Many of you know I’ve been rather busy. Some of you know I’ve been a bit depressed. And unfortunately, several of you saw a blog post I shared last week that I’m not proud of. I took it down, it’s long gone, and you will not see it again.
I wrote it in the heat of the moment, when the straw broke this camel’s back. It was a culmination of things: the stress of Listen To Your Mother : Kansas City, family issues, depression, and failing to communicate in a proper manner.
What I did was a prime example of how not to blog. I let you down and I let myself down. I hurt people, and I am sorry.
With the help of an excellent therapist and some new medication, I’m turning things around. I’m a firm believer in talking about problems and learning how to deal with them. Last week I learned that my blog is not the place to discuss certain private matters.
Moving forward, you can expect me to continue to share my vulnerable self with you; that will never change. However, I’ll refrain from exposing anyone else. I need to instead confront problems head on, at the source. So that’s coming, but it won’t be broadcast here in gory detail.
In other news, a bigger post is on the way, but I wanted to assure you that I am back. Listen To Your Mother was a huge success in Kansas City, especially for it being the inaugural show here. I, along with 13 other phenomenal women, took the stage and shared our stories with the audience. We made them laugh, we made them cry, and my mother was there in the audience—front row! It was an honor to represent Ann Imig and I hope we’ll be able to bring LTYM back in 2014.
