There’s a Reason I’m Here.

Here’s a little something to familiarize you with me and what brings me to the blogging world πŸ™‚

 

Here I am, one in a million billions,

As unique as everyone else.

Finding my place in this world,

Knowing I’m going to leave it forever once.

Why, then, take the pain to be here?

To do justice to this birth, I say.

Inspire others by standing up,

Always doing what’ll make Him stay.

Here I am, one in a million billions,

What difference can I make?

A small voice among thousands speaks,

It’ll be she, who’ll never fade.Β

    • Thank you… Since I was new to the blogging world when you nominated me for the award, I didn’t do a post, then, since I was unaware about it. I will, now! πŸ™‚

  1. Howdy ShethP.
    Until today, I was under the impression that you were a man. not kidding. ShethP sounds masculine.

    I don’t know if reverse nomination is a thing. But I feel compelled to nominated you anyway. πŸ˜€

    • Haha, no problem. I find that quite amusing. Sorry for the confusion. πŸ™‚ Though I do wonder how you could have missed the profile picture with a girl in it; if you didn’t, then what you must have thought.
      Thank you so much for the ‘reverse nomination’, but I doubt I can accept it – I have a hunch that it may be strictly against the rules. 😦

      • I don’t think these awards are meant to be taken seriously. I have a hunch all people who get nominated are considered winners. I think wordpress is just helping us connect with others.
        As for the misunderstanding about your gender, that IS funny. Sheth feels like a male name. Your profile picture is a painting. That is awfully generic. But mine is a sculpture, so I’m not complaining. πŸ˜€
        I was looking through your posts to find the poem about reading, when I saw an article you wrote where you said all girls should go shopping with their fathers. That is how it clicked for me.

        Comedy of errors. That is all.

          Again, I don’t think you understand. Sheth isn’t my name. But I’ll let it be for now. I can get used to this. πŸ˜€

          At the moment, I don’t want to laugh out loud lest someone may think I’m crazy. I’m compelled to hide my face. Haha… a coincidence indeed! I don’t know whether to rub my hands in glee or sympathize. πŸ˜€

    • Wow. This is quite the pleasant surprise. To know that my blog, which has no direction whatsoever, is special to someone (whose blog I admire very much) is in itself a great honor. Thank you so much for your kind words… You just made my day! Also, thank you for the (three?!) awards… I haven’t done a blog post in a while, so this will give me a good excuse. πŸ˜€ Have a good one! β™₯

  3. I love this! It’s so true. We are all unique with our own gifts, blessings, beauty, skills, and other things to add to the world. We each have a unique light that only we possess, a space only we can fill. Even when other people have more there’s still something that only each person, alone, can give to the world. We have our own perspectives, views, experiences, and ways about us that no one else possesses. I wish everyone would realize this, realize how amazing it is just to be them. Being the person you are is one of the greatest blessings!

    • Thank you for your kind words. You’re absolutely right about every person having something unique to share with the world. We may not know it, but our one word or action may be inspiring someone out there. I appreciate you stopping by and taking the time to share your views! πŸ™‚

  4. You ARE lucky if you have found your place in the world, and have made peace with it. I don’t think I could ever do that.
    A small voice among thousands speaks – I get that. Being heard, really heard, means a lot.

    • It’s more about the process. The process of figuring out why you are you and why you are here in this world – your purpose. Again, it’s not about being heard but about not shying away. In the beginning, blogging was something I thought would help me by giving words to my thoughts but I have realized that it’s more about making a difference and to have the courage to do so along with the knowledge that your every action can either ‘make or break’ someone. If you can inspire someone by sharing your thoughts, why not do that? You won’t get likes or comments every time but there will be someone who will read your words at the right time and even though you may not know it, your words may have had a huge impact on them.
      Thanks for your comment… You kind of helped me put things in perspective. It can all get confusing sometimes. πŸ™‚

      • I know this comment isn’t directed at me but it came to my inbox and it truly resonates with me. I knew before I set up a blog account that I probably wouldn’t get many followers and the blog wouldn’t get much attention, for a few reasons. I’m not good at “advertising” or “broadcasting” or whatever the word may be. Some people know how to get out there and make themselves known; it’s a certain skill people learn. I don’t know much at all about html and things like that so I knew the blog wouldn’t be the prettiest. Lol I don’t have any expertise in writing or designing, no special job or skills. And I knew what I want it to be about, which is personal development, life lessons learned, wisdom, positivity, love, cheesy, sappy stuff! Not everyone is into that and I knew many people would not care much. But I knew if something I share or write can touch just one person for the better, that’s amazing. Even if someone doesn’t comment, “like”, or share, and just “lurks,” the person may still be positively impacted by it. There are so many people and blog posts that inspire me deeply and sometimes I never comment on it or “like” it, not always for a specific reason, sometimes I just quietly take it in. You never know who you are inspiring or may inspire later.
        And I have received so many more follows, likes, comments, reblogs… than I ever thought I would in the almost two years since I set up this blog account. It’s great to have a blog for yourself and still know you are also impacting others.
        I saw a girl post recently on her own blog that she feels that blogging is too vain and self-promoting and she’s tired of it now and no longer motivated and inspired because of the vanity she realizes it is. But I believe our own stories can deeply inspire others. I love reading about people’s lives and the things they love and learn.
        Whether or not it’s vanity, in this case it’s a good thing! It takes courage to write publicly too because no matter how sweet, loving, and positive your content is, someone somewhere will be against it and may respond negatively or rudely. I think sharing a bit of ourselves is amazing!

        • You have perfectly summarized what I was trying to say! I completely agree with the ‘lurking’ part and yes, there are time when you may not feel like liking or commenting but what you have read has an impact on you. It definitely takes courage to write publicly and let your thoughts be known to everyone. Blogging does not always have to be about you and ‘if you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.’ Even if you may be blogging about things revolving around your life, it doesn’t mean that you are being vain. It’s a way of saying, “Hey. I feel you. I go through the same thing and I am not afraid to share it.” Thank you so much for your lovely comment! You have chosen all the right words to bring across the message. πŸ™‚

      • It is always confusing ShethP. If it isn’t, you are God. And I don’t believe in you πŸ˜‰
        As for me, I took to blogging as a personal diary for my thoughts. I just experiment. Every reader is a bonus I don’t deserve. At least, that is how I look at it. I can’t count the number of stuff I wrote and then discarded, feeling stupid. Now, with the blog, I just write. I really don’t care who reads or not. Every person who does, is inadvertently doing me a huge favor, because, I am ashamed to say that I crave an audience. πŸ˜€ And, I don’t discard stuff anymore.
        Cheers!

          It’s a pity if someone throws out their own writing. There are times when I feel like not sharing some things with the world and during such times, I write but I make the post ‘private’. Completely discarding my thoughts would be an insult to them. πŸ™‚
          Happy Blogging!

  5. The sentiments have been put together in such a beautiful way. Enjoyed reading a few of the posts too…the opinion expressed is very similarto what is felt by a lot of Indians today. But yes, most of us don’t think aloud. A pity. But glad that at least you have.
