I was asked recently to provide an example of an empowered highly sensitive person who has overcome difficulty and has been able to live a good and productive life. This person mentioned… “It would be helpful for people to brainstorm and name out loud other empowered HSP’s-and that if I or anyone else can think of some, please share it. We need all the role models we can get!”
I thought this was a great idea! I asked myself…Why can’t I give myself as an example? I’m on the high side of being highly sensitive. I’ve overcome many difficult times in my life and have been living a good and productive life. Why not me?

On further thought, I realized that it’s important to have role models that can inspire others to live their best lives. That’s what my passion and writing is all about!
