I have chosen "WORDS" as my one word for 2013!

Words was also my one word in 2012.

2012:
It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair....

A truly paradoxical year....

LOL so many words, so little ...

LOL so many words, so little time.

Follows are my random ponderings about Words

What you say can preserve life or destroy it; so you must accept the consequences of your words. Proverbs 18:21

But no one has ever been able to tame the tongue. It is evil and uncontrollable, full of deadly poison. James 3:8

Remember this, my dear friends! Everyone must be quick to listen, but slow to speak and slow to become angry. James 1:19

"Sticks and stones will break my bones , but words will never hurt me!"

I've often wondered if that was the first lie I learned to tell myself, when I was 5 or 6 years old on the schoolyard playground. For some reason a classmate decided she didn't like me and took particular pleasure in humiliating me in front of as many of the other children as she could gather to "her side". I repeated that phrase over and over to myself while trying to block out the taunts and name calling. I can still see her leading the "charge" with nearly every other child on the playground lined up behind her, running downthe hill while I tried in vain to find a hiding place.

25 years later I would often see that childhood nemisis while shopping at the local mall. She never failed to laughingly remind me of that time in our young lives. I never laughed with her. Instead I felt small, intimidated and humiliated all over again.

Words do hurt! Words wound us deep within ourselves, and leave an imprint of that wound which waits to be healed. We are mostly unaware of those wounds until they begin to fester and cause us difficulty and pain in our daily lives.

It takes 7 to 10 positives to cancel out one negative! Words, thoughts, incidents, memories....negativity beats us down and makes us feel less. The lesser we feel the more difficult it is to look at the positive side of things. You know that negative feeling that comes over you when your feelings get hurt? Sinking butterfly feeling in the pit of your stomach? Coldness starting in the head as the blood drains? Weakness in your arms and watery knees?

My ex used to say it's over and done with forget it and move on? If only it were as easily done as said.

It's not always the words that are said, but the tone of voice, or the context. Many times it's a simple misunderstanding of a word or phrase that was intended to uplift and motivate. As a co-leader of a team with members from all over the world I've been the mediator in more than a few of this type of misunderstanding.

I come from a PA Dutch background. Vee talk goodt even if we don't speak well. We say I seen something instead of I saw something, prolly instead of probably, figger instead of figure. There are times when I'm in hurry I will write the way I speak. I am often misunderstood, and have hurt peoples feelings because of it.

I love words, learning new ones and their meanings. I'm going to subscribe to a word of the day for the New Year. I hope the year will be one of learning new things both intellectually and about myself.

This shall be my daily prayer
Set a watch, O LORD, before my mouth; keep the door of my lips. Psalm 141:3 Lord let my words bring health and comfort to all!

My Goals:
This is the same as the day I joined SP. I still hate setting goals, but I am doing better.

Goal #1... WATER
Goal #2... Planning and tracking

It's easy to set goals but difficult to attain them, so I stopped setting them a long time ago. Spark goal setting is a challenge in itself for me, but i am determined to set one small goal at a time, and when I reach that I will set another.

My Program:
Eating Intuitively and a gradual change to eating as clean as possible.
I promise myself to try to be the best me I can be each day. I KNOW all the right things to do. it's taking charge and applying those things that is difficult for all of us.

Personal Information:
I live in small town Central PA. I work in a Social Services setting where I deal with people every day. I love my job. Through work I teach an exercise class called Strong Women.

emoticon Happy Sunday! Thank you for visiting my page with your sweet message on my Leader spotlight day! Today's inspiration is brought to you by : Don Lancaster

Most "impossible" goals can be met simply by breaking them down into bite size chunks, writing them down, believing them, and then going full speed ahead as if they were routine.

So here's to making your goals and breaking them down, writing them down and believing you can achieve them so you can start your full force speed towards getting them as we begin our new week! Have an emoticon Sunday! emoticon emoticon
