retake

words are precious. through words we express what we feel. through words we validate ourselves and others. through words we love. through words we hurt. through words we try to understand. through words we speak the truth. though words we speak a lesser truth. through words we lie and hide. through words we anticipate reactions. through words we make promises. through words we live by.

words are very important to me.

we are blessed with the ability to say things. whatever we want to say. however we want to say. in what we chose to say, positive words or negative words, speaks of whether we appreciate what we so often take for granted.

"speak when you are angry and you will make the best speech you will ever regret"

but speak when you love, you will never regret

The Chinese also have a saying, "when angry do not write letters, when happy do not make promises."
