It’s crazy how one sentence can change everything isn’t it? Words are such powerful things that,I especially,need to learn to use with more discretion. Example numero uno. I was having a hard time working the closing shift on a busy Saturday at Starbucks yesterday. I was alone and absolutely nothing was done so instead of screaming my lungs off or throwing a temper tantrum on the middle of the floor (which was my second choice), I went to the back to do a little breathing for a second.
I suck at doing relaxing exercise stuff so instead I checked my phone. I had a new text and half heartedly clicked to see what it was. “I’m proud of you and I love you.” It was my daddy. My dad’s not much of a texter and he is in general, always a man of little words. I spent the rest of my night glowing and trying not to cry from that on top of already having many that-time-of-the-month emotions. What I’m getting at is, use your words wisely. I’ve always been the type of person to just throw whatever I’m feeling out there before thinking it through. I’m learning, through trial and error, everything we say goes a lot farther than most of us realize. Oh,and,I love my daddy.
