Wasting words

Sometimes I think we waste our words. 

And sometimes I think we waste our moments and sometimes we don't take the time, the chance or the opportunity to say the things that are in our hearts when we have the chance.

I took some opportunities in the past few days to try to not waste moments or opportunities. 

After lots of deliberation, after lots of "should I?" or "shouldn't I?"

I did.  

I have.

The words may be wasted, it may be that they don't mean anything at all to who they've been shared with, they may be wasted in that they may be ignored, but the opportunity wasn't wasted. I didn't waste the moment.

While I can hope that the words aren't wasted, it will be as it will be.

It is as it is.

It is only something time will tell and it's now out of my hands.

I'm determined not to waste words, not to waste moments, but more so I'm determined to give the time, my time to things, to situations, but more so (and especially so) to people that matter to me, and to say the words that are in my heart.


  1. Thank you for sharing, Kat.

    It is good to see these words. I have held back over the years out of fear of hurt... but have learned that any hurt I may feel is small compared to the potential of what they could do, what they could mean, and how powerful they could be.

    I believe it's better to regret saying something than regret not saying something that you wanted to. At least for one of them the outcome is known... the other just leaves us stuck in a state of unknown.

    Take care.

  2. Dear Kat, I agree with what fur has said above, it is better to regret having done something that to sit with the "what if I had . . .?!"

    And if you do not get a response from the effort you've made, if someone doesn't have the common decency and courtesy to respond, to acknowledge then that says more about them than it does you and you can walk away with dignity and self respect.

    Yours, as always, A x
