Thank you so much for the encouragement. Sometimes it does help to have a reminder that I have made a difference. When I first joined Medium, I had just gotten a laptop and hadn’t had one in years. I bought it with the purpose of starting to write again and I remember making a promise to myself that I wanted my writing to matter in this world and somehow to use it to help others. I have enjoyed creating spaces and communities for other writers and I am so grateful that it is helpful.
