30 Days of Truth | Day 27

What’s the best thing going for you right now?

Questions like this always trigger an opening-of-the-flood-gates reaction with me. One thing pops into my mind and then an avalanche of others follow. However, throughout my 30 Days, I've learned that when I read the day's question, generally the first thing on my mind is the answer. And that was the case with My Vicarious Life.

I love MVL. Sometimes, just coming to my site makes me smile because it's where I'm constantly learning more about myself and feeling more secure, appreciating my nuances and where I've found you. I can't stop gushing {as I have so many times in earlier posts} that my blog gave me ME ... easily the very best thing going for me right now. Two of my friends had been encouraging me to blog for a while before I began, but I didn't know what I would talk about and was sure that no one was interested. Even when I started, I considered it a mere social experiment. I didn't expect it to be anything involved; Little did I know it would be my coming out. And the timing for me, at 35, was perfect. I realize now that this was the very organic beginning of everything  my voice, above all. Like a macro version of these days of truth, MVL on the whole is an unadulterated experience with me. I am myself here and have worked out so much through my writing that I am essentially comfortable just being myself now everywhere. Wow.

    Ms. Katrice, if you don't PREACH! I feel the same exact way about my blog and thank God for it every day. Isn't it funny how something that started out so small ended up a huge part of your life?

  3. It really is amazing. It's like continual reconciliation.
