There is power in positive thinking.
There is power in knowing when to speak and knowing when to be silent.
There is power in choosing our words wisely.
There is power in using our words for good and not evil.

“Handle them carefully, for words have more power than atom bombs” -Pearl Strachan
When life gets uncontrollable and nothing is in your hands, words can make everything feasible. We actually don’t need something very philosophical to comfort us. A simple “Everything will be fine” or “Don’t worry, I’ll be there for you” is even enough to overcome any worst situation. When a person suffers from a life-threatening illness and doctors can do absolutely nothing, words may enhance the person’s willpower. Giving what we call as positive talk can definitely boost up the person’s endurance, positivity and most important strength. We have numerous live examples who fought the most fatal condition, Cancer. Out of them is one of the greatest Indian cricketer, Mr. Yuvraj Singh. Actually, my life is surrounded with many people who conquered their illnesses and continuing, solely because of words. My father fought stomach ulcer with the help…

My trip had been grueling. A seventeen hour flight followed by a nearly hour-long cab ride thanks to the heavy traffic. All the weekend beach goers making their way home on a Sunday evening. I was tired but relieved. John would be so surprised. We expected to be celebrating our anniversary on two different continents, via a Skype connection.
However, I’d worked through the weekend and most of the evenings during my trip. After all, what would an American woman on her own do in an industrial city in China for fun? My choices were nil. I ordered room service each night and kept at my laptop until it was time to go to bed. Happily, I’d managed to finish up my project a full three days early and exchange my return ticket at minimal cost.
The lights were on in the living room when the cab pulled up in front of my home. John’s car was in the driveway. I paid the cabdriver and hauled my bags to the door. As I let myself in, I wondered whether John had eaten dinner yet; if maybe he’d want to get takeout. I could go for Mexican food. Or maybe a pizza… Granted, he would still owe me a romantic dinner when I got over my jet lag.
The house was quiet and John wasn’t in the living room. I was just about to yell out to him when I saw the wine bottle and the lipstick stain on the glass. My heart squeezed in my chest. I left my luggage in the foyer and walked to the back of the house. No one was in the kitchen either. I stood still and listened. Although the house was quiet, it didn’t feel empty. From the second floor came the quiet murmurings of a conversation.
Perhaps my exhaustion was making me emotional, I thought, but dread began to wash over me in a wave. This could not be happening. Not today. Not on my twenty-fifth wedding anniversary.
I returned to the foyer and slowly…

Sometimes the emotions inside just need to come out. Sometimes writing is the only way to make peace of the things we feel but don’t understand. Sometimes pulling the chaos out of our head is the only way to give it some order and meaning.
