I hear the pen is mightier than the sword. Based on real life examples, I believe this to be true. Politicians create law with the power to affect nations. Poems, stories, and songs have limitless reign over our hearts and minds. To the creator of these words comes great influence.
My mother used to say that we are what we eat. This is true for food, but this also includes the ideas we consume through books, movies, and even blogs. Since the very first time I set a pen to paper, I realized how influential words were. It is exciting to experience but even more fulfilling to know that ideas, created in the far corners of the mind, can help others find answers to problems and hope for the hopeless.
I realize, like Peter Parker (Spider-Man), that with great power comes great responsibility. For as long as I have the opportunity to share my thoughts and experiences with you, I will remain cognizant that these words can either build or destroy. Knowing me the way I do, I would much rather help build and encourage others than to destroy. So, I come to you this morning and thank you for reading. I am honored to know that you find value in these posts and, as a result, I will seek to bring my very best each and every day.
Ok, back to our regularly scheduled program. Until next time...
