As an author, when you tell your story or relate your feelings, or even report on an event, itísrepparttar way you present what you are writing and in essence, it is sharing yourself with others.

Whether you do write, or paint, or work in a factory, you are whatrepparttar 123905 world will see today. Go out onrepparttar 123906 limb. Donít let a single day go by that you donít give your world allrepparttar 123907 strength you can muster, andrepparttar 123908 ability to know that you are reaching for that fruit atrepparttar 123909 end of your limb. Maybe, and you may never really know, you helped someone start climbing their own tree and even reach that prize that at first seemed so far out of reach. Believe in yourself, reach out for new heights, and give onlyrepparttar 123910 best example of what a person can do withrepparttar 123911 life they are given. You will reach people, you will touch hearts, and you may just berepparttar 123912 one person that makes a difference to another between closing that prison door of self-imposed failure or opening a window and breathing inrepparttar 123913 fresh air.

Whatever you do in life is never self-contained. Every action is like a pebble that is thrown inrepparttar 123914 water. The ripples grow larger and larger. Your actions or attempts at livingrepparttar 123915 best life you can will have that same effect inrepparttar 123916 world. If you donít throw in your stone, then that ripple may not reachrepparttar 123917 one person where only you can make a difference. Donít let this tragedy happen. Give of yourself to whatever you undertake so that others may grow. Your own harvest will just be that much sweeter. ©Arleen M. Kaptur 2002 May
