Good Words for a Friday in the Rain (11)

 Buddha should have been a blogger on Active Rain. His "good words" from long ago are quite relivant to that which we write of and share in this community we call the "Rain".

Even publishing our words as "Members Only" does not release of of the responsibility of what we write and what we say.

It is fine to find and use words that convey passion, commitment, intelligence, authority, anger, sadness, dreams, doubts, upsets and ideas. But remember, the words we use and how we use them in what we write are mirrors reflecting back who we are, to those who read our words.

Reflect It Forward...

You are right on track. The words we write or utter are the reflections of who we really are. Choose carefully, for the impact could be long lasting!

 Craig, I just came across your Good Words series, great stuff! Sorry I've been out of touch, life & biz became a little too hectic in the past few months but things are getting back to "normal".

 I received your email awhile back, really nice to hear from you. Will be in touch soon re a project I'd like to get your input on. Have a great weekend, be well my friend.

So very true. Words are powerful, they leave an imprint on our brain and on our hearts. There is an expression that I think goes like this "It is better to be silent, and be thought a fool; then to speak and remove all doubt". Have a sparkling day, Rhonda
