Your word becomes your world – Be careful what you wish for…

So, an update on my whole ‘not having an opinion’ journey this year.
I am failing miserably!
It’s like the whole world has come at me and then I forget and have an opinion on everything! Everything!!
People have even offered me money for ‘my opinion’. I guess that is how the world works… on one level?
I made some fairly big life choices too, which have enabled me to be ‘right’ a lot easier.
(Not a bad idea hey, choose stuff that you can’t really be wrong on so that your opinion is right a lot…. Ha ha)
I guess a key learning that I am picking up, probably more from others than myself….( Maybe from just being watchful of opinion)
… Is that the moment you open your mouth with a statement, you become defined by that statement.
Or, if not defined by it, in some way, those words, that perspective, ‘owns’ you.
I have a feeling that many people live shaping their ‘words’ to fit (or just as importantly, not fit) their ‘world’.
Those that do this tend to ‘complain’ more.
Those that appear to have a great ‘vision’ of themselves, or a desire or dream that is solely theirs, you know they ‘feel’ special and see the world as special, that they have a personal purpose; tend to do something quite different.
They tend to have a ‘world’, their world, in which ‘words’ must then fit.
There is a big difference here.
The first is being ruled by language and the world that already exists.
The second rules language and tends to create a ‘new’ world, or at the very least, promotes ‘their’ world, in what I would call a ‘positive’ way.
As I lay here into my 3rd day straight after my operation I am seeing just how powerful that the noise, the sounds, the vibrations that come across your lips are.
The moment you talk in statement or opinion, that statement has life, has power, and maybe for some, ‘control’ over their lives.
A possible contemplation….
I was once told….
‘Be careful what you wish for…..’
Maybe every time you talk, that is a ‘wish’ coming true?
If that were the case, would you use your words more ‘wisely’?
