The Wonder of Emotion

Some words hold more weight than we ever intended them to hold.

The words that the rest of the world see at face value, can hold such a deep connection to the individual person. Sometimes it’s in the name of the local grocery store down the road. Other times it’s the title of a song your mom played in the car before she dropped you off at school, the name of your childhood best friend, or the name of that one person. You know who I’m talking about. The one whose shoulder you cried on. The one who called to ask how your day was and you both end up belly laughing within 2 minutes. The one who you could spend hours with, not saying a single word, and feel like you poured out your heart for hours and was perfectly understood.

The words like that can bring you the most beautiful feelings and memories. If you don’t think you have words like that, think harder. I promise you do. We all do.

Benjamin Franklin once said "Either write something worth reading or do something worth writing."

I'd like to do both.
