The Written Session
ALL her life, Amy (co-host of The Expression Sessions) has been "writing" books. Ghost books that no one would ever see. She wrote her life, her pain, her joy, her transformations...but never shared any of it. Secretly, she always wanted to be an "Author" but didn't know where to begin. To compound that, she subconsciously felt and assumed that her words, her stories, weren't "worthy". This is the trap, and the plight, of all of us who hide our light, passion, talent, and expression from the rest of the world. Afraid of being too much, misunderstood, or worse yet...actually SEEN. Our 'self-expression' sits in dusty bins in the corners of our basements. It's time to burn that dust!
From diary writing as youth, to instagram captions - our words are the snapshots into our inner workings, our deepest fears and our greatest joys. It's an outlet to work through our conflicts and our journeys. When we express ourselves through our words we can put on paper a our greatest emotions and let them rest OUTWARDLY.
Any blogger, author, lyricist, journalist, or letter writer knows - we share a bit our ourselves with others when we are willing to put it into words.
And isn't that the whole point of expression in the first place?
Over the past several months Amy had a co-authorship opportunity that not allowed her he opportunity of a lifetime, but deepened her commitment to this form of self-expression. Best part is... It is only the beginning.
