A very rare occurrence…. I don’t have much to say!
I’m usually a chatter box with endless topics to share. My brain is always churning with a million thoughts & opinions about everything under the sun. I like being in the company of people, chit chatting about any & all issues brought to the table.
There has been something I’ve wanted to share, but deathly afraid to let the cat out of the bag. Yes, I know in the world of psychology, they say the best thing to do is just face the demons, the tough conversations, the stick situations & get it over with because in the end, it probably won’t be as bad as you anticipated.
Why I’m not ready to spill the beans? Judgement! Judgment from others. I assume they will think I’m being a brat, childish, silly, selfish. But, I also know these thoughts have consumed me. My husband sees it on my face (Side note: He can read me like an open book; there is no hiding anything from him.) & obviously, I feel 100% at ease telling him ALL my deepest emotions. But, to share with others is an entirely different ball game.
Besides, how much can we share on social media? I don’t think that much. People don’t want to hear your sob story, troubles, worries or woes; they have enough on their plate as it already is. There’s also the idea you only share when you are happy, feel beautiful & create the impression you don’t have to work, constantly having fun, traveling … it’s not reality.
You certainly don’t want to make people feel uncomfortable or awkward, & of course, that would never be my intention. When I share something personal, I want people to feel they can relate to me. I want them to know someone else out there (i.e. me) shares the same feelings they might have. Maybe feelings they were too scared to take the risk to expose to others. So, should I take the leap of faith & possibly be the spokesperson for others? If by sharing, hopefully, I can give one person a sense of relief they are not alone.
But, for now, I just don’t have the guts. Writing is in progress & maybe I will face my fear in the very near future.
Until then, I will just share a look I wore to the office yesterday.
Note, the sweater & sleeveless puffer jacket. Yes, the weather in Mass is poopy! Spring …. actually what spring has been down right poopy, rainy, cold, grumpy. But, just as we got to the office, the sun pushed through the clouds for a short bit.
This Rag & Bone sweater from Nordstrom is an old, old fav of mine. Probably one of the very few expensive items I own. I love the color, softness, texture & extra long sleeves. This baby is going nowhere! Bag & puffer jacket were sale items from Zara. This jacket has certainly come in handy as of late with the chilly temps. My Vici pleated midi skirt & Keds sneakers are new purchases & I think the blue color is perfect for spring. Ok, I’m ready spring …. you can come out now!!!
This necklace was given as a gift to the bridal party. I was the Matron of Honor, actually called “Best Girl”, for one of my best friend’s wedding & it rarely leaves my neck. Much like the necklace, these Express earrings are a daily go-to.
Thanks for stopping by!
