Halloween Digiscrapped & Why I Overshare

I digiscrapped Halloween:

You can see all of my pages here.

I also had a really cruddy start to my day, (actually woken up by my phone vibrating an hour before my alarm was set to go off, tired but couldn't fall back asleep, had a headache, a mess with Annelise, late breakfast, etc.) but I actually refused to let it ruin everything. I've always been a big wallower, so I'm working very hard to get over that. I didn't *WANT* to focus on the positives, but I tried so hard and shook free of my irritation. :-) Woohoo!

I read this below, and it perfectly articulated WHY I am such an oversharer, an open book, and why I am blogging:

"I hadn't realized how much she needed to hear my worries to normalize her own. I thought my stress was obvious, but from her vantage point my life seemed to be a pretty package, wrapped in a perfect family. By being vulnerable and sharing the details of my life I was able to give her the same gift of perspective she had been giving me."

The heartfelt counsel of a friend is as sweet as perfume and incense.
~ Proverbs 27:9, NLT

I'm so glad y'all are here!

  2. I actually read it in a MOPS Mom-E-Mail over the summer, and it was so "me" that I copied & saved it in a little thoughts file I have. :-)
