Words

Has it ever just hit you how incredible words are? As a people, we have developed different groupings of characters which we choose to string together to express the inner workings of our mind.

Wow.

I was working on a journal entry today for a class and just could not put my finger on the word I was trying to think of. I searched the thesauruses and came up dry. The lack of finding the “perfect” word left me feeling tense and confused beyond belief. 

A grouping of characters. That’s it. That’s all that stands between frustration or satisfaction, perceived intelligence or stupidity. It’s what allows us to express our love for others, but with the same pens we can decree war and devastate a country. We can bless someone with compliments of beauty and grace or we can tear down a person’s confidence and leave them empty.

These little characters, only 26 in the English language, dictate our lives. 

And I think that’s pretty neat.
