When Robin Williams ended his life and suffering just a few days ago, I had an epiphany of sorts. Let's just say a light bulb flashed in my head.
I have been blogging for nearly six years. During that time I have sometimes written about subjects so raw and exposed that I'm sure it made some of you cringe.
But the thing is, I was still tiptoeing around you. I was afraid of your judgment.
I think all bloggers feel that way to an extent.
I am not going to tiptoe anymore.
I often show decorating and frugal tips and such, but I also have other things to write, but often don't because I am uncertain of your reaction.
After I experienced the "moment" in 2011, when I accidentally published a post that was meant for my eyes only, I should have realized I am meant to do more than entertain you with pretty things.
And so I am going to take the lid off instead of having it tremble over the boiling pot.
I am going to try to be myself every single day. Because as the brilliant entertainer Robin Williams proved, life is too short not to be who you truly are.
