Words are messengers.
Words are powerful.
As you spend time with family during this holiday season, listen more. Think and absorb. Speak deliberately.
If someone uses words that you find personally offensive, choose to not be offended. Do not react in an emotional way that you could later regret.
Instead, use your own words as a source of light and love.
Remember that we are in control of our emotions, our lives. We have the power to lift others up, to love ourselves, and to speak light into any darkness.
Know that your words are powerful. They can be used for creation or for destruction.
Choose to create light with your actions and words.
Be light. Be love.
Speak light. Speak love.
