Happy birthday to me! i’m not gonna lie- 31 was kind of a b***h to the birthday bitch. it’s no secret i experienced some big losses, some deep pain, had moments of true unwieldiness. i try to use those experiences as a way to connect to people who need to be reminded that their humanity is not a character defect but an essential strength. i often need to be reminded of that, especially in an industry where everyone seems to be able to pop out 5 perfect kids while never gaining weight and walking easily in stilettos. i am not and can never be that lady. distance brings clarity though and i’m so excited for 32 to shine a light on the years that came before it and illuminate how i can make them matter. i’m so grateful to the people who loved me through this year, the ones who reminded me that i was valuable to them in any form. i love the folks who follow this account madly and truly- you’ve offered me grace. to a year of health and peace for you. always your girl, ld
p.s. sorry mom! it’s all about me!
