Exploring the boundaries of what's possible by sharing and "saying what can't be said"


Just testing out the blog on my new website. I don't know why the picture doesn't show.

I love my REAL backdrop.

Thank you for joining me on my newly relaunched web site.

Don't forget to tap the lamp to summon the Planning Genie.

Let me know if you have any questions. Here's the link again.


Today I am going to move my WordPress blog, CreatingLifeOutHere.com over to my NEW WEB SITE (this one): Getting Real with Hilary.

My advisors have told me it's good to have everything in one place. That's a good thing. It will be automatically updated, there will be less confusion, and I will be known as Getting Real with Hilary.

And yet, I am sad. I am saying goodbye to my Wordpress Blog.

Yesterday I made a promise to a friend that if I say the words crazy, insane or weird, I have to pay her a dollar. While my first instinct is to call myself one of those words (the C one), I am not going to. I will share myself instead.

I remember being sad when I got a new car. I didn't like saying goodbye to my old one. I don't like saying goodbye to people. Instead I say, "see you later." I don't like getting off the phone. Sometimes I prolong the conversation just to avoid it.

I guess I just don't like saying goodbye. I don't like the moment of letting go and I avoid it. It kind of hurts. Like someone is peeling my fingers off of something that I don't want to let go of. Like a little kid holding onto something for dear life while his mother makes him let go.

In my mind, I hear myself screaming, "NO, MOMMY NO. I DON'T WANT TO. NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO." I have no idea where that comes from, but I will inquire in my next private moment. (I'm not going to use the W word here even though I think it is).

It's really just that moment. Once I'm gone or the person is gone, I'm absolutely fine. I move on without a thought. It's just that one moment I dislike and try to avoid.

I am going to be curious about it. That's all.

Also, to acknowledge that my blog has been a comfort and great help to me. I've been able to work out feeling stuck, uncomfortable, confused, sad, frustrated, or overwhelmed. I've been able to share my journey - publishing my book, Corona, my children, my mom and many other life events. It has helped me create freedom where there hasn't been any. I don't know where I would be without it. (Almost like having a great friend that I can say anything to - it doesn't interrupt, judge or give advice.)

All of that being said, welcome to my new blog home: Getting Real with Hilary. Thank you for following me and, as always, thanks for listening.
