today’s lesson: i’m not martha stewart, and that’s okay.
you know what? i’m not martha stewart. and that’s okay.
it’s even okay when my turn to host sunday night dinner and father’s day coincide. it’s okay even then.
i’ll just come right out and say it: i’ve been battling depression since 2009.
and i’ve had higher than normal levels of anxiety all my life.
yes, my life is great most of the time. and it looks even better than that online! but living with depression and anxiety is unfortunately–and undeniably–a huge part of my journey. so, i started to feel dishonest and even a bit slimy at hiding it so well.
the truth is, i am more organized and productive and ambitious and mindful and creative than a lot of people i know. at the same time though, i’m often a nervous wreck and a puddle of tears that breaks down at the mere thought of deciding what to have for breakfast or what shoes match this dress.
