Making things happen

If a person cares, you will see it in their actions. Talk is cheap, and people indulge in it far too readily. Actions are all that is important, and will tell what words cannot.

Is it better to talk about helping, or do something about it? One is passive and the other is active. Almost as if they believe making funny sounds come from their lips can do anything.

You can tell more about a person by what they do, than what they say. Words are a means to communicate. But without action, there is no substance to what is said.

People often say one thing and do another. Only that which is demonstrated is so. What is intended means nothing, until you take the unreal and give it form.

It is possible to make things happen, if you do more than you say. What is told should be the recounting of what is done. Otherwise it is just air between the ears.

We live in a world where words are the weapon of choice. But winning such a battle is a hollow victory. In the end, you have nothing to show but hot air freely expended.

  1. That is a wonderful sentiment when you consider that most of what I say is gibberish. I am glad I stay busy doing nice things.
