The Power of Words



Words can harm or heal. Because words have power. They can inspire us or even paralyse us.

In life, it pays to be mindful of our words as much as the dialogue that we have with ourselves in our heads.

Sometimes, even we are not aware of how much “damage” we do to ourselves with our internal dialogues.

So, having positive thoughts and keeping a happy mind are truly beneficial – not only to ourselves, but also to those around us.

I have been very fortunate to have some small ability to play with words.

Words have become my “platform” to interact with the world outside of me. Words have also become a way for me to serve others around me.

I feel very blessed to be able to have words weave beautiful friendships and meaningful exchanges throughout my life.

The great discourses in my life have been borne out of words.

Hence, the poem is dedicated to my families, friends, fans, followers and readers – For they inspire to write better. Above all, to  share more openly and honestly – giving of myself through words.

I thank each and every one of them 🙂

Being Afraid Is Human, But Staying Afraid Is A Choice.

    Words are not just tool to communicate, to be understood, but furthermore, this same word or term is also a reflection of who the person is. One can rightfully determined the person’s character the manner he/she chooses words in order to express oneself. In the field of linguistics, there is this axiom, that language[s] reflects one’s culture and society. Hence, words are the rhythm of humanity, which all of us, should be circumspective about. Kind regards, Ms. Shirley Maya.
