I hope everyone had a good holiday weekend ! Today I’d like to talk about WORD WORRY. We all have it. What to say what not to say or how to say it.. I think this is an important worry that we will have for our entire lives. It shows we mature, it proves we care, and it role models for our children.
In my home, it is important to me that my son does not hear any debating/arguments, that he and my dog ( they get it to) aren’t around when the grown ups aren’t so happy, or discussing things that they don’t need to be involved or bothered with. Finances, tragedies, not so happy things, etc. Why, because it causes worry but not the good kind, and it may contain words not good for ears. That’s the point of my WORD WORRY. Not all words are good to hear and say and some are simply splendid.
fir example, when my son wakes up during the night wanting to talk about the fan and I’ve only gotten a total of 5 hours of sleep in two weeks, well it’s time to WORD WORRY. Children, don’t have to worry about their words as little gals and guys; we the adults teach them. So whoever raised you began that journey for you. Next, your friends and teachers influence your word worry as you didn’t worry about your words really until then.
Finally, the jobs, social settings, dating, and then the role as a grown up, a worker, a best friend, a spouse, and or a parent. These are the most significant times as what you say, how you say it, and who you say it to, sticks like glue. Do you remember the saying “sticks and stones will break my bones but words will never hurt me ?” Well that’s a crock of poo if you ask me.
People who are kind, compassionate, and see that the world isn’t seen in rose colored glasses but through heart and hard work, well it’s easy for people like that, people like us, to get hurt. I made a mental list over the weekend of things that hurt me overtime, and most of them were derived from words. What was said, who said it, and why it was said to me. So I thought today, maybe we can let go of what is said to us, and make mental notes of the positives we are, forget who or how things are said to us, and be better than that.
Today I wish for you all to remember the steps of WORD WORRY:
- What you say
- How you say it
- Who you say it to
- Timing of your words
- Will they hurt, offend, or destroy someone you know or don’t know
Have a blessed day.
PS a special blog shout out to my brother. Happy birthday.🎉🎈🎁🎂
Today’s worry free recipe :
No bake Oreo pie.
One already made graham cracker or Oreo pie crust. One cream cheese packet. I like the whipped ones by the Philadelphia cream cheese brand. One cup of sugar, one tub of cool whip,and crushed Oreos. Any kind. Mix all the ingredients minus the crust in a bowl, then add them into the crust. Keep in refrigerated for 20mins then decorate the top how you want it, adding lore toppings if you like, then serve to eat.
