I meant to write this post last week. Just like we meant to take down the Christmas tree. At least we don't turn on the lights anymore. It WILL come down this weekend. For sure.
I want to take a moment to say thank you for the wonderful and kind comments I received on my blog post What A Decade It's Been. First, let me back up and say thanks for reading my blog at all. A lot of you commented on how honest and real that post was. That it's brave to just put it all out there. Me strong? I never felt that way. Ever. But thank you so much for saying so and making me realize that maybe I am. I left some things out of course, but it's the general gist of that period in my life. At the time I would have been way to embarrassed to discuss what I was going through but now that it's behind me I'm not afraid. I'm not that person anymore. Like it or not it's a part of me and what got me to where I am today. Not exactly my proudest moments but it happened and I AM proud that I managed to overcome it.
For so long I believed that I didn't deserve happiness. I thought it was something that only smiled upon others but that I should never expect it for myself. The last two years have proved that theory all wrong. The majority of the decade was pretty miserable but things really did turn around for me. I am just so darn thrilled that things are different now. It's my story and it just felt right that I share it on my blog, ugly details and all.
