GEN Y with GEMMA: Do share what you know to inspire others

WITHOUT so many people having touched my life in a variety of ways, I wouldn't be the girl I am today.

In fact, every little encounter, accident, blessing and curse has led me to this point.

It's often that I think of those currently in my life, those who starred in roles for short periods of time, those I thought I'd never have to say goodbye to and those who were for the best; all have made imprints on my soul.

The fact is I can't be writing these very words today if it wasn't for all of you.

My inspiration and material comes from sources everywhere, far and wide like the internet, which is so intense and massive I'm not even going to get into it.

Quotations from people, past and present.

Friends of mine who brighten my life every day. Family, whose words ring true, loud and sometimes right.

People I have met through my past experiences, jobs, schooling, activities and such.

People who I support with my work. The people I work with.

Everything I write comes from the bottom of my heart and that is what I offer you all every week to read. It gives me so much joy to know that these words are going out into the universe again, in a recycled way, from all of those who have touched my life and first gave me the knowledge to share again with you all.

Sharing what you know is something I believe strongly in. Share what you know and who you are.

A beautiful quote I stumbled upon many years ago states, "You may be the only Bible somebody reads". Such a statement could be analysed and dissected for hours, but to me it means we are examples in this life.

You'll never know who is listening to you, who thinks the world of you and values what you have to say.

I go through this life getting hurt a whole lot but loving so much too. It's a fragile but beautiful state where I can absorb the thoughts and feelings of my fellow Earth dwellers and that makes me smile, knowing I carry little pieces of those words within me now too and every week, I bring them to you all, sharing them once again.

For some things in this life are too beautiful to keep only for ourselves.
