Somehow over the years, my journals became my release. There is solace in the pages, and have learned more about myself through the writing of my daily thoughts. That’s why I recommend journaling consistently to everyone I know. It’s my greatest source for personal development and growth.

It’s inspired me to learn, to seek to understand, to hear, to observe, and to ask questions.

It had meaning and fullness because of the grueling nights of projects and studying, because of the involvement I had created within my community with peers and professors, because of the passionate people I surrounded myself with, inspiring me day in and day out, and lastly because I was pushed outside of my comfort zone in every avenue.

Forgiveness for yourself, forgiveness for others will be the one thing that will restore your faith in unconditional love.
This is the start of something really special; Maddie is the first person who has allowed me share their story on my blog for Empowering Women and I can’t thank her enough for being real, vulnerable, and open with you all to share her experience, insight, and advice
