In the beginning, there was emptiness. Not sadness or depression, not anger, but also, not happiness, joy, or calm. There was just an unexplainable heaviness. Occasionally, there was a bout of uncontrollable laughter or an agoraphobia attack, but the most common feeling was emptiness.
So why then, is my blog titled The Full Glass if I am talking about emptiness? Because I want to share with you my journey from feeling like an empty void, to feeling like my soul is so full, its overflowing. I’ve learned a lot about self-care and I want to share with you the tools I use when I feel lost.
I have a couple of disclaimers to add. The first is that I am not a doctor or trained counselor. In fact, the only school I can officially claim as my alma mater, is the school of hard knocks. I am not aiming to diagnose or cure any ailment, but rather to share my personal story and what has worked for me. The second disclaimer is I will be talking about spirituality and religion. I claim a faith and I respect everybody else’s right to claim their faith. I believe we all have the same destination and questions, just different paths to get there. When I use God, it’s my way of saying God, Holy Spirit, Universe, or Higher Power. I am in no way trying to sway anyone’s beliefs because I feel they are very personal.
What is in store for this blog? I will mostly focus on my relationship with myself, but I will also add my experiences with relationships, health, and even some beauty tips and tricks. Take what is useful, ignore what is not. All I ask is for interactions to be respectful. I want my place to be one of love, acceptance and fun!
I am so excited to get started!
