So it’s obvious that last night was rough. One of the things I like to do when I get in that state of mind is make a change. It can be anything from adding a sticker to the cover of a notebook to rearranging my CDs … or even coloring my hair blue.
I’m not sure how long this will last; I’m already considering a bluish-black as my next color choice. But for the moment I’ve decided I don’t mind standing out and am happy to be the girl in blue. The downside to doing this is that my tub still looks like I murdered several smurfs. There is a LOT of scrubbing in my future. Sigh.
On a more serious note, thank you for reading last night’s post and for liking/commenting. I know it isn’t easy to find a way to respond to a post like that and I am so appreciative of the bravery you showed in doing so. You also taught me something, which is that it’s okay to express my emotions, even when they aren’t easy. I’ve decided that my philosophy for the rest of this holiday season is to express, not repress. This year, I’m going to do something new: I’m going to let myself feel through the Christmas and New Year’s holidays. I’m going to tell myself that I can handle it and see how it all shakes out.
Welcome to December!
