What words are you using to describe yourself or identify with?
Are they positive or negative?
Some positive words we can use include: adaptable, adventurous, beautiful, ambitious, amiable, compassionate, considerate, courageous, handsome, courteous, creative, cute, diligent, generous, passionate, pretty, persistent, reliable, resourceful, sincere and witty just to name a few. How many more words can you add to this list?
Some negative words include: arrogant, boastful, bossy, cruel, deceitful, dishonest, harsh, selfish, irresponsible, lazy, unattractive, mean, unreliable, ruthless, ugly, resentful, rude, self-centred and untrustworthy just to name a few. There are so much more but why focus on the negative?
I can honestly say that I have identified with a few of these words at one point or another but I didn’t stay there and neither do you. I chose a different path and created a better version of myself. It did not happen overnight but each day I made a choice to improve and I did just that.
Pay close attention to the labels you choose to associate and identify with. Take corrective action where you think necessary. Even though we aren’t perfect that does not mean we should not try to be better human beings.
Words are just words. The meaning and power words have is what we give to them.
This is important because the words we choose to identify with can either strengthen and reinforce our core or they can weaken our very foundation.
Make some time for yourself this week to write down all the positive words you can that identifies you as a person, if you’re not happy where you’re at today, you can write out words that describe who you would like to become.
Have a blessed day! Thanks for stopping by.
