Last week was a pretty intense week. I’ve been preparing to have company over and then tomorrow I will be leaving for Texas for an entire month and a half. This leads me to my topic for this week. Travelling. Last time I went to Texas, I went by bus. It wasn’t a very fun adventure for me. I felt uncomfortable and overly cautious. It didn’t help that I was travelling alone. Add the fact that I wore a mask for eighteen hours straight. Needless to say, I was so grateful to be off the bus. But I digress. Travelling is really interesting to me. There are so many methods to travel and so many reasons to travel. Sometimes we go to see our family. Sometimes we go on vacation. There’s business conferences and conventions. I could go on forever. Sometimes we are only gone for a few days and sometimes we are gone for months. What are your thoughts on travel? How often do you travel?
I don’t really have anything to talk about this week. Other than the fact that I’m so shocked that we are halfway through the month. This is one of my favorite times of the year. It’s Pride month! I have always been interested in Pride month. If I’m being honest, I’ve also been afraid of it as well. I always knew I wasn’t normal. My very first crush was a girl. I was nine years old. I was so ashamed of myself. It took many long years to realize it wasn’t a bad thing to be attracted to the same sex. The shame of waiting so long weighed heavily on me for a long time. I still question a lot of things about myself. I still face a lot of guilt. I’m getting better. Slowly. While I face a battle every day, I’m becoming more and more comfortable in my skin all the time. If anybody is struggling with their identity or who they are attracted to, I’m here for you. Anything you say to me will stay with me. It’s a terrifying feeling and I know I’m not the only one who goes through it. Just remember. You are loved. You are blessed. You are amazing.
