Feeling emotionally NAKED
These past few posts have made me feel NAKED. Vulnerable in a way I have fought tooth and nail to avoid. It has made me question my “why” for doing this, for writing and sharing about my life with all of you out there in the universe. And, thanks to a sorority sister (thank you, Ingrid!!) who was kind enough to leave this comment, I have found my answer.
“Omg! Bonnie you are bad ass!!! I am so moved by your post. I’m so sorry that you have endured much pain but look at you now girl! You are killing it and moving forward stronger than ever! That to me is simply bad ass! . Time to write a book!”
SHE SAID I WAS BAD ASS. Did you read that??? I have never been referred to as a Bad Ass. Being referred to in this way makes me think my words have some power beyond me. Maybe they are finding their way to women who need to hear them.
In addition to this OG Bad Ass woman leaving me this message, I also had a couple of private messages thanking me for sharing because they could relate and found inspiration in my words, and asked me to continue to share.
This is why I am sharing with such vulnerability.
I want to write for the women who are where I was and for those who can find inspiration in my journey. What good will come if I keep my peace and do not share my hard learned lessons?
I want everyone to see that there is light, there is hope, and we can live from a place of love and not anger. I just want some good to come from my growing pains, ya know?
