Yes, we won!

Rachael was right, beloved sisters... we are all winners!

I won a lot of friends, soul-mates and amazing realizations ... and I'm still winning now as I write! I won over my fears, bitterness, resentments and disillusionment as I go through the lives of other sisters. Their testimonies here at World Pulse are so real it opened me to worlds I have never been to, to the humanity I have never seen ... This amazing community is my most valuable prize after a month-long outpouring of my being and becoming ... WP is a trophy in my heart!

Sisters, we found each other here ... and we had a grand exchange of gifts - the gift of our beings, in the past weeks that we have shared so much of who we are. It is only fitting that we stay together, as what sister Natasha suggested - in making a pledge of togetherness - for as long as we can here at World Pulse. We will get going... with the bonding that we have created, if only to exist as an oasis to the rest of our sisters who are still stranded in the desert of voicelessness and have yet to know that we are here ... and as our very precious legacy to the next generation of sisters! All the best for us!

Always, Emie Zozobrado

Hi Emie, very nicely stated!

I was in that desert myself, Noreen... for quite so long! It's lonely and terrifying to be alone in the wilderness of a society that has reduced you to be a guinea pig. But, of course, it's lack of choices that makes you durable... it's lack of chances that make you spontaneous ...

Yes, sister Warona ... a bonding legacy of all time! Isn't it great to belong to one another, from today onwards...? It's like we're really meant to meet this way and pave the way for the rest .... so fulfilling and gratifying!

You are a real soul sister Emie. Your energy is transmitted through time zones and across continents. Yes, we have made soulmates and friendships that are beyond words. I have learnt so much more than I could ever have done by myself through you and everyone else who has graced me with their words and thoughts.

Sister Fu! We are soulmates and it's exhilarating! We have learned so much from each other and lived so much in each other's sensitivities and sensibilities in so short a time - despite distance and absence (physical, of course). I would always go back to our exchanges with tears and laughter, as I relive the moments when I echo the sentiments of our sisters which are as real as mine, in my own testimonies and confessions. I will always be here - reading and re-reading the lives of my sisters while writing and re-writing my own life. I have been touched, convinced, humbled and flattered ... but most of all, I belong!

Always, Emie Zozobrado

Hi Milly! Nice of you to drop by! Yes, of course ... at some points in our lives, we all go through deserts and wildernesses ... and it's good to share it with sisters who know how it is to be there, and those who are still there and find it difficult to get going. The worst state in pain is when there is no one to share it with. Right here at WP we have each other....

Always, Emie Zozobrado

Dear Emie,,

As I have always said,that if not for Pulse Wire we'll not have the chance to know each other even we are in the same country.With the four weeks of our interaction via on-line,its really worth it because the quality of learning I've got amongst our co-applicants is immeasurable and I treasure it as I go along with our journey for change.Let's continue communicating to everyone to whom we get our inspiration and courage.

Cheers to you all.

Hi Adel! You're right! So many beautiful things happened to each one of us here that it's too sad to let go of each other now ... we will prevail at WP...

HI Emie,

I agree that all the participants won - in one way or another - in the last one month. I was encouraged by the comments I got from some of us. I was more particularly touched when Suzanna probed more of my Week 3 assignment. As I wrote back to her, I got emotional. I remembered what Stephen Covey - the author of 7 Habits of Highly Effective People said: we should be grateful to those that rekindle our voices. Suzanna did and I got to love WP more.

Yes! Let's keep the fire burning.

See you guys.

Moza.

That's right, Moza ... we have reinforced each other's courage to hold on and get going and bonded ourselves in just 4 weeks! I will be right here, sisters! See more of each other right here at WP...
