the right thing

Do you remember being 10 and some adult telling you that "the right thing and the hard thing are often the same thing" ? Maybe I've lived a weird life, but the right thing isn't usually that difficult, right? Like, maybe not the most fun or whatever, but not usually excruciatingly hard.

Well, that changed this week.

I am not comfortable sharing details, and I promise to post a ton of cute photos from our vaca last month, but right now, my heart is heavy. I did a thing that was right AND really hard, and I don't know what will come of it.

If you find yourself in this place, just do it. Take the plunge. Do the right thing. Even now, unaware of what any consequences might be, I feel so relieved. I did the right thing and now I can sleep a little more easily.

Also, if you notice a post in complete opposition to this one in a few weeks' time, ignore it, k? Trust me. Worth it.
