I have always enjoyed words whether it’s reading them or writing them. The lure of opening a new book, cracking open the binding and smelling the fresh, unopened pages was my idea of paradise. When I was young I could read anytime, anywhere without ever losing my focus. There could be people talking around me, the TV blaring or music playing, nothing could distract me from the imaginary world of literature.
Likewise writing, my second passion, always was a way to express my thoughts, ideas and feelings. I guess that’s why I love the world of blogging, both writing my own posts and reading the creative work of others who share a similar passion.
Words, whether they are written or spoken, have tremendous power. Letters put together have the ability to sooth, to excite, to hurt and to anger those who read or hear the words the letters create. I choose to or at least try to, use my words to spread positivity. I choose to motivate and inspire love, both of self and towards others. Do I always get it right? No, but I think I get an A for effort!
I try to use my words to guide people towards seeing their worth and untapped potential. I try to help people see that they are good enough and worthy just as themselves, without trying to fit into a mould created by a society too focused on the importance of outer appearance. I want my words to lift people up when too often they are pushed down. My hope is that everyone who writes or speaks will use their words to show people kindness and compassion. Our world needs more words like that.
I am Pretty, Plus and Proud of my words and thankful so many people take the time to read my blog. If I haven’t thanked you personally for your support, be it through your comments, your likes or your choice to follow my blogging journey, know that I am grateful and so very appreciative of each and everyone one of you and am so very happy you enjoy what I have to say. Words have power so use them wisely and carefully.
