Today, I was reminded again that the words I say are within my control, but the words people remember are out of my control.

Every time someone tells me about the words I said that made an impact on them, I struggle to remember. Many people are surprised I do not remember.

This realisation has made me very deliberate with my words, as my brain does not have the capacity to remember all that my tongue tells.

Words shape lives in ways that are out of our control. Use them with care.

I am thankful for feedback on ways in which my words shape worlds. I am consciously shaping a world of inclusive possibilities.
