First of all, can I just say thank you so, so much for all your thoughtful and caring comments on Monday’s post?
I don’t know why I always second guess putting my feelings out there for the world to see.
The minute I hit, “Publish,” I always think, “Shit. I should take that back.”
Part of me is afraid because both my mother and mother-in-law read this blog and worry that I’m struggling out here in rural Tennessee. (Hi Mamas – I’m doing GREAT!)
Another part of me worries that this is internal stuff that I’m grappling with so I don’t need to air my dirty laundry on here for others to see.
But then there are days like Monday.
When I’m reminded that sometimes a good ol’ writing session helps free up my mind and my heart.
The therapy I get from putting my feelings down in writing is almost immediate. But what makes this place even more sacred and special for me is the kind of feedback I get. Not just the love and the support (which is SO appreciated). But the people who are like, “YES. ME TOO. I’M GOING THROUGH THIS NOW.”
The ability to be absolutely and completely vulnerable on here and show you the parts of me that aren’t glorified and glamorous is what makes this blog such a special place for me. Because we’re all a little imperfect. So why even bother pretending that we’re not?
Happy hump day to all you imperfect people.
I love you and appreciate you every single day.
