The Words You Need

the words you need to hear

Words have energy and power with the ability to help, to heal, to hinder, to hurt, to harm, to humiliate and to humble. – Yehuda Berg

You hear thousands of words every day. Some words are necessary while other words are worthless. Some words offer guidance while other words criticize. Some words make you smile while other words lead to anger. Some words bring peace while other words are empty.

But no matter their degree of kindness or level of bitterness, words connect – for better or worse.

So, on the days when the words you need to hear have been left unspoken, let these words encourage you and find their way to your heart:

You are beautiful.

Try again tomorrow.

You were born to be you, not to be perfect.

It’s okay. Everything will be fine.

You are enough.

Be patient. The best things happen unexpectedly.

You deserve to be happy.

you deserve to be happy

Sometimes you have to let go and see what happens.

Be sure to enjoy today.

Stay strong.

Do more of what makes you happy.

If you never try you’ll never know.

Live your life and forget your age.

live your life no matter your age

Believe in yourself.

Trust your struggle.

Actually, you can.

Storms don’t last forever.

Take a deep breath and enjoy your life.

Prove them wrong.

You never know who needs you.

Focus on what’s good.

Mistakes are proof you are trying.

    I think you summed it up best right there in that last sentence. Mistakes are proof you’re trying. Yeah trying anything comes with the risk of failure but that failure builds character, strength and the fortitude to continue one with things much harder in future. Really enjoy reading words with such wisdom, it helps lighten a heart heavy with the reminder of 9/11 on everyone’s social news feed today.
