Radical Honesty

I was really honest with myself this week...about living through other people's writings, the huge emotional and mental blocks that keep me from writing and publishing the dozens of children's stories and poetry and music I have scribbled down. Radically honest with myself about finances, organization and other grownup things...and how deeply I am hurting and struggling with other things. Sobbing to my husband as I finally let it out, still silently to myself, Wondering why it is all so heavy, and asking myself, why can't I laugh about it and through it? So now I'm doing all of those things I have been worrying about, drinking some herbal tea to the sound of a summer rain in Texas and feeling much better after a good cry this morning.
