How To Spice Up Your Life Verbally


People in the world talk a lot and use many words to describe or explain whatever they are doing or thinking. Now I have a question for all the readers, how many of you actively use adjectives or new descriptive words whenever you speak? How many use the same adjectives all the time such as nice, cool, pretty, and okay? In this post I’m telling you to get rid of those generic adjectives and get some “Spice” for your mouth.

The more you take things as an opinion, the better the understanding and doing. The more you take it as a statement the worse you make yourself look. Your acceptance to the statements and not opinions proves that you agree with the world and not oneself. I give an opinion because i feel strong for that matter, you take it as a statement because you too believe in the same.

Why are we juxtaposing two different terms for the sake of one ego?
