I’m Dayna. I’m a mom, a runner, a teacher, a writer, and I wanted a place to practice my writing, so here I am. This is a work in progress. I am a work in progress. The things I post here are mostly just my thoughts and ideas about life and love, being single, being a mom, being content, and also longing for more.
I was afraid to share my writing because I was afraid to put something “out there” that wasn’t perfect. And if you are here looking for perfectly written prose, you are in the wrong place, my friend. I have made a promise to myself that I will just write. And that I will stop trying to make it perfect. And I will stop worrying about whether or not everyone “gets it”, but that I’m just going to say what I think here. And if you like it, and it resonates? Awesome. And if not, that’s ok too. Just don’t be a dick.
One thing I’ve learned as an imperfect human is that when I reach out to other imperfect humans, I usually find that we are all just trying to figure this shit out. And I am often grateful to others for sharing their experiences, their words, their fears, their hopes, their ideas…because I find hope and connection and sometimes, a lifeline in what someone else has shared. I hope that in these pages you will find something that you relate to or that makes you feel connected. I hope it just makes you think, and maybe encourages you to embrace your own duality. I’d love to hear if you find something you like here.
Here’s to being imperfect. Yeah!
