I was listening to one of my favorite podcasts, Terrible Thanks for Asking, and the popular phrase, “Good Vibes Only” came up. Together the host and the guest discussed how unrealistic and limited that phrase is. No one has good vibes only and it’s unfair to ask that of people. The -new and improved- phrase they settled on was, “Healthy Mix of Vibes.” And that’s what this blog will be.
As you may have guessed from the title of this blog, there will be some sad vibes. I was married and my husband died. And that fucking sucks. (Oh yeah, this is a cursing friendly space). The next three posts will share the beginning of my grief journey and there will be a lot of sad vibes. And mad vibes. But there will also be funny vibes and hopeful vibes. And later on we’ll touch on online dating as a widow, and a Christian, during a global pandemic-so there will definitely be some awkward vibes. AKA a healthy mix of vibes.
There’s a lot of things I want this blog to be but as every English teacher has tried to teach you, ‘show don’t tell.” So if you want to join the journey please subscribe. And feel free to follow me on Instagram @widowedandwriting.
PS Intro posts are the worst, so the next post is already up. After this you can expect new posts about once a week.
