I am new to Thrive, and I joined because I would constantly see the articles on my linkedin page and get so inspired by others ‘ stories of life experiences. Being able to read that others were going through the same issues I was, was a relief. So I am here now, hoping to help someone else out there understand that they are not alone and hopefully the stories I have to tell will uplift and encourage others to tell their stories.

I want to use Thrive as a platform to express m emotions and thoughts so they are not being kept hidden in the depths of my heart. As I have learned, that isn’t really the best way to live life, and as quoted by one of my favorite reads A Picture of Dorian Gray, “I don’t want to be at the mercy of my emotions. I want to use them, to enjoy them, and to dominate them”. No longer will I hide in the shadows of my darkest thoughts.

To all those that come across my stories, I hope I can leave you with something that you might take to heart or pass along to the next person in need of some uplifting and encouragement.
