Truth Teller

I am a fairly positive gal - at least that’s what I am told.


For the first time in my life, I am sharing honest, gritty, real stories on a separate platform - one that is dedicated to words only called Substack, and I freaking love it. I think we can all agree that social media is way of staying connected - but there is a disconnect from authenticity.


Take this picture of my face for example. I feel confident enough to share it because I don't look terrible (vanity speaking) but also I have some yogurt collected in a sort of paste in the corners of my mouth that I failed to wipe properly with a napkin.  By the same token, I am applauding for the college your kid got into, but actually I am more interested in how they rebounded from the rejection of their dream school. Does that make me a monster?


When I share honestly about let's say, a mental health crisis or my #metoo story, I am voluntarily wading into uncertain waters. But I am choosing it because I KNOW I am not the only one. I had fellow readers reach out to me yesterday saying, "I am praying for you." And even though this situation is currently at baseline, I was like, "Ah, thank you" The same thing occurred after sharing my #metoo story, fellow sisters responding to say, "Me too."


Talk about courage.


I want to share true things, memories that I have stored away not so neatly in boxes, shit I have walked through as a mother that has rebirthed and changed me on a soul level. I also want to share stupid fun stuff, because that's me. My hope is that other weirdo, truth telling friends will show up.


But if I am too honest, and too weird, and that makes folks too uncomfortable, that's also okay.


I AM HERE TO HEAL AND PARTY. Who's with me?
