The past 15 months of my life have been really, really challenging. I've struggled with my purpose, my identity, my roles as a friend, sister and mom, and my marriage. I've had the lowest lows EVER. Coming to work has been really tough on certain occasions. But I've taken the opportunity to really grow and try to figure out who in the heck I am. I've felt so inauthentic on the air lately because of this, and I'm so sick of "faking fine." I think there are A LOT of people who are doing the same, and I guess I want to be the one to tell you that you are not alone. To do so in a way of keeping my own privacy, but also being transparent enough to say, "Look, I'm going through some stuff and I want you to know that if you're questioning your worth as a parent, daughter, son, significant other, in your career, in your group of friends, WHATEVER ... I am, too. I may look and sound like I have it all together, but I don't." I've been keeping this journal and filling it with quotes and pages of books and all sorts of stuff that's super positive and uplifting.
