This past weekend has been my first as an out and open DI Mom. I have delved into the world of social networking with a blog, a Facebook page and a twitter account. I am slowly navigating my way around and blabbing away about my story. I was feeling amazing and empowered over the past 3 days. I felt like I could not be stopped, as if the driving force behind me was powered by a million horses…..and then came this morning. I woke up in a panic, had I just made a horrible mistake? Letting anyone who wishes to know in on our little family dynamic? I felt sick to my stomach all morning, and I went through the day with my head in a fog thinking about my choices and decisions. Then all the babes fell asleep and I was finally able to sit quietly with my thoughts and rethink why I had made this leap into the public forum, and all the conviction that I felt when I started this 3 days ago came hammering down on me like a tidal wave. I am doing the right thing, I am getting this done, I am being myself and for the first time in my life I am not letting fear conquer me. Fingers crossed!!!!!
