There are many sayings about words such as: A picture is worth a thousand words, actions speak louder than words and etc. We as boomers have taught and heard powerful words.. We smiled when we heard some small words spoken for the first time by our grandchildren and children before them.
Remember the first time that you heard the word Mama or Da Da uttered from a babies voice. If you didn’t have children of your own then maybe there was a time that you heard just your name spoken from a little one. I bet you smiled. As adults maybe it would be good to go back and focus on small words that create positive reactions for us and others.
When we practice small things like small words it will give us the power to grow and experience what is good in each other. It is simple and free.
