(I promise to return to St. Petersburg in a couple of days...but first there are other things to talk about!)
First, we tell ourselves lies all the time. We try to convince ourselves that we're happy when we're not or that we like things that we don't. Often we tell ourselves these lies so that we can fit in or survive or get by.
You know the lie I told myself for years? That I loved the variety of weather that I experienced in the places I lived. Tornadoes, hurricanes, rocking thunderstorms. They brought excitement and variety to life. You were a survivor and it was cool! That if I lived someplace like California or Hawaii I'd get bored with the weather. All that sunshine would surely make one crazy right?
SO WRONG. Lies, I tell you!
Beautiful weather, sunshiny days, blue blue skies? They make my soul happy.
Plus, I get to see sunsets like this on top of it? Man, I'm in heaven!
Other news...I'm about to embark on a big step of recovery. I'm "getting out there" y'all. I don't want to share too much information about this because I don't know the person well enough to know how they'd feel to know that they might be part of a blog...but I'm getting out there and meeting people and talking to boys...and I'm so excited and nervous and really unbelievably happy.
