Your life is what you speak! Words do not tread lightly. They engulf and intertwine their destination, causing life or destruction. It is your choice.
We as teens are prominent voices for nonliteral comments. We respond with sarcasm and "jokes" not knowing the true impact we have. Our words shape who we are.
For a majority of my youth, I disparaged myself with my words. I would tell myself that I didn't deserve great things, that I was unattractive, and that I wasn't worth talking to. As the words left my mouth, they latched onto my life. Opportunities and awards were out of my reach, I was emotionally torn when I looked in a mirror, and as far as public social interaction goes, I was alone. The worst part was that I continued to believe what I was speaking. However, I corrected my words; I spoke favor, beauty, and friendship into my life. Sure enough, life changed for the better! The positive words immersed my heart and manifested.
You can change your situation with your words. Speak positively, believe great things will happen, and take action to benefit yourself and every living being on Earth. Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof. (Proverbs 18:21 KJV)
Sending out positive vibes, I challenge you to speak life-building words and allow them to attach, grow, and activate!
