First Time Outsider

9

August 7, 2013 by Katia

I’ve always felt like I don’t belong, which is probably why I moved continents one day, to give that feeling an official reason… I’ve never, however, been an outsider until I became one for a brief moment.

I wrote a post about this, which is featured on one of my absolutely favourite blogs, Finding Ninee, today. My hilarious friend Kristi, the powerhouse behind Finding Ninee, brilliantly describes and illustrates life “in the middle world” with Tucker, her 4 Year Old son. A few months ago Kristi wrote a post titled “A Land of Empathy and Wonder” and the post became a series, Our Land. My post on Kristi’s blog today is part of that series.

    Loved, loved, loved. I rambled a bit over there, so I’ll keep it short here.

For now it is all just a big, shapeless mush of unseparated feelings. There's thankfulness and pride and inspiration and that warm feeling you get when you encounter female friendship and support. Soon I'll sit down and start sorting it all into words and separate the emotion yolks from the thought whites and it will all assume a more concrete and comprehensible shape to help me answer the question my friends ask, I ask, so how was it, but for now it's still a mush and maybe it's better, real-er, that way. I'm thankful for you.#BlogHer17 #blessed #inspiringwomen #friends #VOTY #kindness #selfie #inspiration #amwriting
