Photo Friday- Write Like You’re Running Out of Time

I am a HUGE fan of the musical Hamilton. There’s a line that is repeated throughout the score: “Why do you write like you’re running out of time?” Alexander Hamilton kept immaculate records and diaries and used the written word to compel others to see his viewpoint.

I may not be writing to fight for the birth of our country, but lately I feel like I’ve been writing like I’m running out of time. And this is a good thing! I’ve had multiple projects come my way where I will have different platforms to not only educate but share other people’s stories. I’ve been blown away by the willingness to open up about the difficulties of living with migraine. Each story is unique, but all sound so familiar too. I can’t wait to share this project with you.

I wish I had been more consistent with my blog schedule, but I guess I have to figure out the balance between all things in my life. I’ll keep writing like I’m running out of time. I don’t think that feeling will ever grow old. It fuels my purpose.

The main purpose is to make the invisible more visible. The…

My business card says “Professional Patient.” I get so many questions about this. What does that mean exactly? To me, I have acquired skills and knowledge that “healthy people” don’t have. Having chronic migraine and pain has exposed me to situations that many others never have to face. When your health turns suddenly, a lot…
