Life is Hard.

Life is Hard
So uh, hi. Hello. It’s been …. awhile. Three months. Ouch.

I kept meaning to update. I was still uploading my hysterectomy recovery videos to YouTube and I had every intention of taking those videos and posting them to the blog. To be honest though, even that took more energy than I had to give.

Long story short, YouTube, this blog, and basically anything social media related…  became SO unimportant. On a list of priorities, those were at the very bottom.

I was finally able to sit down and film a video about what all has happened in our lives, how I have coped, and some of what I am doing to move forward and heal my heart. I was planning on sharing more of my heart on the blog but I think this video does a pretty thorough job of breaking it all down.

I hope that as I continue to heal and find peace that I am able to share more of my journey with you. I hope that through it all I am able to discover teachable moments that can help others. But for now, I have to focus on me, my heart, my mental health, and being the best mother, wife, and friend I can be.

Thank you for giving me a platform to share my journey; my ups and my downs. My triumphs and struggles. While this video was the hardest I have ever filmed, it was also oddly comforting to reveal some of the chaotic thoughts in my brain. Hearing that I am not alone in these feelings and that people appreciate these raw, honest conversations has been eye opening and helpful in my healing. So thank you. Truly.

Thank you, thank you, thank you.

xo, tara

    […] I know what you’re thinking upon reading the title of this post – duh, trauma will make any person more empathetic. I get it. It seems like such an obvious revelation, but it wasn’t so obvious to me. In fact, it didn’t hit me until I was 7 months out from my traumatic experience. […]
