The Tragedy Of Robin Williams’ Suicide:
When Robin Williams ended his life and suffering just a few days ago, I had an epiphany of sorts. Let’s just say a light bulb flashed in my head.
I have been blogging for nearly six years. During that time I have sometimes written about subjects so raw and exposed that I’m sure it made some of you cringe.
But the thing is, I was still tiptoeing around you because I was afraid of your judgment.
I think all bloggers feel that way to an extent.
Being True To Myself:
But I’ve decided that I am not going to tiptoe anymore. I am going to write about all kinds of subjects.
The topic may not pertain to you. But maybe they pertain to someone close to you.
If not, just skip reading my post that day.
My goal since leaving Texas in 2011 was to get myself situated in a good place and then help other women. Knowledge is everything. And even if my knowledge came from getting through a divorce, still it is a road map that might help you.
So I will write about the good stuff and the bad stuff. And hope you understand that this blog will never really fit into a “genre.”
Deviating From My Norm:
I often show decorating and frugal tips and such, but I also have other things to write. But often I don’t because I am uncertain of your reaction.
After I experienced the “moment” in 2011, when I accidentally published a post that was meant for my eyes only, I should have realized I am meant to do more than entertain you with pretty things.
And so I am going to take the lid off instead of having it tremble over the boiling pot.
I am going to try to be myself every single day. Because as the brilliant entertainer Robin Williams has proven, life is too short not to be who you truly are.
