I have a lot of thoughts chasing each other around my head, yet I rarely express them to anyone besides my husband, and now my son. But I am becoming bolder, speaking up - speaking out. I have to say, after years of being a quiet little mouse, this feels good!
I still hum and haw over what I write to others, wondering how it will be taken, but ultimately I've been hitting enter, send, submit, or whatever much more often, instead of just letting it go. I have been through a lot in the last few years, so if it can help someone, or open up a new point of view, I like that. It makes me feel like I might be a few feet closer to the other side, closer to wherever it is I'm going.
