I don’t think I’m being dramatic when I say, this school year has been unlike any we’ve had before. There has been no normal. There has been no groove. It’s also not an exaggeration to say the last four months have been some of the hardest of my life. They’ve drained me emotionally, physically, creatively, and even spiritually. On bad days I was depressed; on good days I just felt spent.
Today, I woke up and for the first time in awhile I felt truly alive. I feel like we survived and made it to the other side. It’s not a closed chapter, of course. There’s still more healing and likely sadness to come, but I feel ready to take it on. Writing has always been a way for me to work through my emotions and figure things out and right now I have a lot I need to write about as I sift through everything that happened and figure out where to go from here. I’m going to be posting a lot of this writing to the blog and would love to have you read along as my writing trickles out (or floods, you never can predict the writing process). I also have a lot of posts to get up about the goings on of our lives (March is always a crazy, busy month for us) so the blog won’t be just deep, brooding posts. I hope you’ll stick around. ♥ Until the next post.
PS – I’ll be sharing links to all my posts, but if you want reliable updates (I’m looking at you Facebook) you might want to subscribe to the blog to get email updates (check out the sidebar) or add the blog to Feedly or whatever feed reader you use.
