Magic Words

I wish that magic words existed. The idea of incantations that could physically change the world around you is amazing.

Alas, the sad reality is that there are no magic words. Never is it more clear than when I console people in times of grief. Nothing cures a broken heart or a crushed spirit. When people have fallen into low places, only they can get themselves out. It takes time and it takes conscious effort to make their life better again.

Whenever people are upset, I wish there were magic words I could say that would make all the pain go away. There aren't magic words. But there are words. And sometimes, the most innocuous words strike you. They resonate within you. They move you to do the things you would never have done without them.

There are no magic words, but all words can be magical.
