Last night I received an instant message on facebook from an old friend. This friend of mine I have not seen or heard from in at least 5 years. We talked for a while sharing old stories and reminiscing of the good times. As my friend was updating me on his life and what struggles he was facing in his current situation I realized the negative pool of energy he was drowning himself in, at that point I attempted to uplift his spirit and try to adjust his mindset to be more positive. As we continued to talk about his situation he started to think a bit less negative and this is when he made a comment that I will never forget “Devon I think your website is going to change my life honestly”. It was at this point I realized my words had the power and ability to stimulate another human being to make a change in their life for the better. At the conclusion of our conversation he later said “I’m telling you believe me people are reading and I know it, people love to hear positivity in the negative world we live in”.
In this fast paced world we live in we sometimes do or say things and not realize the impact it may have on people. In this case I wrote quotes that are motivational and inspirational in hope to give others the positive support in which they need in order to create change. I can honestly say I don’t know how my friends and I words impact people nor do I know who reads what my friends and I post on our site. This goes to show people listen and people watch and you never know when they are doing either so it best to practice what you preach and be consistent.
Old friend you know who you are, I am sure you will make the right decision and not to say things will not be hard or you won’t struggle but trust and believe all will be well.
