— UPDATED WITH LINK BELOW —
Today’s post should, God-willing, be up on the Huffington Post site later today. I submitted it to their editorial staff on Saturday morning. It’s been sitting in the queue ever since.
I’m not so good at waiting. I’m even worse at ceding control of my writing. But this needed a bigger platform than the one that I have here at Diary.
It is a big post. Actually, it’s a really big post. It’s a post that has had my stomach in knots since the moment that I hit ‘Submit’. Not because I have any shame in what I wrote, but simply because I fear the way it will be received. But it’s truth. It’s my truth. And truth is worth risk.
I’m not sure how else to preface it, so I’ll leave it at this ..
I call out hypocrisy when I see it. It’s what I do. And exempting myself from that would be the biggest hypocrisy of all. So that is essentially what I have done – called myself out for not living what I believe, and then doing what I could to make that right.
I hope that when it comes out you will read it gently, that you will remember the person that you know that I am as you do, and that you will keep an open mind — and, more importantly, an open heart — throughout.
Please feel free to subscribe to my Huff Po blog HERE to receive notification when it’s published, or simply check back here later today.
Thank you, my friends. For everything.
