Thank you for the kind response and ongoing support of my writing, Kay Bolden and Dan Moore!

One of the biggest hurdles for me when I began writing (particularly as a non-writer) was feeling like I had ANYTHING of value to say whatsoever. I can’t remember which stories I stumbled upon within my first few months on Medium, but there was a message about the fact that each of us has our own life experience and perspective that help craft our voice. I realized that (to my shock) my writing was unique and distinct.

I gave myself “permission” to write from that moment on. It’s still a bit uncomfortable sometimes to share such personal stories, but it sits easier with me.
