Underestimating your influence

I’ve been writing every day for a few months now. Despite my (very) small readership, I’m constantly amused when I hear of friends (and strangers) reading and sharing posts. I don’t write long posts, nor are the topics I deal with particularly complex or original.

But what I’m learning is that none of that matters.

We project meaning and context onto ideas based on the lens through which we view the world. So if something I say — however simplistic — moves someone closer to their goals or provides the push needed in their life, I’d be doing them a disservice by discounting the impact of what I share.

This of course applies to you, too.

So share.
