Sunday Confessions 44, 45, 46, & 47Tuesday, November 22, 2016
I confess: I'm behind on EVERYTHING - life, business, blogging, housewifery - you name it, I'm behind. Which I'm sure you can tell from my absence from the interwebs.
I confess: I haven't even turned on my computer in over a week and I don't want to think about my email inbox.
I confess: It's felt equal parts good and bad to not be writing. The more I don't write, the easier it is for me to keep not writing. I even missed this month's Houston Bloggers meeting because I'm just not feeling bloggy at all.
I confess: I don't think it's a matter of needing more time - I think I just need to learn how to manage my time. I'm so inefficient.
I confess: I'm embarrassed and ashamed to be an American right now.
I confess: I'm also incredibly terrified for the worst case scenarios we're facing as a nation (and if you don't think bad shit is going to happen in the coming years, just look at Germany's history - I swear I see it barreling towards us like a freight train).
I confess: The older I get, the more politically aware and active I become, but I know I could do so much more. I feel guilty that I didn't do more during this election.
I confess: I now have the idea in my head that I should run for office so I can actually affect some change.
I confess: But I wonder if that's just a pipe dream or something I could actually do - after all, I do have pink hair, piercings, and tattoos - but if a pumpkin can get elected, surely I could, too.
I confess: I'm equally torn in two directions - I have the overwhelming desire to get the fuck out of this country, yet I feel like this is my country and I need to stay and fight for what I believe in.
I confess: I'm also already scared to fight too loudly and bring attention to my family that could negatively affect our being alive.
I confess: Damn, it feels good to write again.
