When I started out writing this blog back in early January, I had no idea how long I would be at it. Looking back, it doesn’t even seem like it was this year. Then again, pretty much nothing about 2020 has gone as expected. That’s probably the understatement of the week, but I’m going to roll with it for now.
This is my 101st post on this blog and I am still not sure exactly what I’m doing with it. It’s been therapeutic for me to be able to write about my experiences and what’s going on in my head. Transparency is one of my guiding principles for the blog, because I have spent so much of my life play acting, pretending I was doing great when I was anything but.
At the same time, reviewing my previous posts, I see places where I’ve held back or, when it became too much, just stopped sharing altogether (see all of June). Although I have not been a particularly good correspondent, the messages of support and encouragement that I have received through comments to my posts, the Contact page, and on social media have meant the world to me. Thank you for riding with me.
This whole journey is not one that I anticipated, but I am grateful for it. I wonder what post number 202 will look like.
