Voice is such a tricky thing to identify and is something that changes as frequently as life changes us. This post from Sacha Black is definitely worth a read if you are struggling to find yours.

I didn’t know what I was looking for. In fact, I hadn’t found so much as a single proverbial needle from an entire field of haystacks.
