When I wrote here, I was newlywed, newly medically insured, and figuring out if I was an adult yet.
Then suddenly, I could round my age up to 30, and lived in a 425$ a month apartment in rural Nebraska with brown and yellow floral carpet, and the husband I put through college worked nights in a popcorn factory. It would have been funny if it didn't feel so pathetic to live it.
That’s when I stopped writing. I lost confidence in what I have to say. Who should hear me? Who needs what I have? I didn’t think anyone did. I lost my voice.
Voices are important. Your voice is important. We all need to hear it, to have your perspective to add to our own. We need to hear each other, more individuals, standing bright and forward from the stereotype we can be reduced to.
So I'm making a fresh start as an actual, humbled, not remotely more mature adult at a new site.
I hope you'll join me again! First post goes up this week and you can sign up for an alert at www.laurenpluslife.com
