“No matter what anybody tells you, words and ideas can change the world.”
When I was in the 7th grade I was given a bookmark with this poem on it. My parents stuck it on my study table so I would see it each time I lifted up my head from my desk. I would read it every time I had a looming challenge (mostly exams :-)) ahead of me. And it gave me so much courage to keep going.
Today my bookmark is old and frayed but as its print fades slowly, its words shine brighter in my memory. Don’t underestimate the power of surrounding your loved ones with messages of love, strength and inspiration. You’ll be surprised what a big difference it can make. #GiftTheLight
