10 Precious Things

We each have a different reason for coming to this platform.

Or maybe not.

Maybe it is our collective love for the written word that draws us together, united; writers with a need to write. It can be no other way for us.

In a previous article I said I believe we are all connected. We share an intimate bond because of our passion for writing. We share a writer’s soul.

I hold to this.

But, Medium has given me so many things that are equally as precious as the opportunity to write.

What about you?

Upon reflection, I can name 10 precious things Medium has given me for which I am grateful.

Confidence: Writing on Medium has increased my confidence. Not just in writing, but in all areas of my life. I just feel more confident. I am a writer. I feel like I have a bit more of a bounce in my step.

Connection: What could be more rewarding than connecting with other writers whenever and with whomever we choose. Like a kid in a candy store. Does it get any better?

Creativity: Medium provides us with the best platform to be creative. We can personalize our settings, choose colors, fonts, make lists, and pick unique images and videos. We are free to write whatever and whenever we want. Our creativity can run wild.

Courage: I have definitely become more courageous. It used to take me forever to push that publish button. Not anymore!

Commitment: I have made a commitment to write and that just feels good. I am fulfilling my commitment and I love it.

Clarity: Writing on Medium has given me clarity. I have read so many interesting articles from so many amazing people. This opportunity has broadened my horizons and enriched my life. It is a big world out there.
