I was looking for a word to describe my day.
A word to describe my feeling.
A word to echo the mood I'm in or any insight that landed in my lap today.
But I didn't find just one. I found many. I found:
Drained, Resigned, Exhausted, Livid, Pissed Off, Overwhelmed, Disbelief, Stunned, Bothered, Separated, Antagonizing, Desperate, Frightened, Concerned, Worried, Giving Up, Releasing, Accepting, Retreat, Firm, Boundaries, Peace, Self-Love, Love, Cherish, Respect, Respect, Respect.
I landed on Respect, but all the words prior are equally as important.
Because just like an onion - every layer holds the onion together.
Every layer add to its weight, to its volume, to its taste.
In April 2020, while experiencing her first ever global pandemic, Tamar Pelzig pledged to write something every day, even if it's only a word, so she welcomed to the world a daily blog to keep her creative writing wheels rolling.
