The true gift is the journey…

When I let go and enjoy the process of writing, the destination (the finished page) is longer the goal.  The true gift is the journey.  The journey metaphor reminds me to make the moment the focal point, to be fully present.  To listen to the joy and grief in the moment.  To find the gift and the lesson in the moment.  Writing our memoirs allows us to honor each moment, which in turn makes our life journey rich and meaningful.

"Because of Tammy I have found confidence in my writing and feel blessed to be honored in such a way. I have found my voice. I have found freedom! I recommend anyone for whatever reason to expand their life and sign up for her writing workshops or classes. You'll be amazed at how good you are and how everyone has a story worth telling. Sign up and set your voice free!"
