Using Your Words

The beauty of a language relies on it’s sound and word arrangements.

Words can carry so much power and convey how we  truly feel. Because they carry so much weight, to effectively communicate we need to choose the words we say and better yet, how we say them.This is definitely a skill to be learned, and as with any skill to perfect it you must practice to become better at it.Effective communication is essential within many aspects of everyday life: the workplace, within the family structure,school,marriage.

Now people often times figure if they talk to someone there are communicating, however what is the content of your conversation? If you are just having the whole”surfacy” conversation or that ever so polite conversation, you may be talking but not saying so much.But depending on the person and relationship that may be fine and dandy.But when dealing with a more personal relationship there has to be a more in depth conversation to get to the subject at hand.

Another part of the process is being able to listen(which is just is important as talking)with and open ear and mind.Sometimes if we just take the time to truly listen, we can get the perspective of the other person and have a much better understanding of the issue.You still may agree to disagree, and that is fine, differences in opinions and views make the world an interesting place .

The whole art of verbal communication can never, or will ever be a lost form no matter how many texts or emails we can send….lol.


Defying Sterotypes

Today’s typical grandparents are defying the stereotypes of what we may remember our grandparents to be because they are younger than ever before.About 43 percent became grandparents in their fifties, and about 37 percent became grandparents in their forties. Grandparents because they are younger are more in touch and more relatable to the grandchildren which is an extra added bonus to the hugs, kisses,and secret stash of treats that are reserved just for the kiddies. Grandpops,and Mimis,Pop-pops, and Gigis are still working, playing sports,shopping and paying bill online(no check writing),and a part of social networks as well. One thing remains the same , grandparents no matter what the age , will always provide a certain love and enrichment in the grandchildren’s lives that can not be replaced.There just has to be a healthy balance between letting grandparents still live their own independent and vibrant lives and helping out with the grandchildren.

Trying New Things

When i first wake up in the morning i have my “one on one”with the man upstairs to give thanks for having yet another day to get things right.Second i have my cup of tea,when i do my thinking,create my to do list for the day,goals perhaps for the week.One day over my piping hot cup,i brewed up an idea as well.An idea that would have me move out on faith and walk out on courage.I decided i wanted a change of career,more fulfilling,and make money while doing it.The hardest step in the process would just be to get started. We find many ways in life to impede our own progress by not TRYING to move forward, not being confident in our own choices.Failures in life are inevitable, but as long as you survive your mistake,you go forth with a different approach to achieve your desired goal.I would like to ¬†introduce you to myself , Mrs Dee….an up and coming freelance blogger.
