"When writing the story of your life,
don't let anyone else hold the pen."
Writing has always been the channel for my creativity and a way to order my thoughts and consequently my life. Journaling, at one point, was what kept me sane when chaos ruled. The act of putting words on paper was a way of meditating, of calming my mind. People have told me over the years that I should write a book. I harbored this thought for a long time now but until now have not attempted wholeheartedly to do so because it seems like such a daunting project.
This is not a quick process, nor is it an easy one, and it is not finished. There are many chapters in this life story, and the story is not a simple one to write but it has taken on a life of its own. Still, as I get older I am compelled to write my story, because if I don’t, then who will?
