I love the idea of being subject to one another, but even more than that, I love the idea that words, when spoken out loud become more than just their meaning.
In my job I use words in powerful ways. The words themselves are incredibly important, but sometimes, even more importantly is the way that we say them.
You can lift someone with your voice, or you can relax them to the point of sleep. You can energise and invigorate or you can make them so sad they are brought to tears.
More times than not, it is not what we say, but how we say it.
Try to think about how you want your words to come across and make an effort to ensure that’s what you send out into the world.
Written words can be difficult to interpret sometimes because they don’t come with the other persons voice. Whenever you read something, try to hear it in a kind voice – one that cares about you. You’ll be surprised what sort of a difference that can make.
