I don’t know when I start to write. Maybe it begins at junior high school when I know this phrase, “Dear diary”. Through that word I have a diary book. I write everything that have happened during all day on it, about my feeling, how I spent my time, my madness, and another.
As time goes by, I realize that writing is not only to express my feeling, bigger than that. Writting is for inspiring others. Inspiring others for good things is remarkable. Maybe you’re not a leader but you have a dream to make this world become a better place, you still can make your dream comes true. Write. You don’t have to scream in front of many people to express your opinion, just write and they will know it. Writing is spreading goodness if what you write is good things.
At first it is so hard. You don’t know what will you write. You don’t have any ideas. You don’t know how to arrange words become a good sentece. Your grammar is so bad. Your knowledge is limited. How if other people don’t like my writing. Never mind, just keep writing. Do you know baobabs? Before they grow so big, they start out by being little. So do you. Great writer never come up suddenly. They are faithful to the process. Because process can make them great.
If you find comment like “Why do you still writing even though it is bad?”. Don’t give up. As long as you want to inspire others, go ahead. You don’t know wheter your writing will make a change or not. Intend it for goodness, Insya Allah goodness will follow you.
“The best of people are those who are the most beneficial to people”. I am used to make this hadith be my encouragement for doing goodness. And spreading kindness to others is one of beneficial activities. If you are beneficial to others so that you are the best people on this world.
