Out of my personal fire emerged a passion for writing – a healthy, productive means to heal my pain, expose my fears, and confront my discomfort head-on. Writing became not my form of self-comfort, but my go-to tool to conquer insecure, superficial, and honest thoughts about myself.

I challenge you to release the thoughts you’ve held onto for so long. I urge you to start the conversation you’ve been biting your tongue on.  Use this therapeutic exercise not only as a form of self-comfort, but use it as one of your tools on your own journey of self-discovery.  It could be a song, a poem, a short essay, a set of goals, or even your deepest secrets posted anonymously.  Any way you can discover the power of expression through writing, get it out.

My transparency, sense of humor, experience, and intellect make for an interesting perspective that my friends can’t seem to get enough of. Do you have something on your mind? Want to ask me for my advice? Here’s your chance!

I serve my tea piping hot so submit at your own risk. No, but really, the goal at DYQ is to evoke conversation, so start with me.
