Good morning everyone! I'm up at 6:00AM because I'm going to see the Wendy Williams show today! I thought I'd write a quick blog post while I drink my coffee and wait for my hair to dry, reflecting a little bit on yesterday's post. First, I just wanted to say thanks for everyone's thoughtful comments. Here's something I've been thinking about since I wrote it: you know that thing called fear? I'm pretty sure living life full of it has never done anyone any good. It's a really easy place to get to really fast and then get paralyzed in for a long time. I'm afraid of climate change, and a ton of other things too. But I'm pretty sure that making huge life decisions based on those fears is not the way to live a life.
So that's where I'm at right now. Still scared about a lot of things. Still very much wanting to be honest and open about those fears, but trying not to connect them to how I choose to live my life.
Fear should be a healthy response to danger, but living in it, can cause danger in yourself.
I've always been a relatively high strung person. (Please see number 19) And my sensitivity brings out a lot of qualities that I like about myself- the anxiety and fear part though, not so much. I am aware that my brain goes to these places and I am making a conscious effort to stop it. Or at least recognize when it's happening and then blog about it to make myself feel better :)
I might turn this topic into a longer post in the future, but right now I have a daytime talk show taping to get to! I'll be posting pics from the taping to Instagram, so follow along if you want!
