I woke up bright and early this morning with wind in my sails. I knew exactly what the day had in store. I had been asked if I would mentor at a high school on behalf of WriteGirl, an organization that helps empower underprivileged teenage girls by promoting creativity. I've participated in their yearly larger workshops before. Although the girls have it rough they are eager and bright and enthusiastic.
I'm all about mentoring and paying it forward these days. I've found that when I give I wind up getting back something I didn't even know I was missing. I grabbed my coffee and off I drove.
