Words As Weapons

Our words can be a dangerous weapon,
so we need to always
think before we speak
A fired bullet
can never be put back into a gun
So when your emotions run high,
pause and take a moment
to choose your words carefully
Remember…
your words can either
hurt or help someone
depending upon its intent

Follow Your Own Path

Don’t try to imitate or follow
another person’s journey
just because they found success
It’s easy to be swayed
into thinking
you can do it too
but
your path is your own
follow it
and trust that
you’ll end up
where you’re supposed to be

A Day That Changes Everything

Sometimes,
a day comes that changes everything
It could be an opportunity,
or it could be an obstacle
It could be for good
or it could be bad
Regardless of what it is,
the secret
to making it through is
you must embrace it
with eyes wide open
and accept it for what it is
No matter what the outcome,
as long as you have a positive attitude
while continuing to go forward
the end result will be beneficial to you

Honor The Process

Writing is a process
A process of deliberate practice
A practice of effort over time
and in time, results in creativity
Writing is focused on progression
rather than perfection
Writing is the practice of
finding joy in words and sharing them
Perfection is the end result
The result determines
if joy is achieved
Regardless of results,
there is no stopping point
There may be milestones to celebrate
but,
writing is a lifetime journey
Writing is ultimately a choice
If you choose this path…
honor the process

Never Stop Learning

Writing
is an evolving art form,
so never stop learning
The moment you stop
and
think you know all there is to know,
then you should quit
Writing is a craft
that requires constant learning
You learn about yourself,
you learn from other writers
and you learn from life
So stay motivated
and
continue your education
