Mental Health 1 year ago Thank You Letter
The month of June was a complete and total whirlwind for me.
My book launched on June 7th and I don’t think I really realized how much it was physically weighing on me to finally birth this project in to the world. It was one thing to write and purge and publish, but to actually have the body of work circulating around the world felt like a rollercoaster of emotions.
Now that I have had a minute to really breathe and absorb everything that has happened, I wanted to take a moment to say thank you. A million thank you’s.
I wrote a little note to you all in the “Acknowledgements” section of the book, but since this blog is where it all began nearly 12 years ago, I find it necessary to also document my gratitude here. I am absolutely humbled that my book was a #1 Best Seller on Amazon. I’m floored and speechless that I was given the opportunity to go on a book tour! Seeing so many of you after so many years apart was exactly what I needed! I missed you guys!
The overwhelming outpour of support and love from this community that we have all built together over the last decade has been outstanding. Every single comment, DM, e-mail and note that you have sent my way has brought me to tears. I feel more connected to you all than ever before. Hearing your own personal stories, triumphs, failures, struggles, and everything in between has reminded me about why I wanted to write this book to begin with. And that was in hopes to reconnect with you all.
I want you to also know how strange it felt not sharing a lot of the stories that were in my book. As I’m sure you can imagine, it is impossible for me to share every single aspect of my life on this blog or on social media. There are a lot of things going on in our lives that I have to keep private for so many reasons, but the stories I chose to include were the ones that I felt would contribute to the overall themes of the book. They were the stories that I hope you will be able to relate to the most.
Without getting too far off topic, I just wanted to say THANK YOU. Thank you for following along in the journey of my life, our life. Thank you for always coming back to check in on this little blog that I started 12 years ago. Thank you for supporting us. Thank you for being here. And most of all, thank you for being open to my words and for trusting me with your time.
Love you all.
