Think for just a minute about how many times you text someone in a day. Think about how many times you call someone.
Consider how many times you have a face to face conversation, with a friend or colleague.
How many of those conversations are spent saying something kind, something meaningful? How many are filled with words of anger or hate?
We do not realize the power that our words can have.
Words can build up those around you. They can bring a smile to a frowning face.
Words can break the back or a weary traveler. They can destroy an already fragile self-esteem.
When I first started working at Wendy’s, I was terrified. I had no prior experience working in the “real world”.
Heck, I didn’t really know how to function. I was so nervous and so shy.
I tried my best to be someone that people would like. I put on a facade.
The thing that brought me out of my shell was one coworker with a quirky sense of humor.
I was having a rough night, running behind on tasks for the close. All of a sudden, I hear the most amazing thing ever-
“The Krusty Krab pizza is the pizza for you and… MEEEEE!”
I laughed so hard I cried. I felt so much better.
I knew then that I could just be myself at work, and wouldn’t have to worry about being someone I wasn’t.
Is it one of my biggest dreams to make someone smile every day. No matter what kind of day I am having, I want someone else to feel better.
With that in mind, I present a challenge- Say something meaningful and kind to someone once a day. More if you so choose!
I can guarantee that you, and the person you talk to, will feel so much better.
Make you who you are
Keep them close”
Robin Williams once said “No matter what people tell you, words and ideas can change the world”
What you say, and how you say it, can change the world.
You can change the world.
