My Story Mondays


I mentioned last week that I was going to start sharing some of the hard parts of my story.  It seems as though this decision has opened me up to some of those old wounds, and now they seem as fresh as the day they were created.  Maybe this is good.  Maybe it will make the writing better.  More vivid.

So while I was aware that writing about some of these things would be difficult, I didn’t realize the toll it was going to take on me emotionally, to be quite honest.  Also, had I known, I might have kept putting it off.  So needless to say I had a couple rough days last week.  It seemed like everything set me off.  Every emotional sensor in my body seemed to go off all the time.

Good times.

I was going to just write a whole bunch of posts and just post them one after another, but since things are going the way they are, I think even though I may go ahead and write them all now, I’m only going to post them once a week.  On Monday.  That way we only have to deal with it once a week.  And while it may seem like it’s drawing the whole process out longer, I think it will be better for me, and for the blog.  Because, really, who wants to read a heavy story every time they come to this blog.  I, for one, do not.

Starting next week we’ll have start the process.  And since today is a holiday, I didn’t really want to start my day off with kind of a bummer post.  I’m too busy doing my spring cleaning.

And, yes.  I’m well aware that it’s September.

Happy Labor Day everyone!!!
