I had the audacity to want more.
At 18, my plan was to marry my current boyfriend, go to the local community college, and become a nurse. I didn’t really want to be a nurse, but I was told they made a lot of money, so I let that be my guiding principle. Spoiler alert: the boy and I broke up and I hated nursing school. Another breakup and a dissent into a deep depression riddled with panic attacks later, I pulled myself up by my bootstraps and set my sights on Nashville after a clear, crisp voice whispered the word to me during a quiet moment of doing the thing I’ve always loved – writing.
That was the beginning of learning to trust that small voice deep inside me, even when it told me to do crazy things like move states or change careers. Following that voice got me to Nashville. Then back to Charlottesville. And then to Chapel Hill. Most recently, it’s brought me to Los Angeles, a place I think I’ll stay a while, to pursue a career as a television writer/creator/showrunner.

It used to bother me that I’m the poster child for a pearl clutching scandal. I fought to reconcile what I was taught with what I wanted. I fought against my own intuitive gifts, tried to be change adverse and settle for the life I’d always known – one where everything was a struggle. But in the end, I decided it was more important to be happy.
That’s what I do now. I pursue happiness. I allow myself to sit in stillness, hear that small voice within, and follow its direction – a direction that somehow always leads me to exactly where I need to be.
