My entry for IllustrationFriday.com’s theme, “Voice”
I’ve been reading a book called “The Four Agreements” by Don Miguel Ruiz, and it’s a quick read if you’re looking for a code of conduct to help transform your life. In it, the first agreement states that you should be impeccable with your word.
"The word is the most powerful tool you have as a human, it is a tool of magic. But like a sword with two edges, your word can create the most beautiful dream, or your word can destroy everything around you."
As stated by the book, our voice has the ability to carry so much weight. In my piece I wanted to show how our voice has the ability to create conflict. Whether you are in attack mode or in a state of defense, be careful of the things you say. You may not see the repercussions of the moment, but with a little foresight, you can save yourself from digging a deeper hole.
