I decided to devote Monday's to exploring the meaning of words or sayings. Why you ask: because I believe that words matter. Monday's are usually an any topic goes kind of day.

They're stated verbatim or over stated and sometimes do more harm than good. Even worse if they are slapped on us like a wet band-aid without really understanding the meaning or without care. I'll be honest I am pretty sure that one of these has been me! I'm learning folks.
