95/100- From all my body parts, this little pinky tip tells a big story. I feel guilty and ashamed about telling the story and I will probably leave out a lot to avoid blaming.
I was this kinda child that just didn't tell when hurt. The smallest cut would be a shameful experience.
So the pinky.... I remember pulling the immense and heavy metal and glass kitchen door behind me. And my pink getting crushed by it. I remember the pain. I remember thinking whether I should tell anybody. I did tell this time, but only after pulling myself together. I remember every step I had to take towards my mother. Keeping control of my emotions and broken self. I probably showed my pink calmly. So it's not that strange that nobody went to a dokter with me.
It was weeks later that somebody noticed that I could not move my finger at all anymore. We went to the hospital where three dokters had to deliberately break it again.
I don't know why I want to share this story now. Maybe because it explains why I am done hiding. We all hide sometimes. But when you hide your self within your self, the world can get pretty scary.
Yesterday was my "day off" where I help my clients from my phone while I care for my two year old, so we decided to take this show on the road! We started the day off by hiking at lime kiln trail in granite falls, then cooled off in the pilchuck river at Morgantown park in Snohomish, and after lunch at home, we met friends at Lundeen Park in lake Stevens!
Poor Wyatt caught some blackberry bushes to the face on our hike, but he walked most of the way and was excited to be outside ALL DAY. He also tried to climb into his backpack for a ride 😂 guess we will need a carrier for him! .
My heart and mind needed yesterday's escape to the forest with our four-legged loves, to help rejuvenate and refresh me so I can keep working hard to help families find and sell their homes this summer! I've been working 7 days a week, early in the morning and late at night, and while I LOVE my job and it's very fulfilling, everyone needs a break now and then too!
