Whether listening to the low muted murmur of a confidential whisper or the proud boom coming from a mic on the podium, there are few sounds more expressive than the human voice. Each persons voice has a unique tone that is all its own, carrying their own signature traits and characteristics. No two voices are alike.
The tenderness of a lover's voice can feel like a warm
caress; words spoken in anger can seem like physical blows; and a voice
tinged with laughter can't help but fill us with good feelings. And
then there are the voices of other people we encounter...the radio
announcer's soothing baritone on a long car ride or the cheerful chatter
of children playing on the street are just a few of the voices we may
be blessed to hear on any given day.
Every time we use our
voices, we make an impression on the people around us. Like the words we
use when we speak, our voices can communicate what we are feeling, what
we desire and what we really mean. Timidity, desire, pain and love can
all be expressed and felt through the human voice. Our voices also have
the power to heal, to hurt, to love and to transform others. When we are
aware of the impact our voices can have, we can choose what we are
expressing. Remember that what you communicate when you speak goes
beyond words. Take responsibility for the power your voice has to impact
the people around you and let your voice be a sound that creates
harmony and compassion in your world.
