Lovely Words

As a writer, I love words. It's helpful in my chosen profession. And I love the subtle differences a simple word choice can make.

Did you fall...or were you pushed?
Did you crash...or did you stumble?
Are you broken...or are you bent?

I've got some friends who are going through some stuff right now. Maybe you do, too, because it seems we are all always going through stuff, or know someone who is. Regardless, we should all make sure we are choosing our words, and picking the ones that actually define the situation. 

Because bent may feel broken, but it's not the same.

Those are Pobble Thoughts. That and a buck fifty will get you a Starbucks mocha latte.

Sometimes you have to get to the other side of whatever you're going through to accurately describe it though. Bent/Broken for example, how many of us haven't been positive we'd never love again, we were so broken. But time healed it and we went on to bigger and better things?
