Hello! Welcome to my new blog. You can call me “Tegan”. I will be using this page to get out my snarky thoughts, and use this as a way to reminisce and get out a little bit of self-therapy. I will be using aliases for the moment, until I see fit to do otherwise.
What You Should Know
I am kind of a mess, at all times. I like to think I have my shit (mostly) together, but honestly…I’m just winging everything. And there’s absolutely nothing wrong with that. Our society places so much emphasis on perfection (if you’re a woman, at least) that there’s a stigma around talking about NOT having it all together. But I say forget that. So many people are hard on themselves because they feel they’re not doing a good job, or they don’t know how to ask for help. Start talking about your struggles, and get the help you need.
I’m hoping that by talking “about me”, I will help myself deal with some of my “shit”.
This past weekend I attended a blogger’s retreat, hosted by The Purple Teacup.
It was an amazing weekend that recharged my soul, and it was also an opportunity to meet 25 powerful and inspiring women entrepreneurs and bloggers.
While there, a good friend pulled me aside and urged me to start this new blog. I’ve had a lot of…interesting things happen in my life, and a little bit of self-reflection, therapy, whatever you want to call it definitely wouldn’t go amiss.
My plan is to write letters to “Celia”, my grandmother who is unfortunately no longer in this world. I want to explain what has happened in the last 18 years especially (but not exclusively), and through talking to her I hope to help cope with and process some of my “shit”.
If you are joining me on this journey, welcome and thank you for reading my tiny corner of the interwebs!
