Face Everything And Rise

When faced with the unknown,
fear will occur
It will make you irrational
It will make you doubt yourself
It will paralyze you from taking action
and
it will justify excuses
Ultimately though,
fear is a choice
It’s not something we’re born with
but rather something learned through experience
To overcome it
we need to acknowledge it
by
accepting the failures,
accepting the hardships,
accepting the challenges
and
be willing to overcome it
by being steadfast and courageous
and facing everything
knowing that
if we give our utmost,
our very heart and soul
we’ll eventually rise

Our Ability As Writers…

Our ability as writers
is the gift to tell stories
that mean something to people
We use our words
to empathize,
to empower,
to educate
and to entertain
Writers are real people
with real stories and
their words have real emotions
at the center of it
Our words may be
our experience,
or it may not but
it allows somebody the opportunity
to be changed,
the opportunity to have
their minds expanded or
to get educated in a new way
This form of expression
is the most beautiful and powerful
aspect this craft is capable of
