Words, Words, Words

I love words.  I am a collector of words.  One word, two words, many words ... words.  I have notebooks filled with words.  Pieces of paper in a basket full of words & sayings.  Some of things I've picked up randomly, some I've heard people speak and then there are those that have been immortalized by wise individuals. 

I enjoy Yogi tea.  Probably what I enjoy best about the tea, other then the flavor, is the tea bag label.  Words.  I have a mason jar that I toss the words into.  Sometimes before a yoga practice I'll draw out a label and meditate on the words.  If I'm stuck and I feel the need to journal, usually a draw of a word or saying from one of my baskets, jars or notebooks jog my mind and the words will flow. 

I just pulled these words out of my desk drawer (my teabag label stash)
Your life is based on the capacity of energy in you, not outside of you.

What are some words in your life that you hold on to?
