DEEP words

“Simply by changing your habitual vocabulary, you can instantaneously change how you think, how you feel, and how you live.” ~ Tony Robbins

“People with an impoverished vocabulary live an impoverished emotional life; people with rich vocabularies have a multihued palette of colors with which to paint their experience, not only for others, but for themselves as well.” ~ Tony Robbins

“Few activities are as delightful as learning new vocabulary.” ~ Tim Gunn

Words that have deep meaning….create a space and an appetite for inspired words.
