This was done in the time it took me to brush my teeth.
These days, I keep accidently referring to Ruby as "wild woman" and I've got to stop!
You see, I believe that words are seeds. You reap what you sow. You plant a carrot seed, you're going to get a carrot. You plant an apple seed, you're going to get an apple tree. You plant a positive word, you're going to reap something positive. You sow a word of "you are wild" you're going to get wildness.
This revelation is quite grand once you grasp it. Everything you say has power behind it, whether you realize it or not. What you say can make or break a situation. Can you think of a time where someone has said something, even in passing, that meant the world to you? And another situation where someone said something that broke your heart and tore you down? It's more than just words. It's the spirit behind the words. When we gripe and complain, we are empowering a negative spirit that just breeds more negativity. And when we choose beautiful, positive words, we empower the Holy Spirit to work on our behalf.
You won't hear me say the common phrases people say all the time like "I'm going crazy" or "that kills me" or even "I'm so dumb" or "I'm a retard", because I don't want to be any of those things! Sure, there is the argument "well I don't really mean that". Then why say it?
So, I don't want my little Ruby girl to be wild when she grows up. I want her to be free spirited, comfortable in her own skin, confident in who she is, submitted to her parents and have our heart, and to be strong and bold with a gentleness about her. And preferably funny.
Just not wild:)
