A little revelation

I woke up this morning with the beginnings of hope budding in my heart. I felt lighter, and though still anxious about the morning push of getting boys to school, I felt markedly different from yesterday.

I felt better rested, for one thing! But I also felt more myself. Closer to whatever it is that makes me, me.

I realized I need to write. I need to write about my emotions to fully process them, whether I write publicly or privately. When I don't write, I feel like I'm only half-living. And not just emotions. For me to understand an event, I have to frame it with words somehow.

So I'm going to write more. I know I've said this before, and haven't followed through. I know I might not even follow through this time! (haha) But just writing this down is beyond comforting, and feels like home.

So true.

AND, you need to call your sister. Did you notice how that also coincided with feeling a little more normal? :D

(It's a given that I get the boost I need TOO when you call me!)

Amen to what Abby said. ;)
I feel similar about writing (but I don't think it mean QUITE the same thing to me as it does to you). Anyway, I understand.
And I'm excited you'll write more, because I always love reading what you've written. Always!

I feel you my soul sister.
