I really have gone back and forth about writing here about what’s going on with me lately, but I think it’s time. You guys deserve some answers as to where I’ve been. You’ve invested your time, clicks, money, and love in me, and it’s time for me to repay that with some honesty. I really wanted to wait until I had some answers to give you, but I don’t. And I’m not sure when or if I ever will. So for now, I’m just going to write (and cry while I write, but you can’t see that).
Back in the day, when basically only my Mama and sisters were reading this blog, I would share everything I was going through. Every body ache. Every illness. Every sadness. Every story. But then this little place of mine that I love so dearly grew and grew and grew, and no longer did it feel like I was able to be so intimate in my stories. In fact, it became a lot less about me, and a lot more about you guys. I wanted to help you feel your best, and naturally that mean the lens shifted from me to you. It’s been wonderful and fulfilling to (hopefully!) reach so many people, but it does mean that I’m not as comfortable with sharing all of me anymore, so this post is really hard for me to write. Please be gentle with me.
