Last week was a huge landmark for What a Woman is Worth: After almost a year and a half of hard work and avoidance, of tears and triumph, I sent in the manuscript to the publisher. I ended up writing more of my own life story than I ever imagined I would, which made it far more difficult than I anticipated, but now that it’s done, I find enormous relief in having spoken.
There is something powerful about voice, about speaking, about opening up yourself in a way that you might really be heard. So today’s theme is “speak,” and whether you’re a writer or not, I’d encourage you to find the ways you need to do that– and do it.
(I have no idea why Spotify lists the Noah Gundersen song as “Garden”– it’s actually “Honest Songs.”)
Let me know:
What are your favorite “speak” songs?
