Talking with a friend recently, made me think about the power our words have on each other. Especially these days with social media, people can break each other down behind the safety of their computer/phone/device so easily without even realizing it's happening. I've noticed it specifically lately, seeing people with chronic conditions judging others on Instagram, seeing moms judging the way other moms do things on Facebook, and it saddens me since we could be using those words and building each other up. Imagine if we could be a light to those around us, be the source of encouragement to someone who may be really needing it. It may be our spouse, our friends, co-workers, or the cashier at the grocery store. 

 We all have our own storms in life or difficulties we're trying to overcome. 
Let's stand alongside each other and work together - on the same team. 

I heard this song on my way home and I've heard it many times before, but with that conversation in mind, this song really hit me. Our words have power to help or hurt, to build up or break down. We don't know what others are going through, and they may need to hear love, why not speak love to them?

I'm in this with you and think we could really change lives by the words we speak. Let's let our words be those of love, encouragement, acknowledgement, affirmation, and inspiration.
