Babble talk, M's Voice.


First off, this is Mina, Daughter of Maria de Chirikof! This is me doing a stream of thought, so I apologize if it's out of order. Any way here I go!

I was just noticing the world seems to be getting better. Little by little. I think this is a wonderful thing and I'm happy people aren't scared to talk about bad events. Isn't that fabulous? That's why I am happy to be at World Pulse because I can see everything changing!

By everyone learning about other problems, fears, hopes and desires, we can help each other grow and get confidence in our own voices. But what is more important than our voice would be the opinion behind it. One a person realizes the power of there voice, it's the best tool they will ever have.

Maybe they will be surprised how many people have the same opinion but never say anything because they think it's to rude or it's not worth saying it. I have always regretted not saying something when I heard if I just said anything it could have changed somethings.... Hmm. I'm sure lots of people have had this experience.

I like world pulse because I can't talk for the life of me to anyone, but here its special. I can have fun talking and give advise even though I'm afraid of the reaction. But I just wanted to say how important it is to have respect for your self. Once you have that, anything is possible! ... Bye. :)

respect for oneself

Hi Mina,

Thank you for writing this! It's good to hear that you feel PulseWire is a place where you can speak your mind and gain confidence in yourself for finding that voice inside you that is sometimes hard to bring out in other situations. I know exactly what you mean!

I hope that you continue to speak your mind here because we love hearing from you!
