So I started writing my book this evening. I have only 1000 words under my belt but I am already realizing what an emotional process this is going to be. As I recount times in my life that were hard, I suddenly feel those emotions rushing over me again. However, things are different today than they were back than. I’m in a better place in my life to be facing these trying times. I feel like I am approaching this with a new sense of clarity that will allow me to process things differently. Maybe now I will understand more, or, maybe even forgive. I’m definitely not there yet, but I’m hopeful for where this process will bring me.
