Did you see my post on Instagram yesterday? I picked up this Hafiz quote on a Christmas ornament the other day and I’m reminding myself of it regularly. It will be prominently displayed somewhere in my new tiny home…

The words you speak become the house you live in.

This will work wildly in your favor or disasterously against you. It’s happening either way.

Fortunately, you get to choose. You are in control of which way it works in your life.

And, it’s not just your words. More than your words, it’s also your thoughts. 

If your thoughts & words are about what is wrong, what’s not fair, why you’re stressed, behind, not good enough, not thin enough, not fit enough, not wealthy enough – it is in your problems & your lack that you will build your life.

Your life will reflect lack and you will struggle to overcome challenges.

While those challenges might be very real, they certainly don’t have to be where you choose to focus.

You can choose to redirect your attention, thoughts and words to what is right.

Either way, where you choose to focus, the thoughts you think most often and the words you speak regularly will be what builds your life.

If your words & thoughts are about what is right, what is good, what you’re grateful for & the potential you have to create change in your life, your life will rise from gratitude & optimism.

Practice being part of the solution instead of part of the problem.

Practice focusing on what is right instead of on what is wrong.

Practice living from the perspective of what you can do instead of what you can’t do.

Afterall, the words you speak become the house you live in.
