watch your thoughts

words are a gift. not only that, words are a powerful gift.

words are weapons,
they are fire,
they are rocket fuel.

and as such they should be used wisely. they shouldn't be thrown around for fun, or deployed without a second thought. be careful not only of what you say to others, but be aware and careful of what you say to you talk to yourself. start there.

don't down-talk. not even playfully. not even as a joke. never mess around with that, it's way too important. acknowledge the good and the sacred within yourself and respect that by never, never talking yourself down.

words are important. what we say to ourselves is important, and not only that, but it shapes our future. this has always stuck with me:

“Watch your thoughts, they become words;
watch your words, they become actions;
watch your actions, they become habits;
watch your habits, they become character;
watch your character, for it becomes your destiny.”

few words are as true as these. if you do nothing else this year, bring a little more awareness to your words and how you use them to talk to yourself.

stay stoked!


  1. So true! This post really reminded me of "Life and death are in the power of the tongue." <3

  2. 8:10 the words we share are impactful. I think it's easier to be hurt and burned by what's said to yourself negatively then hurting yourself physically.
