Is There Truth To The Saying “We Are What We Speak?”

Our Words Have POWER!

My good friend and I recently had a conversation about watching the words that come from our mouths. We both curse a lot and want to change.

Telling The Truth. Not Every Day Is A Good Day.

I’ve been conditioned like everyone else only to share the happier parts. Continue reading
