I came across a quote today “Stop saying you are stuck at home. Start saying you are safe at home” and it reinforced the message that words really do have power in how we think, feel, and act. It made me think of phrases I am telling myself that aren’t helping me. Things like:
No one is hiring consultants right now
Higher education is being decimated
I can’t wait until I can have real food again.
Here are my substitute phrases:
People are hiring consultants - maybe not in the area you are in, but you can do the writing right now you’ve wanted to.
Higher education is going through some enormous change and with change brings opportunities .
I am getting to be creative with my cooking.
Are there any sentence changes you are making?
