Choose Your Words Wisely.
Last week I rambled over to Hilton Head Island for a week with my family.
Sun. Beaches. Ice cream. Nothing to do.
You know, the good stuff.
The part I haven’t mentioned yet is that the 22 of us that comprise the maternal side of my family spent that entire week in one house. I know, crazy right!?
But as I reflect back on lots of little moments that we had together, I was reminded of three little words that can really have a big impact on how the receiver of said word feels. And in turn, how the interaction and ultimately the relationship goes. It may come as some surprise to you right in this moment that none of these words have four letters or are part of the seven words you can’t say on TV.
