October holds the richness required to dive deep.
Reaching out for support does not come naturally or easily to me. There is such pressure on women in general, moms in particular, to hold it together & take care of others beyond the limits of healthy capacity, no matter what.
A crossroads feels like an opportunity in the best light. A crisis in the worst. One wrong move and it all falls apart.
I cannot remember the last time I went out alone purely for the enjoyment of my own company. So I took myself on a date.
