It’s Friday and it’s March and spring has sprung in my soul. It’s my 200th post on this blog and almost 1 year to the day that I first started ‘MyNewFavoriteDay.’ The funny thing is that it feels like different lifetime ago from when I first hit publish, someone else’s lifetime.
A year ago, I was battling Monsters. Monsters I did not know how to combat. They hid everywhere, around every corner. Everything was crumbling, I was crumbling. Question by question, answer by answer by strength, my resolve and my glue were slowly snapping apart.
I had always been strong, mature, willful, but as the trauma of what had happened and E’s lack of progress hung on my entire self like a wrecking ball pinning me into isolation, I felt trapped inside of my own self. And then, last March, as I sat in my living room I knew it was time. I had to do something. I had to process somehow or it was all going to crumble down. In a dramatic way that would like result in me ending up in the hospital which was not an option, and so as I sat on the couch, my option came to me….
Today I am so delighted to be guest posting over at Deborah from “The Monster in Your Closet.” You may remember my very first “MyNewFavoriteWeek’ly Inspiration” series post was an interview with her. To me she has fought her own unseen battles and she like all of us has fought, for her family, and for herself. After all she has endured, she has a series called “FTIAT” (For this I am Thankful) and I am honored to share what I am grateful for today. This blog and you!
It is not an exaggeration to say that ‘Mynewfavoriteday’ saved me, you all saved me. Had all of this not happened, I don’t know where we would be and I don’t want to wander down that path. I hope you will join me at ‘The Monster in Your Closet” as a big thank you to all of you and your kindness that helped save my family.
