I began answering you, Abhina, and realized what I was writing could be a stand-alone piece! So, I completed my "letter of advice" to you and submitted it to Crow's Feet, a publication for old folks like me ;) and anyone who wants to learn from us. You are tagged so you'll know when it's published.

I am grateful for the inspiration. I've been meaning to write something for Crow's Feet for several weeks and each time I tried, my mind went blank. You gave me the perfect topic. Thank you.

I was always a writer but lived in a bookkeeper’s body before I found Medium and broke free — well, almost. Working to work less and write more.
