Awareness is the greatest agent for change.
~~ Eckhart Tolle
He knows not his own strength who hath not met adversity.
~~ William Samuel Johnson
He who knows others is wise. He who knows himself is enlightened.
~~ Lao Tzu
Whether you self-isolated, or you were out doing direct action, or were an armchair activist, the events of the last year have pushed many of us outside our own comfort zone. What have you learned about yourself during the last year and how did you come to that self-awareness?
What did you learn from it all that you can share with other readers? We want to read your point of view. Be sure to include your “AHA!” moment! Submit your essay to us when you’re ready. If you are already working with an editor at GMP, please be sure to name that person on the form. If you are not currently working with a GMP editor, one will be assigned to you.
Are you stuck on what to write? Sign up for our Writing Prompts emails, you’ll get ideas directly from our editorial team. If you already have a final draft, then click the red box above to send your post through our submission system.
Improve your writing, expand your reach, and monetize your craft.
We welcome all experience levels.
