  • They always say it starts with baby steps. Does it? I feel like for every leap forward their is a drastic leap backwards in time. That is to be expected for living, no? Anyway I would never see me spilling the beans on feelings or emotions or ideas or even general thoughts. However, my core was rocked and now my inner softness is open. I am raw and trying to be a new person, a person who for me has not existed before. I am coming here to be open and be on the line truthful. That is rare for me and only happens in my mind. I have great quips that I only ever hear and the new me is about being bare and truthful and in the moment. You need a drastic change when you core has been shaken. At least that is what I tell myself. Nothing ventured, nothing gained.
