The Day You Begin

Walking into a new place can be intimidating, especially when it seems like nobody there is quite like you. Maybe you look different or talk differently than the people around you, maybe you’re from a different place, or maybe your interests and tastes are unique. Regardless of the reason, it’s not easy to take those first steps into a new environment. However, Jacqueline Woodson’s beautiful book, “The Day You Begin,” reminds us that we all feel like outsiders at times. We are shown the bravery it takes to share our stories and open ourselves up to others. By doing so, we may find that we are not alone and that others are happy to meet us halfway.
