Silence is golden.

My absence in writing here has been somewhat intentional.

I can’t say it is 100% intentional because I didn’t consciously say, “I’m not going to write for a while.” It just happened and then something started happening and I am now opting to keep a lid on it.

Why? Because I have discovered that I am completely and absolutely influenced by the opinions of others. I have always been this way but until recently didn’t realize how easily it is for someone, typically people I hold in high esteem, to sway me one way or the other about incredibly personal things. I assume they know me or know what my heart wants or what is best for Benjamin and I, when in reality, I am the only one with those answers.

It is my responsibility to take the opinions of others with a grain of salt, but I don’t. Their words follow me and echo in my mind until I don’t know who or what I want anymore. You, my readers, are in the lot of those whose opinion I care so deeply about and until I can stand firmly on my own two feet I have to keep anything you may have an influential opinion about to myself.

Make sense?


I hope so and as soon as I can, I will let you in on what is happening.

And, I did hear some mention on my Facebook page that some of you have seen and have written in the Manifestos! So exciting and I can’t wait until they finally circle back to me so I can read your words. You are all so amazing and (for the record) your opinions, invariably, are the most accurate, unbiased and positive ones I have in my life.
