Jan 20, 2021 - Yesterday I was walking my dog, Dewey, around Burlington. I came across a woman how looked like she was having a hard time with the parking meter, so I said, "You doing ok?" She was so grateful. She just wanted to be sure she had done it right and there was time on the meter. I checked and it was all good, and she asked if she could give my dog a treat. Kindness matched with kindness. I was struck by how much she appreciated my simple offering and words..and, of course, it made me feel good to ask.
I know that there is the saying, "Actions speak louder than words," but kind words can do so much good, and hateful words can do so much harm. We are definitely moving into a new era in America, and I look forward to words being used to bring us together, as opposed to divide us.
"“But if thought corrupts language, language can also corrupt thought.”
"Try to say nothing negative about anybody for three days, for forty-five days, for three months. See what happens to your life."
Enjoy today's class about the power of words. It's a wonderful day and new beginning!
