I have been posting to this account daily for almost three months. Every day, when I sit down to create, I have been asking myself, “What is something true that I can share?” Lately, I’ve sometimes been following up with, “And what is even more true than that?” This is mostly a necessity; I need the congruence between my internal and external life, but it helps to get some validation. Last night, I got a dose of that when I listed to @theunspokenpodcast hosted by @milesadcox and @ruthielindsey. In a recent episode, @bymariandrew said, “People relate to anyone who’s honest. Anyone.” So here I am.
