Blog 3/365 Choose Carefully

"Sticks and stones can break my bones, but words can never hurt me!"
WRONG! Words can hurt!

Some say..."Spit it out and clean it up later." Friends, I urge you to express your emotions but to also choose your words carefully. Once you have spoken or written something, you are accountable.

One of my primary motivators for writing this blog was to be held accountable. This "digital ink", comes from my heart and will precede my actions...actions, I hope you in turn hold me accountable for.

Serious question time...Do you know what a Thesaurus is?

All jokes aside...when was the last time you used a thesaurus? Being that we just started "Journal Challenge 2011," I felt it was worth noting the fun one can have with a Thesaurus. They are an avenue to discover words of additional depth and description. They allow us greater creativity and provide us an opportunity to grow.

(My Thesaurus...thank you Apple widget!)

You know one of my tag lines is "Always living, always learning, always laughing, always loving"...Well a Thesaurus allows us to Live and Love with greater descriptive accuracy and creativity. While some may Laugh at our word choice, normally in ignorance, we continue to Learn. So I ask you again...when was the last time you used a Thesaurus? Your Thesaurus wants to be your friend....Have fun with your words!


Make it a great day...or in Thesaurus lingo..."fashion an exceptional twenty-four hour period!" haha:-)

with love, Suchie
