Have you ever heard the phrase “Go ahead, make my day!”



Well, today, let’s take that infamous phrase to a whole new level.


Remembering everything that we’ve shared about the Power of Words, make a conscious attempt today to make someone’s day and watch the atmosphere change. It is pretty powerful.

As you meander through your day, smile at someone, hold a door, comment on the weather, their clothes, their hair, your understanding of their frustration. Simply acknowledge the person exists in a friendly, understanding way and – believe me – you will make a positive change in their atmosphere and in yours.

And pleeeze – drop back in here and share your responses.


Word Games . . . like Scrabble, crossword puzzles and word searches are challenging, fun and enriching.

Word Games . . . like lies, appeasing comments and outright deception are frightening, dangerous and damaging.

Words . . .

They leave a mark, a bruise, an impression . . .

They can make us, they can break us . . .

They can be enriching, they can be damaging . . .


Hopefully by now we are coming to a clear understanding of the Power of WordsΒ  and take caution in their use.Β  So . . .

Let’s Play a Word Game – a healthy, three word Word Game to emphasize

the Power of Words


I Love You . . . will elate us

I Hate You (or even I dislike you) . . . will deflate us


The Word Game:

Write down as many three word phrases as you can think of that elate and then write down as many three word phrase as you can think of that deflate.

Then just look at them and see if you don’t feel their energy – you may have even felt it when you wrote them down.

Then just for a minute think about how you would feel if you were the recipient of those three little words.

Hopefully this will help you understand the power of words, spoken, written, read – and will help you choose yours with utter care because . . .

Words are Powerful – Word Games are Fun !

Choose and Play with Care because . . .

you cannot take them back.



What would life be if there were no challenges in our day? There’d be nothing to get us motivated other than our inner anxieties !

I love challenge – especially a good one.

But you also should enjoy your challenge to some extent to get the most out of it. And that’s what I’m hoping to do with a new post-a-day-2011 challenge that WordPress is challenging all its bloggers to participate in.

How hard can posting a day be on a daily dose of inspiration blog? I should be able to meet that hands down, right? We’ll see.

So here’s the real deal. I’ve entered into the Post-A-Day-2011 Challenge. But my real challenge will be posting on Sundays because admittedly, I wasn’t planning on posting on Sundays, even on a daily blog.

I mean, it’s Sunday. I love Sundays. Raining on Sunday, snowing on Sunday, sunny on Sunday. I love Sundays. I love sleeping late, getting lost in pillows, reading, writing, playing my guitar and just enjoying a down day.

I don’t work on Sundays – or I don’t like to. But writing’s not really work to me. It’s what I love to do.

So, to meet this WordPress challenge, I’ll post on Sundays ! Now, I know it’s Sunday but don’t expect miracles. It’s my personal day.

And let’s have some real fun with this challenge. I invite you to join me. I’ve got a challenge for you.

Share Brain Brew Blog with one person a day ! Sound daunting? It’s not really. Think about it.

Write on a bunch of index cards. Tack one to the bulletin board at the church, the grocery store, the library, schools, the laundromat.

Tell the person behind you in the grocery line how awesome Brain Brew Blog is. Talk about me at the train station, the lunchroom. Just share Brain Brew Blog with one person a day.

Let’s Double the Fun ! Return here to the The Fun in Life’s Little Challenges post and register. Share with me, other bloggers and other thinkers what the response has been from people you’ve shared Brain Brew Blog with. Who knows, you might make new friends, business contacts, meet the love of your life. Anything can happen when you’re out having a good time.

Together We Can Do This . . .

I’ll post a day in 2011 – even on Sundays !

Will you Share Brain Brew Blog daily with someone in 2011.
