I like that I am able to stand out now that I am older. I know trying to be like someone else makes us feel extra self conscious and I dealt with bullying from other kids when I was a little girl but I am trying to let go of the hurt feeling and pain. I have been able to stand out in my 30s. It’s not everyday that miracles happen but I have had God’s divine intervention and healing in my life. I pray and try to think positive thoughts. I know God sees me where I am. I am happy more people know my name through the years of writing I did in creative writing workshops including memoir writing and also my course with The Institute of Children’s Literature. I am going to be waiting to see if the library reopens in the next two weeks. I am getting closer to finishing my course.
