From My Heart to Yours

“The idea is to write it so that people hear it and it slides through the brain and goes straight to the heart.” – Maya Angelou

These words resonate so well with me. They’re on the home page of my blog to remind me to always give purpose to my words. I also want to show others my wish is to give them a reading experience.

I don’t count the words I write, but I make every effort to make those words count. They’re more than just scribble on a piece of paper or a fancy font. Once my words are read, digested, and translated in the readers mind, my hope is for them to affect their heart. To encourage change. To release a word in them. Whether used in poetry, drama, fiction, or non-fiction, words are powerful and should be used to serve a purpose.

Happy 90th Birthday Maya Angelou, and thank you for touching my heart with your words!

You know, writing about myself has always been a challenge. It's not that I'm unsure of who I am, but rather that I like people to discover me on their own. I will tell you this much - I'M REAL! I guess that's all you need to know for your first approach. From that point you'll understand the power behind such a statement. If you're interested in what I do, that's another story. I embrace life to live my purpose: I mother, I friend; I laugh, I cry, I support; I love, I like, I admire. Mainly I trust and have faith, and thank God for every day I am able to use my life experiences to help people through theirs. Want to know more? Discover along with me as I live my life out loud.
