This is Marie T. Russell, co-publisher of, wishing you a day of choosing your words carefully (today and every day)

Comment from Marie:
Words definitely have power. And the more we are aware of the words we use, the more we can steer the direction of our life. I am particularly cautious with the words 'always' and 'never', as they are a "life-sentence" in a world of self-fulfilling prophecies.

Our focus for today: By consciously choosing my words, I unlock my superpower.
