. And to all my friends onlineline and real and my family you are all amazing and i have no idea where i would be without any of you. I love you all

Remember to love one another as God has loved you and God bless
