Our words have power. Let’s use them wisely.

Written by Jamie Martin, editor of Simple Homeschool and Steady Mom

I‘m popping in today to let you know about my guest post over at my friend (& contributor here) Jessica’s blog, Life as Mom. My post is called Stop Whining and Start Living: Understanding the Power of our Words.

Here’s an excerpt:

“There was a time when I used my words in a bad, self-defeating way. When my husband arrived home from work, I greeted him with tears and a litany of tales from our two toddler boys’ craziness.

(But oh my goodness – weren’t they cute?!)

I couldn’t believe how hard I worked all. day. long. This motherhood gig wasn’t exactly how I had imagined. I felt I had every justifiable right to discuss, in detail, the challenges from my day.

I didn’t realize that with each negative remark I made life even harder on myself.

In Western culture complaining has become a birthright, a way of life, a habit. So much so that many of us don’t realize how much we speak negatively — about lives that many of our third-world neighbors would eagerly trade places with us for.

What exactly is wrong with complaining and a little venting anyway?”

I’d love for you to join me over there to read the rest.
