Saturday 25th August is Speak Kind Words Saturday. A day to choose your words carefully, not to offend and discourage. As you have gathered, I love words and aim to inspire and encourage people with them. However, many times I have heard people say things to others which I felt they should have consulted their brain before their mouth. Rather than retaliate, people bite their tongue until blood comes out and then I walk away. I will however be taping my mouth all of Saturday, just in case I come across any of those foot in mouth people – I don’t want to let the side down. Hopefully, Speak Kind Words Saturday will become infectious and will last all week, or longer.
Positive and kind words can empower, encourage, motivate and help move someone towards their goals. Always choose words that can heal and not destroy –
