With time and through intentional exploration, we grow in self-awareness. Our sense of purpose becomes defined and our actions, congruent with the people we aspire to be. We discover a voice and we gain the courage to speak, do, and become. We become the sheroes we’ve been waiting for and we are gratified! To be human is to be a gallant and impressive creature. As true as it may be, this is only part of the whole human. Other parts may be complicated, untenable, or bewildering. Through attempting to enter these parts, a layered story begins to form, making real connection possible where perceptions adjust and empathy gets planted in fertile ground. Our stories can change the world, especially when we tell them whole.

Sherrie Fernandez-Williams is author of Soft: A Memoir. Her poems and essays can be found in both literary journals and anthologies. Along with writing, she is an arts administrator and facilitates creative writing workshops.
