What did you say?!?

"Those are bad words, she knows those are bad words because from time to time her mother says similar words and tells her those are bad words."

10 Types of Moms that Suck

I just started reading the article in the link above and the line I highlighted inspired some thought for me. There have been so many times I have caught myself telling my five year old a word is bad.  I say caught myself because I don't consciously believe words are bad.  I find there are really great words and good words and no words are bad.

I have attempted to explain to my extremely verbal child that we should think before
we speak and acknowledge that with speech comes responsibility.  I attempt to live by Speak with and from Integrity.  It's not always easy, especially if I let my emotions get a hold of me and I forget to pause.

I explain to him how language is so powerful. I drive home the notion that there is a sort of mysticism when you are able to create a tapestry of color and light with only's not alchemy, it's MAGIC.

Nevertheless, I hope I can teach and coach my son to thrive. grow, and love in all healthy ways. Also, I pray he remembers Words are worlds, worlds are created by our words and I hope he remembers all words are either good or great. :)

Love transcends all things.  Trust in the wonder and power of your dreams.

Thank you for reading and Sharing.

Sharing is caring!
Love exists and Life is a miracle, treat it all as such.
In possibility,
