One of the things I like about myself as I get older is the confidence I have gained. I no longer fear the opinions of others or the rejection that my writing may receive as I continue forward. I appreciate the good as well as the bad. I choose what I let affect me. I have a better understanding of the differentiating views of people. We all have so much history that shapes us into who we become, none of it makes us any better than the other, just unique. Life is an emotional journey and I have gotten a lot of things wrong along the way but what is most important is that I achieve my goals.
It may have taken many years but I finally found my voice in my writing. I found a way that I can express myself to the world. I hope I can inspire others to have confidence in their abilities, to take a leap of faith and belief in themselves, and of course, entertain them with my stories :)
