I started a slice for today, but as the words flowed onto the page, I realized that I wasn’t ready to share them. I started thinking about this piece while driving and almost stopped in a parking lot to record my thoughts. I wasn’t too far from home, so I tried to hold on to the ideas popping around in my brain until I pulled up in my driveway. Once I had shifted into park, I grabbed my phone, opened a new blog post, and started to record my words. I sat there for a few minutes before I was assured that the idea wasn’t going to disappear.
I sat down later to write more and as I did, I realized that I wasn’t ready to share the words. My emotions were still a little raw and the post revealed more than I wanted to share. I might never share that post and that’s okay. Getting the words out and making sense of things mattered the most.
