If you’re new to this blog (and pretty much everybody is because I’m just now telling people about it!) and you go back several posts, you’ll see that there’s a gap of about six months between posts. I tried telling my story back then, but I wasn’t ready yet. I just wasn’t ready.
But I’ve done a lot of work on myself recently, and while I’m still learning and growing, I’m in a much better place now than I was back in January when I stopped blogging. I still have bad days, but they don’t happen nearly as much as they used to. I spent my time reading and listening to podcasts, and paying attention to things that filled me up.
So now I’m ready to talk.
Don’t think that means I am on the other side, though, because I’m not. The future is still so uncertain for our family. But is it ever predictable for anyone? That’s the thing about life; not a single human being knows what will happen.
What’s different now is that I’m finally ready to talk about it. It being the good, the bad, and the ugly. When I wonder how much to share and how much truth people really want to hear, I think of this quote from Lysa TerKeurst:
“I also know there’s someone else in the world who would drown in their own tears if not for seeing yours. And when you make one other human simply see they aren’t alone, you make the world a better place.”
That quote is why I’m doing a podcast. I hope this show gives you comfort like a warm hug from an old friend. I want you to know that you are not alone.
