And now for something completely different
I have never been one to have skeletons in my closet, they’ve always pretty much walked around with me wearing, “Hello, my name is Amanda’s’ Skeleton” labels (in pretty awful handwriting, but hey – it’s hard to write with a bony finger).
When I’m out, they’re waving at passersby, stopping to chat with people in the grocery store … you get the picture. I’m not exactly a closed book.
What started to happen though, is that while I wanted my story out there – I felt like I was toeing an odd line telling people to choose to be happy while I’m recounting some ugly facts from my past.
A Couple of my posts were bordering on maudlin. (Nooooooooo!)
The whole point of this blog was to be honest and fun and give me an outlet for creativity. AND hopefully to reach someone with a similar story and show them how amazing life can be.
I’m no Maya Angelou or Oprah, but I know I’ve done something right because I have done a spiritual, emotional and physical 180.
I think people are more likely to believe in happy when they see happy. And I am happy.
So! Since I’m happy and I know it, think I’ll clap my blog hands.
