My journey – what sustains me!

I was born once and once again
To execute my life destiny
I improved skills learnt
To meet set challenges and goals

Bars were raised with new challenges
A rebirth was inevitable
I practice and mastered skills learnt
To survive life’s extreme tasks

Unexpected challenges crept behind
Crippling me to near extinction
Miracles do happen, unimaginable!
To let me survive the unexpected

Across oceans arose shocking challenges
Mastered skills were not enough
To survive the unchartered thoughts
An SOS was sent as last resort

With pride experts offered solutions
With their prejudices, beliefs and convictions
With my own mysterious structures
Me, challenged the devilish assumptions

The extreme mission of evolution began
Sharing and connecting is a survival challenge
That calls for compassion we need
To succeed the goal of peace and happiness

Me with limited wisdom, the search began
Me with contradicting infinite thoughts
Me, ready to protect humanity
I live ‘the worlds’ to Reach4Peace.

This was a very tough task for me to write a personal journey. The words I have written above was written last year when I was going through one of my toughest challenges. I have brought minor adaptations to reflect my journey with my present mind set. That expresses my life without exposing anyone one. For some unknown reason I feel safer to share my thought hear and I want to explore WorldPulse as one of ‘the worlds’ I experience. I am not sure of the future but I am adamant not to let history repeat itself. I am willing to commit myself to educate and work with others who have similar passion, values and motivation to realise a dream. I am hopeful that in WorldPulse there is opportunity for everyone and not for the dominant. The oppressed without a choice (or rather to scared to voice or not know any better) I want to represent. It was my searching that brought me to the Worldpulse. Most of the social networking is for entertainment to kill time in a wasteful manner, playing virtual games. Facebook is such an example. I needed something more meaningful. I needed global connection. I do not want to be casted to a corner without a voice.

I want to do something I enjoy rather than do due to obligation. It is free will that goes around Worldpulse that keeps me engaged.

social media can be purposeful

Amei,

I want to represent

Amei, you will represent. I once read a statement that said "Don't just wish for a legacy, Live your legacy." This means being creative with your time, talents and resources. Reach out to those who would not be able to see " a world of similiarities", (if it wasn't for your post.) You are already a leader, you've created solutions, made foundations, answered questions, and are doing things with due diligence. Contine to be a leader, be strong and let your wisdom grow. Invest in yourself so the world can reap the benefits of your knowledge. Do all you can to inspire and live and continue to have a "voice for the future". I'm encouraged!

Peace,
Shawanna

Thank you Joanna, Shawanna

True, Joanna, I later did realise after writing that Social network is wasteful; I was just been bias and not analysing thoughtfully of the opportunities. It could be influenced purposeful manner ... I could have posted this a year ago in social network where I am a member but did not have the courage mainly because in that network the people are mostly friends (of a different nature) and family.

Hey Girls, do you think I should share this with my other friends and family? Shawanna's reply is making me think I should share with my other friends... but I am not too confident and a bit scared how that group will react!

Thanks, for generating my own thinking and Joanne your comment have given me new perspective to how I approach toward social network.

Cheers :-)
Amei
