It may be warm in Austin today, but if it’s chilly where you live, you can still try this outfit with fleece lined tights + a big coat.
I’ve started this post about a dozen times, but I just can’t figure out how to put a bear hug into words.
To each and every one of you who joined the conversation on Friday’s post:
Your words on Friday taught me something:
It doesn’t matter if it’s an email to a coworker, a text to a friend, or a comment on a blog — eventually our words reach a living, breathing human being.
Words are strangely powerful. They can make people feel understood — which, I think, is quite possibly the most precious gift we can ever give or receive.
Can you remember a time when you felt wholly understood? You shared something deeply significant … and someone reflected it right back to you, like, “Hey … I get you.” You felt seen. You felt safe. It’s a beautiful thing.
You did that for me on Friday.
I wasn’t sure how Friday’s post would go over. I was resolved … but deep down I was nervous to share my true thoughts.
But you got it. You reflected it right back to me.
And It moved me. Just ask my husband. I was all kinds of emotional on Friday.
I think — especially on the internet — that it’s easy to forget the power of our words. Like maybe they don’t matter that much. Like no one is really paying attention. So does it really matter what we say?
It does. To the human being on the other side of the screen, it matters every time.
