Whenever someone sends me a DM, or Facebook message telling me that something I wrote or shared inspired or uplifted, I save it. I screenshot it and I keep it in a folder on my phone to reread when I feel like going into hiding ️, that no one cares what I share.
In a time where everyone is screaming to be heard on social media and an engagement-focused algorithm update...it feels like the message we speak is being drowned out, lost in the screaming match....pointless. 🗣 🤷🏼♀️
But here’s the thing: people are watching. People do listen. It may be a few or it may be more. They may be quiet about it, but no matter your engagement, your followers, or readers - you DO have influence. You do inspire., you do bring something to others. Your mere presence does.
As writers, artists, speakers, bloggers and creatives, it is our job to show up. Just a little step to move the needle forward.
Nothing amazing happens from “luck” or timing or “hustle” 🤮 🤮 🤮 . It happens when you take a single small step....every day. One small step slowly but surely will lead to something. You don’t need a long and busy daily to-do list or an ambitious goal (in fact, chuck “ambition” out the windooooow) Take a single step. And then make it a daily habit.
In this moment, it may seem hard, impossible even. But years from now, when you look back at this pivotal time, you will be grateful you took that single step.
