With no one to turn to who could understand my pain, I was compelled to put my feelings down on paper. Writing became extremely therapeutic for me, and I developed a great love for it.
I began to experience release from my pain as I penned my emotions. Simultaneously, I drew strength from the written work of Marianne Williamson and Iyanla Vanzant. The more I realized the power of words, the more I desired to empower others through my own writing.
October 19, 2009 marked the official launch of Moy’s Card in a Frame INC., a collection of inspirational messages and literary art pieces that offer healing to the broken-hearted.
That same year, I wrote my signature piece entitled You Inspire Me. I remember the evening I finished writing it; I called up a childhood friend, and after reciting the message to her several times, I remember saying in excitement, “This message is not just for me, it’s also for other women like me!” You Inspire Me was in fact inspired by the way I viewed myself and is a depiction of other women with whom I shared similar struggles.
As I journeyed through life, I began to realize that the love that I had for writing was really a love that I had for people. I desperately desired to contribute to the well-being of people’s lives. With first-hand experience as a single-mother and entrepreneur, I was conscious of the personal and societal limitations that we face as women.
It was in recognizing the deep desire that we have to achieve success that I founded You Inspire Me Women.
