Not until recently did I find my voice. A woman who has done so is unstoppable! If I knew then what I know now…I would have kept all my black and white marble books full of my voice when I was a little girl. I could have read the evolution of my writing–of my life. I believe in the power of writing and that it gives women a platform to be heard in a world where we are often hushed. We are told to stand down and stay in our place. Why is that still the status quo? There’s room for our voices in every room and in every corner of our existence. I’m naturally an introvert so writing gives me room to express my ideas, opinions and thoughts in ways beyond my wildest imagination. Without it, I’d be lost. It’s a vessel that pours into me and in many ways, me into it. While I write, I feel emboldened, empowered and free. I encourage my girls to write. The pen is their power that they will use to change the trajectory of their lives and the lives of other women. We can become anything we choose to be through writing. There are no limits only those we place on ourselves and allow others to place on us. Its up to every human being to believe in all the little girls who are destined to grow up and change the world. Let’s challenge and encourage them to step into their fullest potential!
