My encouragement, my confidence.

There are many groups that one can join globally but sometimes it is important to sit down and do a self evaluation of the impact the groups have helped you to make.  What matters when one day we leave this planet is not how well we lived but the impact we made in other people's lives. The footprints we leave will lead others to continue with what we started, if it is for a worthy course. I believe It is because of the impact which  heroes like Mother Teresa made, that has encouraged others to continue with the same spirit.

I joined World pulse and was greatly impressed to see what the ladies here were doing. These ladies are committed to selflessly share what they have with others, not because they are wealthy but because they want to make a difference. I read so many stories here and felt in my heart that I too could start somewhere with what I had. 

I saw a need in a public hospital near where I live and decided to start from there. I then talked to a few of my friends to support me in this worthy course and was able to deliver babies diapers and sanitary towels to the mothers in the newborn unit of that particular hospital. That was my first charity work because of the encouragement I received from World pulse and I have continued to date with the same spirit.

I like the counsel of Mother Teresa's mother, Drana Bojaxhiu to her daughter. Although by no means wealthy, Drana Bojaxhiu extended an open invitation to the city's destitute to dine with her family. "My child, never eat a single mouthful unless you are sharing it with others,"  When Mother Teresa (Agnes)  asked who the people eating with them were, her mother responded, "Some of them are our relations, but all of them are our people.". I believe it is because of such counsel that Mother Teresa continued with her commitment to charity work.

It is here at WorldPulse that I got encouragement from sisters to continue writing stories.  I realized that when I wrote and  posted a story, someone got encouraged in a way, just as other sisters' stories of what they are doing in their respective communities encouraged me to start doing something in my community/ country. The more I write the more my writing skills improve. Thanks to World pulse!

I  also attribute my confidence to my joining World pulse. I have seen ladies here raising their voices to positively impact  their communities and since I became a member of this great platform, my confidence has been built. I can never keep silent when, by raising my voice I may bring some change to my community / country. World pulse; my encouragement, my confidence!

Hello, my beloved sister Milly,

What a lovely tribute this is for World Pulse and the whole Community!

This resonated with me, "What matters when one day we leave this planet is not how well we lived but the impact we made in other people's lives." I believe the same, dear.

I have so much respect for Mother Theresa and the legacy of her acts of love. Thank you for sharing that anecdote about her.

You write so well, dear, and you bring into your writing the lens from the grassroots community to a global space. Please don't lose that voice.

Speaking of voice, I hope you continue to sing because that is also a gift you can share with the world. Hugs!

Hello Milly,
What a great description of so many of the ways that World Pulse impacts our lives and brings hope, inspiration and support. I loved knowing more about Mother Teresa and what she learned from her mother. I love the depth you bring, that when we choose to devote our lives to good change "The footprints we leave will lead others to continue with what we started, if it is for a worthy course". An extra gift that we are all able to be inspired and supported by each other here.

Dear Millynairi,

Reading your story is so gladdening. It made me so happy to know that young girls are picking up the baton sooner than we did.
This is a truly good and welcome development, and I am so proud of you.
As you rightly said, you will never not do anything nor keep silent. That's just the spirit Girl.
Keep doing something no matter how little, keep writing and keep talking.
We got you xxx.

In love and sisterhood,
Hawwah

Hello MILLYNAIRI,
Yes what a wonderful humanitarian contribution to donate your time and effort to a Hospital serving women babies and delivering supplies. Honestly this start is a grand one. No doubt Mother Therese work in India is a super example role model of servitude to other less fortunate.
World Pulse women are generously super to support you because we try to make all women here feel at home and welcome full of free speech to express herself. I am sure we look forward to hear more about your contributions to the hospital and wherever else you desire to donate your time and efforts.
Congratulations!
