Everything has a beginning

Everything we do in life has some sort of a beginning.

Every year, we start with the month, of January. We pace through every month and in no time at all we are back to the beginning. We all know we have to start somewhere.

Most writers will tell you they started with a blank piece of paper.

In school, perhaps a teacher laid a piece of paper on your desk and said to the class, “write whatever comes to your mind. Try to be creative.”

In the beginning you stared at the blank piece of paper. Nothing came into your mind. All you saw was a blank sheet of paper with holes on the side.

Your mind rushed and many ideas jumbled together, leaving you in frustration.

It’s hard to separate all the many things you want to express. You realize that the onset of writing was more then you expected.

Little by little your thoughts, ideas, and creativity come into focus.

You realize writing takes on a different perspective. It takes thinking, determination, and a positive attitude.

Most importantly, it takes courage to write. This is called the muscular part of writing.

In time, the pen in your hand and the words written on your paper will flow through you.

Anything that has a real and lasting value is always a gift from within. God has sealed each and everyone of us with a touch of his goodness.

In today’s world the respect and empathy for another human being is starting to tarnish. Some people have no sense of who other people are. There’s a kind of withering away of human sensibility, and this leads to the collapse of our society as a whole.

However, there are people who find that ray of hope and extend it to others in our world and find solutions everyday.

Our conclusion is that whenever two or more people come together in the spirit of harmony it’s like putting lightning in a bottle. We laugh. We become excited. Life feels joyous; without drudgery.

When this happens, a difference can be made in the lives of so many people throughout our world.

Amazing things happen when people come together for the same purpose or intent. There is a pull inside each and everyone of us to make a difference while we are here.

It’s up to us to make our time and choices matter.
