What’s in a Word?

Communication has always been an art form that fascinated me.

It takes great character, immense intelligence and talent to create a word in its true meaning. A “word” can tell you a lot about the speaker, his/her beliefs, ideologies and even personality. It is in the choice of words that people can distinguish themselves, they can inspire you, they can intrigue you, they can spellbound you or they can even disinterest you.

With words you can color, paint, narrate, make music, design and do much more. Words can be expressed in so many ways. Words are the most powerful gift we have been offered. Words can be spoken and unspoken, heard and unheard, they can be seen and they can be unseen. As soon as one hears, sees or even feels a word it triggers imagery in his/her mind and so it paints a picture of what the speaker is saying and if you are more of a spiritual person you can even go all the way to decode the intention of the speaker.

My story with words began as soon as I could start writing, and this is how it blossomed:

embrace your words

This year started with an unpleasant note, however, being the self driven person that I am, I decided to find a place to heal..I tried all sorts of techniques until I realized that I had an old WordPress account that needed some revamp. I look at my old account and add some passionate touches to make it more appealing, fortunately as time was my alibi, I felt a stronger desire to start writing again and it all began with the word…

I am a firm believer in energy and I do believe that words have an energy of their own so taking this belief as my starting point, I began writing and writing and writing, I couldn’t stop, I loved every bit of it, and didn’t want my thoughts to end and didn’t want my posts to finish. The best thing that happened to me this year so far, other than me passing my digital marketing postgraduate diploma assignment, is that my theory was proven to be correct, words are energy and what you write will echo in the universe and bring you the answers that your soul desires.

Today, I am happily surrounded by artists, poets, authors, writers, bloggers, designers, thought leaders, and many more charismatic and genuine minds, whose choice of words don’t cease to amaze and fascinate me; I cry with them, I laugh with them, I share their passions and their beliefs, I see beauty through their eyes, I travel the world with them, I learn about new cultures, I sail the oceans and the magical seas, I spread my wings and fly, I enjoy humanity with the words they so humbly share with me.

Now if you ask me what’s in a word? my answer will be: It is all that empowers my world.
