Speaking Loudly

“Actions speak louder than words.” -Aisling

What an understatement. Simple and true.¬† It’s unbelievable how the most simple things seem to be the most profound.


The thing that baffles me sometimes is that we want to talk the talk..actually…we want to do A LOT of talking. But we never want to walk the walk. We want to tell everyone what our goals in life are, about this great idea we have, how unhappy we are about something, what someone else needs to do to make something better, etc. To be honest, I don’t really want to hear about it unless I know that something is happening behind the scenes to make the statement come to life. It’s as if you’re screaming at the top of your lungs getting someone to listen to you. They probably will the first time, but once they see you have no substance to reinforce your point you lose.

I believe words have life to it. It has a past, present, and future. It has expression, action, feeling, and substance. Things that you say to people, reflect the things you do to people. At least, they should. If you’re positive with your words, you will have a positive effect. If you’re negative with your words, you will have a negative effect. Just as words have life, so do actions. It takes a living being to portray those actions, both positive and negative.

What do you surround yourself with? What vibe do you give off to others? Negativity or positivity?And what do you do with it? Do you do nothing? Or do you actually take it and make something happen?

Maybe it’s just me, but the ones that speak loudly might as well stay quiet unless they’ve got actions to back it up.
