As I sit here and write this blog today, I question my own expertise as I spout off words of encouragement and ideas of bettering ourselves each and every day. There is a critique that voices his opinion within me on a constant basis. “What makes you an expert?” Below would be my response to that critique.

I’ve never claimed to be an expert on issues. That’s not where this comes from. It comes from a place of having my own experiences and sharing the insights I’ve gained after doing so.

It’s first-hand knowledge of trials and tribulations that may or may not be relatable to others. It’s a way of calling myself out and letting the drain of my head open and spill onto the page.

I don’t consider myself an expert, but a person who has gone through moments and learned and will continue to so (hopefully) for the rest of my life and share the lessons learned in order to help others in their journey.

If not, it’s a nice writing exercise.
