Tone. It is such a small word but it can have a big impact. The tone of our voice can drastically change the words we say. It can make a simple statement sound rude or angry. It can shift the course of our day, uplifting or bringing the storm. And it can have a powerful effect on those around us too, especially kids.
Tone. To get toned I need to get moving. I need to add more movement in my day to pull out of this slump. The interesting thing is when I am toning my body and getting that movement in, the tone of my voice is usually better too. Everything feels better when I feel better and moving makes me feel great!
I'm grateful for the word tone. I'm grateful to see how movement makes so many big changes. I'm grateful to be mindful of my tone with my children. I'm grateful to be making more effort to be mindful of my tone when speaking to anyone. I'm grateful to notice the tone inside my head as I speak to myself and see where a little more grace could be added. I'm grateful for a word to focus on this month as I move forward, clearing and growing.
