When it comes to communication, what you say isn't always what you mean. And with language being an eternally evolving tool drawing on everything from personal experience to culture, trends, and straight innovation, the results are both inspiring and, well, dreary.

Let's face it - some of the most popular phrases in the English language either were overused to the point of complete misunderstanding or just weren't that great to begin with. And whether we admit it or not, we're all paying attention to who says what, and when.

The common words and phrases people use to express themselves can reveal a lot about who they are and how they see the world - and impact how the world sees them. Toss in a healthy dose of millennial ingenuity, and you'll find yourself with a whole collection of phrases that may or may not make you feel "hashtag blessed."
