Many friends who had accessed my blog told me that I wrote very well, my English is excellent, I can express so well and all the powerful remarks. I certainly love every bit of the accolades and praise. Thank you, guys and gals!!
What I always say in return is this : "YOU can do it too."
Why most of my friends are not building their blogs (or some have started putting some pages up but not sharing, why? why keep the blog to yourself??), these are the few reasons I often heard :
- the words I use - are they politically correct or not?
- whether or not my grammar is good,
- my English may not be good enough....
- don't know who will read my blog
- will anyone read or not?
- I am not good enough
- I want to make sure no mistake than I publish
- don't know what to write, nothing to share
- no stories to tell.......
Let me share with you this, I don't hold a degree in story-writing, neither was JK Rowling.
I don't have a master degree in English Language, neither was Eckhart Tolle.
I am not trying to outsmart or be in any one's shoes, neither was Picasso.
I am just being myself, writing about subjects I knew straight from my heart, telling you as it is.
Because I believe that only YOU can be YOU.
What you share is going to inspire a million people. Think about it, if you are married, at least you had inspired that one girl to be your wife or that one boy to be your husband. Truly, there are at least one million people around YOUR world who is waiting to fall into your arms, and so lucky she got you and you got him. See??
So, who reads what, is not within my control.
What I can control is only my Thoughts!! not yours, not hers, not his either.
Put it this way - "if Picasso had only painted like Van Gogh, he would not have towered the artistic genius of our times." I don't know where I got this statement but I used it before.
So, you are the Picasso, because the brush (keyboard) is in your hands.
Just do it, because your story will touch someone somewhere sometime, where you least expect it. (sounds like a TV docu-series, which one?)
To all my friends who had started blogging, treat it like writing your journal. Spam and let everyone see you shine. You never know what lies in front, it may be a singing contract? a wedding ring? a project? But one thing I am so sure, You will definitely find joy in writing.
How do I know?
I just did!
