Wednesday was a rough day for me. Not just because I had some things to do in the world I was not looking forward to, but because so many of you were hurting. I share lots of things with you guys, way more than I should at times but I don’t share everything. Today was a day I struggled to blog at all. I’m fine, there was just a lot of shit going on with me and a lot of shit that my commenters shared with me. I know a like to fuck with all the “astrology whackadoodles” but it truly did seem like the star aligned to test many of us today. I don’t think I have ever had so many cries for help in one day.
Things can be overwhelming. Sometimes we just feel like we can’t take anymore. That is just part of the reason I started the Daily Tea. So we can vent. And I want you to vent. I do.
That said, I was hoping that we could just take a pause in all the sadness just for today. While it is uplifting at times to hear about how so many of you are brave and overcoming such major obstacles, the blog seems to have taken a dark turn during the wake of the Baltimore situation. So people can choose not to read that post, but many times people need this post for lightheartedness.
No seriously LISTEN TO IT AGAIN
No one has done anything wrong and you have all done exactly the right thing on the Daily tea. I posted a traumatic even myself today, albeit nothing in comparison to what you guys deal with every day. But if it is okay, just for today… or maybe for a few days can we celebrate spring, or share something good, or tell a silly story?
I’m not asking just for myself, but for my dear friends here who need to be uplifted with great stories and a maybe an unspoken/typed prayer.
Again, this IS the place to vent and share your issues. But today seemed to be so difficult for so many of you, who reached out to me privately, as you are all always welcome to do, I feel we need some healing vibes. So many are looking for reasons to continue to go on. It’s starting to reach critical mass. I’m terribly worried about so many of my friends here. I want you all to know we are all in this together. We are all doing the best we can. We have formed a community. And I can’t afford to lose any of you. Because I need you as much as some of you need me.
So let’s spend the day being uplifting. Let’s talk about how we get sometimes as I call it are “in the hole.” Let’s just for today, and just in these comments share things meant to uplift those of us who are struggling. Because, many of us are. And let’s not do it with a preamble of our own issues (again that is why this post exists I am just asking for a time out for today).
Let’s just try to motivate each other for at least one day. I’d greatly appreciated it. One of my favorite people, at least used to have this song as her ringtone when I had phones that fucking worked. I’m going to make it the “photo” for today.
I look forward to some happy stories. I apologize for the blog getting so dark. I did not mean to push anyone further in the hole. I know firsthand how hard it is to crawl out. OTOH I will always post what I think is relative to this blog and sometimes bad shit happens.
