I have been sitting back thinking about this blog and how it has had such a positive impact on me, this has been such a wonderful experience. This is truly my daily journal; I just write whatever thoughts are in my head at the time. I do no planning, no editing; I just write from my heart whatever is there at the moment. I don’t edit or proof read, I do use spell checker (As I just write from my heart I have found my heart isn’t that good a speller).

I do just share my thoughts and feelings of the moment, it is all so easy, just sit and type. I am not sure how to really describe this but it seems as I type the thoughts and feelings, they seem to become even more entrenched or possibly strengthened in my mind. It really is a big help in dealing with some of my issues.

I gain so much by just writing and yet gain even more support through the literally thousands of kind wonderful comments I have received from all over the world. I am such a lucky man. I so thank all who take the time to leave a comment.

It has been said many times that I just do not understand or appreciate the affect my words have on others. Well that is obviously true as I just frankly don’t get it. I am certainly no one special, just an ordinary guy sharing his thoughts. I so often question, how can anything I have to say really have any meaning to people I don’t even know? Well, as hard as it is to believe that is what seems to be happening at least in some cases. I have received messages telling of the profound affect my words have had on some. Talk about a win/win situation. I can’t begin to really explain how much I have personally gained through this whole experience and then to hear my simple writings are have a positive impact on the lives of others, is the icing on the cake.

The comments I receive make me realize the power of simple words, even words from a stranger such as myself. My words seem to be reaching out to people all over the world in I hope a positive manner. I have been fumbling and bumbling with this paragraph for a while trying to find the correct wording. I am not a writer merely a rambler, I start typing and whatever comes, comes. I struggle now as I am trying to actually say something in particular. I feel very humbled and somehow unworthy of all the comments coming my way. I am trying to find the words in which it is clear I am not trying to brag or boast of the comments. Hey, I know what is in my heart, so I am just going to write it, this is my journal after all.

First off I am going to copy a comment left for my by Sara Siraj. Now I have no idea who Sara is or even where she is. She left me this comment which touched my heart very deeply:

“I want to thank you for helping me want to go on living. Your words, on this site, have done more for me than anyone. From your words I have been given hope, encouragement, and love. I had forgotten that there were loving people in the world, but more than anything I had forgotten I was one of them. Thank you for giving me back my life. You will always be one of my hero’s and always in my prayers.”

It makes me realize that if I can reach out and touch the lives of others, so can we all. Sharing positive thoughts and feelings can’t help but make the world a better place. I have written often of the ripple effect that can result from a single act of kindness or even a simple smile. Words no matter how simple can have such an amazing affect be it good or bad. A few words can bring about change in the lives of others. If we all can stop and realize this, think of the wonderful things that can be done in this world.

I think if I can bring about change in others just through words as it seems I am. So can everyone else, I have no special qualifications to do anything. I challenge any and all that may read this. Please start spreading loving supportive, re-enforcing, encouraging, positive message to all. The ripple effect can be amazing, who know how far your message will teach and spread. Each of us can bring about positive change to this world. Let’s do it.

    We each can be the change we want to see.
    It starts with each of us, eh?

  9. Sameer Khan says:

    Ya know, we don’t often get to know how we affect those around us for the good–but boy do we tend to keep track of how we’ve affected them for the not so good.

  10. Catherine says:

    I’m thinkin’ we each need a list on our refridgerators of good things we did during the course of the day….leastwise I can think of one person who could use that list!
    (me, of course….LOL…..it’s always about mememe……LOL)

    *HUGE hugs your way!*

  11. Jameel Isphani says:

    I think that is an excellent idea, writing down the good that we do. It is so easy to forget while the negative we remember forever it seems.

    I don’t agree with you miqdad.Its a natural thing not to support a particular country or even an individual. There is no harm in it.Sometimes yes it is true we don’t want a particular to win and thats pretty okay…We are humans.We cannot assume ourselves to be perfect.If we have grudges against someone even then its our right (as long as we justify it well) and sometimes we don’t even have justifications.You just hate them ! (I hope I got the idea right)

  13. Anum Faheem says:

    Sorry honey i gave the wrong comment on the wrong post :$ the earlier comment was for the proud citizens so….yes words do have a great impact.the experince at times is so humbling and sometimes it the other way round too-one gets arrogrant.So one should always pray that God should not take away this gesture from us(amen)the humble one i mean.You know when you are honest and pure then nothing can harm you so just remain that way.God bless you !
