The Courage to Have a Voice and to Use It

I created several   “I have a voice and I use it”  pages a few years ago, but have recently been updating them…

it seems that  learning to use one’s voice is a progression, not a static goal.

When I originally made these pages, I focused on the idea of just going ahead and using one’s voice. But recently I realized that it might be helpful, at least for some who might be a bit more shy or reticent,  to break that goal up and look at a progression…

from realizing that one might have something to say that could  be of value to others
and then,
developing the motivation to  “say it”
“to have a voice and to use it”
holding  strongly to that intention
taking a chance and start doing that
to keep practicing using that voice
again….and again…and again….
to simply persist and keep trying…
And so,
for each of us to have the courage
to find our own voice
and to use it….
May we all find the motivation, intention, courage, energy and voice
to be able to do that….

    Great reminders, Kathy.

    I love the line from Desiderata: Speak Your Truth Quietly and Clearly . . . and LISTEN to others.

    • We really do…there’s no way to share that truth without the voice…your own blog is so helpful for all of us who read it to develop that voice…thank you so much for the positive energy, effort and insight that you share with us all.
