Friday Frills

This poem reminds me that when we least expect it, someone somewhere may be inspired by something we do or say. It could be your comments, your views, your values or your kind actions. And although it may seem simple or insignificant to you - you never know; to someone else, it may mean the world and influence their lives for the better. We each have the ability to make a positive difference in someone's life...sometimes without knowing it at all.

You never know when someone
May catch a dream from you.
You never know when a little word,
Or something you may do
May open up the window
Of an inquiring mind that seeks wisdom & light.
The way you live may not matter at all,
But, then again you never might.
And just in case it could be that
Another’s life through you,
Might possibly change for the better,
With a broader and brighter view.
It seems it might be worth a try
At pointing out the way to the right.
Of course, it may not matter at all,
But then might.
  So keep on doing whatever it is you do,  
You may inspire one soul or perhaps even a few.

Hi Sam! Thats why I love to read your friday frills, since they inspire me for the day:) I didnt know this poem, is so positive and optimistic and I read also in this way: to not give up: what we are doing or try to achieve could be hard, at the first we didnt notice any development but it just could be a change in someone's life:) I can apply the same way to think also for blogging, many times we can be without motivation or inspiration but maybe someone find it on what we share:) Kisses dear and have a great friday!♥
