A good man eats good from the fruit of his mouth. —Proverbs 13:2
We talk a lot, and quite often pay no attention to what we are saying, let alone think seriously about the impact of our words. But if we are honest with ourselves, we may find some of our moods— good and bad—are directly linked to our conversations.
Anytime you become aware of your mood, whether you are feeling a bit gloomy or feeling cheerful and blessed, you should ask yourself: What have I been talking about? Soon you will begin to see how your words connect to your moods and attitudes.
Why not decide each day before you even get out of bed to ask God to help you talk about only things that benefit you and everyone who hears you? Since we have the power to make our days better, we would be foolish indeed if we didn’t do it.
Power Thought: By God’s grace, I think and speak positive words, reaping the benefits in my moods and attitudes.

I hope this short article inspired you as it had inspired me. Being positive can be powerful and empowers those around you too. I have just came back from a holiday with Kelvin & Isabelle and it was awesome to be able to relax and spend time with loved ones. In between the vacation activities and breaking news on TV, I thought of what Mother Theresa once said:
What can you do to promote world peace? Go home and love your family.
Thank you for reading and may all of you find serenity, enjoy togetherness, love and peace during this festive season :)
Have a great weekend!
