We have all heard the expression, “it’s not what you say, but how you say it that matters most.” I believe the same is true in our writing. If we take the time to get in touch with the emotional charge (energy) that lies behind our thoughts, before they become words, putting ourselves in the other’s shoes, what comes out in our writing is loving and kind…(even if it is not pleasant to write about or to even speak about). When we aim or writing in this direction it is not so much about “winning” (I can’t say that word now without picturing Charlie Sheen!) but about creating a sacred space for you to write, communicate and share. Today make a conscious effort and intention to make yourself heard (either by the spoken or written word) in a manner that is nonthreatening, nonshaming and peaceful.
