Thank You for Your Personal Stories of Courage on HubPages!
When Wondering How Much You Should Make "Hublic"...
I have been so blessed by many of the Hubs that I have been reading recently. They tell stories of personal challenges that have been overcome with great courage and what my grandmother might call, "gumption."
I adore reading, learning and being inspired!
We all have our stories to tell, and many of them are so powerful that they will actually change the world, in the short term, the world of fellow Hubbers.
With the effect of RIPPLE, these stories have the potential to help millions of people!
I have found that when I am inspired, I want to share these stories with others. I thank you - all of those willing to bare their souls in a way that leads others to greatness. For what is "greatness" anyway? Isn't it the ability to reach out and show love to others, to help in whatever capacity we've been blessed to help?
Writers get to do this.
Of course it's important not to use names that would embarrass others, or get us sued. I can think of some personal stories that could get me in big trouble. We must be wise about it.
I am so grateful for all of the wisdom I have absorbed by reading fellow Hubbers stories, poetry and articles over the first few weeks that I've been in the "Hubworld" community.
Personal Note: Thank you to my daughter Jasmine Christina, for coining the word "Hublic..." (It may have been used before somewhere, but her reference was the first I'd heard of it, and it made me giggle).
Effect of Ripple
Shared Experience Can Be Preventitive Medicine
We may never know how much or how many we help, but our words are still working their magic.
Your story could help someone make better decisions in life, hold on when they feel like giving up, or push through when they feel like crumbling under life's seemingly debilitating challenges.
I thank you and I salute you. My hat is off to you and my hands applaud you. I truly appreciate your willingness to allow us to look through the windows of your life, and learn from your experiences. What a gift you are giving.
Just Beginning My Education
Wisdom is Forever
I learned so much from my Grandma. She was taken from me (in physical form) when I was twelve. I have always been on the look-out for people like her, those who have lived through hardships in life, and yet have never grown cold and callous.
These are special people! People who can grow through heartache and pain, instead of visiting their misery on everyone around them, are more rare than you'd think. What treasures you are!
Life is a college. Sometimes I feel so bad for not having completed a college education. I think it limits me, and causes those who know this to look down on me as inferior.
That's okay. Life is my college, and I have many brilliant professors who don't even realize that they are my teachers. So thank you, and please don't charge me tuition. I may one day just surprise everyone and get my degree.
Some who have gone to a traditional college, graduate and think their education is over. That's one advantage to seeing life as a college. You never stop learning. You may not have letters following your name, but you also may know more than some who do.
Thank you for all you do for LOVE and for the love of writing. I'm learning from you and loving it, as I'm sure are many of your readers.
I Humbly Present to You the "Millie" Award
