I have received more than 200 comments, each of which was so heart-warming, encouraging, and inspiring. And my followers shot through the roof — from just about 200, it ballooned to almost 1,800! Every time I open my blog, I feel like I’m standing on a stage facing an audience of 1,800 people, and I’m having stage fright! I often don’t know what to say or write.
All of these for a mere poem?
Here’s what I have learned: That writing is not a trivial activity. That words, art, fiction, and poetry matter! They really do. You have no idea how your words will impact people, until you write them down and share them.
I will remember this the next time I will be tempted to think that what I’m doing is unimportant.
