Are you judgy?
May 10, 2017

“Should” is such a loaded word, isn’t it? It’s the fastest way to get an eyebrow raised around here, put it that way. I used to tell myself -- with the help of lots of other people -- I shouldn’t feel this way or that.

Can you imagine a bigger waste of time?

It didn’t matter whether I should’ve felt a certain way. I did. Admitting that sooner could’ve saved me a lot of time. I should’ve realized it sooner, eh?

But I didn’t. Now what?

Well, just as Katie’s fond of saying she’s becoming “unapologetically herself” -- as if she’s ever not been! -- I’m becoming almost defiantly myself. Making up for lost time, maybe. I can imagine being the old woman who tells you exactly how she feels without adding any disclaimers to soften the sentiment.

Should be interesting!
