Don't underestimate the power of your story.
I was gifted these flowers with a sweet note from my neighbor the other day. We had shared a conversation the night before about what we do, and I told her my story of leaving my corporate job to pursue work, and a life, that felt more fulfilling and resonant. The next day she surprised me with these and a big hug to let me know how much my story touched her. She is currently studying for her medical boards and is at the beginning of a career in medicine. While her journey will look different than mine, hearing my story still made an impact.
Whatever your path is, own it, share it. You never know how it may be received.
