Today I am posting over at Mommypants.
I have been nervous about this day since the moment the topic of my post found its way into my head.
I emailed the amazing Cheryl with two options, a safe one and a not-so-safe one, and she helped me find the courage to choose the latter and not just tell my story, but relive my story deeply through words.
I needed to write about something, a part of my life that I never share, never discuss, and tend to just completely ignore when people give me a questioning glance.
So as I type this, a short time before I share another piece of myself with people who I know and many people I do not, I wonder what in the world I am doing.
I have always been a private person so why, when I write, can I share just about anything?
I can share because every time I do someone out there, even if it is just one person, nods in I-have-been-there-too agreement.
Every time I share more, and am afraid to hit “publish,” every time I am brutally honest, my words fall into the open arms of wonderful people who respect them and acknowledge them and support me that much more.
So as I release one more piece of myself into the blogosphere I am a bit at a loss for words.
All I have to say is thank you to the amazingly courageous women I have met in this blogging world who have already shared so much of their lives and inspired me to share one more piece of mine.
And thank you to everyone who visits me here and takes such care of my words.
One more thing…
Mwwwwaaaaahhhhhhhh, Ms. Ashlyn.
My life is this life because of you.
You can visit me here at Mommypants today.
