Let it Shine

Who I Was Before:

Before kids
Before marriage
Before suburbs
I was a writer.

I was fearless and full of possibility.

Who I am NOW...

Married to an amazing man
Proud mom to 2 wonderful boys
Friend to strong, inspiring women
Daughter to all of my loving parents

A Writer.

I've wanted to start a blog for a long time, but I was afraid to show my true self. I was worried what others would think about the real me. But the real me is beautiful.

My courageous friend M inspired me. My patient husband encouraged me. I am a lucky girl.

More than any other time in my life, being authentic seems of the utmost importance. It's like coming up for air.

So be it. This is me.

As frightening as truth-telling is, staying silent sometimes scares me even more. – Jen Lee
