The power of words

Words.  They can change your mood or world in a heartbeat. They can make you smile, they can make you cry.  They can make you seethe or make you fall in love. Something so simple, yet complicated. Words can be your bond or feel as empty as a desert.

It is amazing how powerful words are.  Who would have thought that different combinations of 26 letters could have so many meanings and convey so many things. They tell stories of who we are, where we come from, or of fantastical places and people.

When you understand the weight that the words we say carry, we will truly understand the effect we can have on others. If words are used to manipulate or influence for personal gain, they lose their meaning and credibility.

I want to believe in words again.  I do not want to discount them until they are followed by action.  Some words have no action to back them up, yet I have a hard time believing.
