Every once in a while we get a vision, a glimpse of the effect -- or maybe affect -- that we have on people. Goodness knows I enjoy writing my Ramblings and the other things I write and I usually get some warm kudos for them, but every once in a while something comes across -- out of the blue, it seems -- that tells me unequivocally that I'm doing what I'm supposed to be doing. In this case it happened a couple of days ago, via someone who accidentally stumbled onto this blog, and left an incredible comment that made me grateful that I could be there for her to find.
I'm going to share an excerpt from the last of her post, and this is not by way of bragging, but mostly to say that I take seriously what I write, and I take seriously the responsibility of sharing my perspectives with my readers, and when I get a comment like the following, I am incredibly humbled... and that much more careful because I realize my words can have an affect far greater than the concept of just sharing a few thoughts. And you know we talked about "realizing" in my first Ramblings audio -- which I think we're going to dub "K-Talk". You can listen to that here: http://ramblings.ringold.net/audio/ramblings1.mp3
But this comment from an "accidental" visitor... This is why I write! (and now speak) and I thank you for reading and finding value in my words, and coming back time after time:
"I want to thank you for using your natural gift of empowering and creating positivity to pass on to me. I feel better right now than I have in weeks, and you're right, I can get there. I have subscribed to your Once-a-day-vitamin-K and can't wait!
Thank you Kelvin, for making me see that today isn't an obstacle but another stepping stone to where I want to be. And that this is reachable..."

Have an awesome day, folks. And remember...the best way to predict your future, is to create it.
