The Tongue Can Build or Destroy

Hello everyone and welcome to my blog again. I am thrilled to be back and sharing my journey with you in my writing: things that matter to my heart

As I was pondering through life and things, I battled with the thought of thinking and wondering: how many times as humans do we say things to people that break them or we later realized or thought we could not have said them. I know it looks and sound simple from the surface, but do we ever even think about the severity and their impact in other people’s life.

Emotions are real; and feelings are a serious battle that we never think about it very deeply. We always want to use words that are positive to make someone feel better, but the real hurt and pain is there. Imagine the struggle to mend a broken wood; the battle to put it back to its original state. It’s not an easy thing, we try but we don’t always win. It is only by grace to be able to restore what was broken back to it’s original state

When someone does not come back to you and tell his/her feelings about what you said doesn’t mean it was OK. We are not in control of how people react towards what we say to them, but one thing that I know for sure and have learned is that, we are in control of what we say. We can choose what we say to others. This is the power we have and we can use it to control what comes out of our mouth

There is this saying,

Matthew 15:18; “But what comes out of the mouth proceeds from the heart, and this defiles a person.”

Experience and life taught us that what we say with our mouths has its roots in the hearts. This is the beginning of everything. But when we ensure that we feed our hearts with good things always, we take out good always.

Have a blessed week further and “Be Good; and Do Good.” Love is contagious and when we pass the bug, everyone around you catches it. Act of good will leaves a good mark rather than a scar to someone.

With Love ❤️

A realist, always fond of things that are real and matters. The lover of writing and a staunch reader, growing up with a burning passion of writing. I always have a pen a pad with me, life is a story that I never want to miss writing about. It always fascinates me when we are categorized as introverts and extroverts because that on its own is the reason behind every personality. I grew up being referred to as an “introvert” and I later understood the personality behind it: quite, reserved, peaceful, creative mind & thinking; antisocial and very analytical. Being in that space I always knew that as a writer or reader you cannot do that in a noisy or busy place; you need a quite and peaceful environment. It is interesting how I found myself being able to fit all that I love doing in this space that I find myself loving because I fit so perfectly (besides the stereotypes, it is the truth): they all fit, my list is endless but what I know for sure is that “I am born an artist” I am married to my loving and supportive husband for 23 years, Collen and we are blessed with four children; three adult boys; all grown ups and the youngest teen daughter who is still with us and in high school. I am University graduate with a B.A degree in Social Science (majored in Psychology, Sociology and Anthropology), graduated with MBA in Sports in 2011. Worked for more 13 years until 2009 when we began our diplomatic life as a family. What I am grateful for is that there is always a bigger plan and things happen for a reason. Although mostly often, we do not have answers; all that matters is that we share those experiences and life lessons to inspire and lift others up. This is my passion and I am thrilled by challenges; good or bad and my mind likes solving mysteries that I believe are real; sometimes hidden and not spoken about. My favorite authors Danielle Steel and Agatha Christie always challenges my thinking and approach in life. I began reading their books from 14 years and I am still their fan reader. They share their stories in writing and as someone who likes sharing, I quickly connected with them My life is all about the real world: family, marriage, relationships, health, children, parenting, spirituality, cooking, leisure, travel, reading, writing, engaging, connecting, encouraging......I love sharing Sharing is golden
