Words have power. They reaffirm, question, challenge, praise. They carry the weight of all of our preconceived notions in the outlines of their individual letters and the spaces between are ripe with intention. This time of year is a perfect reminder to stay conscious of the weight of our words and the power they carry within. Let’s create an abundance of positive energy in our environment’s this season. Let’s collect beauty and display it. Let’s honor the words we love.
