I never realized or thought much about how much a good sense of humour can make someone's day, or even in some cases, change or even save a life... The other day, I got a PM from a businessman on another blogging site who praised me for my sense of humour as he had been very depressed, and well, frankly had lost his will to keep on going... I not going to share what I had written with you guys, but I just wanted you to know how each and every word that you write can be truly important to someone, even if it's not that important to you... Writers can weave the world together, and some sometimes, maybe a lot times, our craft can bring a Joy to the lives of others! :) For those who write The Good Stuff have a great day and keep up the Good Work! :) Get your free guide for freelance earning resources all over the world http://www.worldwidefreelance.com/

I think you are right. If someone was depressed and he/she had read the humour then he/she will be happy all the day. I am the one who will be like that because if I see someone happy or read humour messages I will be very happy all the day and forget the stress that come out from my work.

I've always been such a believer that you never know when something you do will have a major impact on another person's life. I used to read my poetry in local poetry contests many years ago. I had one poem especially that was about being beautiful and sensual and worthwhile even though others may only see me as a 'fat girl'. I was so afraid that people would laugh at me when I got up to read that poem the first time - instead, the whole room stood up and cheered and for months after that, every time I got up to read, someone would ask me to read that poem again. Years later, a woman stopped me in a supermarket parking lot and asked if I wasn't the woman who used to read poetry. I said I was and she thanked me. She said that she had come to a poetry night where I read that, and that my poem had made her see herself completely differently and given her the courage to tell her boyfriend to treat her with respect. She said my words had literally changed her life, so I know exactly how you must have felt to get that PM. It's amazing to know that something you did touched someone so deeply - and even more amazing to consider how many other people the small things you do can touch. What a great story to hear!

BIB, Precious One! The fact that you are aware of your own "Words Of Power", is one rare and endearing quality that Nature has seen fit to reveal to you, and I believe that you deserve a HUGE bunch roses for the way you live your Life!

Peaceful, we myLotters have always known you're a terrific person! This only enhances that idea. Now I need to thank you for that website, as I had no idea someone had actually organized the information I find strictly by accident now and then. You're a gem!

Thanks. We still have almost daily storms there's a lot of flooding, but that's just part of the deal living here. I'm going to make use of that website, particularly, while recuperating. A dislocated jaw from 1996 has caused the joints to be replaced twice, and I guess it's time again. Since I can't talk for a while after the surgery, I can't teach, but I can certainly write!

each and every word that you write can be truly important to someone, even if it's not that important to you... Even the most insignificant curses you throw at inanimate objects. A friend of mine once told me I had saved her life (shocking surprise... I'm more likely to put someone in danger with my clumsiness). Apparently, as she prepared to take an overdose, she heard me swearing (quite loudly) at the VHS player as it refused to behave like a VHS player should. She said it made her laugh... and that just sort of changed her whole perspective and she couldn't go through with it. It took her months to finally tell me what had happened. *shrug* We both laughed after she told me.

What an great story, ShardAerliss. We never know how much some tiny thing we do can affect another person's life. I tell my kids that all the time - but I don't think I'll mention your cursing to them even though I think it's great. I'd rather have them think I'm talking about smiling at a stranger or helping a little boy up when he falls off his bike.

hi p eaceful yes writers can bring a lot of joy to others and sometimes even save a life, right.Sometimes what people say can also affect us. I remember this cardiologist who told me you are going to be fine, just fine because I was worried over some heart tests he had ordered to assure that I could have surgery safely as I am a diabetic . and sure enough all the tests turned out okay and the surgery was okay too. So Iwas fine, just fine.

Thats really cool. Go you. I sort of saved someones life once when I asked this person (I think it was a woman it could have been a man though, I don't remember) if the braclet they were wearing was "one of those new diabetes bracelets" and the person was like "OMG I forgot to take my insulin today, thank you so much for brining that up, I forgot I even was wearing it!" I don't know if it counts though, but still, it was pretty cool.
