Why Words Matter

Words definitely MATTER! Next week is National Anti-Bullying week…try to convince ME that words do not matter! This blog, Herding Cats is actually the blog that motivated me to start my blog…I moved away from CherShares to talk about Stigma…yep, that would mean labels…that would mean WORDS that hurt, that undermine, that DO MATTER. Read this blog, Herding Cats. She writes from the heart and is an amazing writer! Cheryl-Lynn



A little bit about moi: I am a mom, a nana, a sister, a woman, a friend, a human being…a youth counsellor, Family Life Educator. I have been working in the helping profession for over 25 years and volunteered in various capacities from youths to seniors. Tournesol is my nom de plume for haiku and other Japanese form poetry here at Tournesoldansunjardin I hope you enjoy reading through my daily waka. I also have another blog "Stop the Stigma" where I may stand on my soapbox now and then and hope it will become a place to drop in and share or comment on issues important to you. In that vein this could be a great way to learn from each other. Namaste!

    1. Aw, you are too kind! I am sharing the words of the very first person whom I followed and inspired me to start this blog. Isn`t it interesting that Shining and Stigma both start with “S”? Hope you are doing well. Winters must be more challenging for you. Blessings
