Your Words Changed My Life

Words have the power to harm, hurt, heal and transform.  How will you use yours?

Words can make us or break us.  Lift us up or tear us down.   Bring us joy and last our whole life long. 

What words spoken by another do you carry around with you today which are echoes from words said in bitterness, rage or anger?  

What words do you remember which made your heart sing? 

Each of us has an inspiring message to share.  A unique voice waiting to be heard.  Many say in a small and childlike voice ”if only I were brave enough.”

What aren’t you saying which needs to be expressed either by talking it through or journaling? 

The words trapped inside once released can be transformational.  Pivotal.  Life-changing and lifesaving.

Sharing what we have to say with positive intention and love offers immense value to those on the receiving end of our communication.  Speaking freely from your heart sharing your love, kindness and consideration inspires others to share the voice of their heart.

What words would you have liked to have heard growing up? 

Which specific words do you wish your spouse, boss, or family member would say or have said in the past? 

What were the ‘missing words’ you never heard from that one person whose words would have made all the difference to you now? 

Say those words to yourself right now. Remind yourself of these words every day until you believe them for yourself.  ‘’I love you.’’ ‘’You are amazing.’’ ‘’It’s great having you here on this team.’’ ‘’You mean so much to me.’’ ‘’Thank you.’’  ”You rock.” ”You are the best.”

If you don’t share your words, they stay locked away inside.   Don’t die with your words inside you. 

Set your words free.   It’s never too late to say ‘’I’m sorry,” ”I forgive you.” or ‘’I love you’’ to yourself or another.  

May your words change lives.  Heal.  Help.  Transform. 

Go share your words now.  Someone’s life may depend on them including your own…

Creative Play – Writing by Hand

Your handwriting is personal and intimate in the same way your voice and fingerprint is unique. 

In my work as a therapist, writing and creativity coach, it never ceases to amaze me how much fun adults can have when they bring the creative play to writing.  As adults we forget to play and miss out having fun. 

Whether it’s finger painting, conducting a ‘word’ orchestra with fingertips and making the shapes of letters in the air, writing with pasta shapes or etchings in the sand, creating and expressing freely ignites the heart. 

When you make time for play, writing can be fun.  Choosing to express yourself fully in the written word by hand transmits the voice of your heart to paper.  Creative play in whatever shape or form makes the journey of your personal and writers evolution a magical one. 

Don’t take my word for it.  Try out for yourself.  Notice your energy and joy for life rise and your productivity increase. 

Today, tomorrow, every day of your life.  Write and play from your heart.
