Another year is gone, and it’s been one of the best so far. The fact that I can write that with full conviction is so strange that I have to revisit the thought. Don’t get me wrong, this year has been a real bitch as well, but which year isn’t?
The reason why I have stopped publishing and writing? Well, stuff changed. Namely, I found out that I was pregnant. As planned as it was, as pregnant as I am (I’m supposed to give birth in 10 days), I still have a hard time accepting this life-changing fact.
One thing I accepted almost immediately was that my life as I knew it was something I had to say goodbye to. That old adage “you only have one life – live it to the fullest” is bullshit. We lead many lives and have many different identities and selves. It’s just a matter of choice or happenstance. Being fully aware that one life and one self are soon to come to an end, I did my best to live that one life and that self to the fullest.
Regardless of the new reality that will take shape in 2019, I’m sure I’m gonna need my Cheap Thrills and Guilty Pleasures more than ever. So, stay tuned I guess. I will.
