Reading my words to people, being able to emote as my words were intended during their birth, was a beautiful experience. I loved the freedom to truly connect with my audience, and be vulnerable in the telling of my truth.
I am surprised at how much fun my first 5k was!
I will never have enough time, talent, or treasure to fully give back to the people and organizations that have helped me through, but I can use what I have, when I have it, to support services that others will benefit from.
While it was fun, I had to battle that bitchy, mean girl voice inside my head. You know her, right? She tells you that you are too fat, too ugly, too uptight, too…everything! But the truth is, dear readers, is that this book is my story, pieces of me that even those closest to me are not aware of.
Once in a while, when you least expect it, you make a connection that catapults you to the next step in your journey. And if you are lucky, that one new connection will lead you to another, then another, and so on. As an author, there is no greater gift than being seen and heard, especially by another author.
