This week I’m celebrating words.
Even when you think you’re not being heard at that moment, people usually are listening at what you’re saying. You’ll be surprised at how and when they take it to heart.
It can be a little comment about how they look or how they did a certain thing. Hopefully, what you said, however trivial, was something positive or constructive and not negative or hurtful.
Words are powerful. Use them to make the world a better place. Use them to make everyone around you become their best selves.
Living in Portland, words are often shared in creative ways. There’s the gross graffiti kind (often referred to as tagging) that shows total disrespect for other people’s property. But, luckily, some people are channeling that into art- dedicating some space where they can express themselves artistically.
Words (in the form of books) are shared through Little Free Libraries. Find out more about them here. Here are two I ran across just this week:
Words (in the form of poems) are shared through Poetry Posts. Here are a couple I came across recently- with the first one dubbed as a “poetree”:
And, the latest newsmaker has been the Wishing Tree where people can write their wishes on tags and hang them on branches!
What are you celebrating this week?
