Did you ever get the feeling that you have nothing to say?
I don't mean just temporary moments of being uninspired. I mean wondering if you have ANYTHING AT ALL to say.
Do my words mean anything to anyone?
Is my story worth sharing with anyone?
Compared to all the other great storytellers out there on the blogosphere, my writing is crap! How can I compete.
Then I remember that old Emily Dickinson poem:
"If I can stop one heart from breaking,
I shall not live in vain;
If I can ease one life the aching,
Or cool one pain,
Or help one fainting robin
Unto his nest again,
I shall not live in vain."
So maybe I don't need a thousand readers, or a hundred blog hits a day. Maybe all I need is just one person to say, "Wow, I know EXACTLY what you mean! Thank you so much for sharing your story."
What do you think? Is it enough to stop one heart from breaking?
