I feel like I have been in secluded hibernation for the past three and a half years.
Thoughtful and deliberate. And extremely necessary. But summer is finally here. K, well… actually we are now well and truly into summer here in the Southern Hemisphere – blogs take a lot longer to put together than I initially realised!! ;0
“There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you…”
I wear my heart completely and utterly on my sleeve. I don’t quite know how to be any other way. This gets me in trouble often, not gonna lie. 😉 But it’s who I am and I have learned to roll with it. I do however pity my darling friends who have to journey with me through the extreme and vast emotions I drag them along on!! I love you, I love you, I love you!!!
A friend of mine recently came up with this epic quote, “Artistic and dork are interchangeable”. I couldn’t agree more. Dare I add – “Artistic and draaaamaaaatic are interchangeable”. I hopelessly and forever will fall into this category.
A few weeks after my husband left me, I was with a friend and was crying hot tears and snot bubbles, and he said to me, “Yes, but Re, think of all the people you will be able to help now that you are on this journey!”
And I was like, “(enter expletive) the people!!!! I DON’T CARE about helping any people!! I DO NOT wanna be walking through this (expletive) journey!!!!!”
Fast forward three and a half years.
K so maybe I do wanna help out a little…if I can…(enter sheepish smile;)
I’m raw and real and vulnerable. I most definitely get it wrong at times. I make mistakes and am stumbling through this new life.
But that’s just it:
I wanna share my story with you. The highs and the lows. This journey is quite simply put- C.R.A.Z.Y.
If my honesty and vulnerability can in some way help you to experience freedom, whether through the connection of relating, understanding or through the connection of sheer hilarity, then it makes this journey for me precious and worthwhile.
And thus it has begun…
