It’s OK. It’s OK, it’s OK, it’s OK

Sunday night I finished the the second long weekend of my enneagram training. There is so much to process I can barely get my mind around it, even with the 12-hour trip home from Detroit. I will be writing about it soon; it’s one of the next steps I have promised myself I will take. Besides, I have promised too many people to back down now. But I want to get this one post written before it leaves me. The title comes from a fellow participant this weekend. She was so emphatic when she said it — it struck such chord with me — that I began writing this on the spot. Maybe we all need to hear this.

It’s OK.

It’s OK, it’s OK, it’s OK.

It’s OK to be scared.

It’s OK to be angry.

It’s OK to be weak.

It’s OK to be uncertain and confused.

It’s OK to be wrong.

It’s OK to have needs.

It’s OK to want more.

It’s OK to make mistakes and lose it and feel like a fool.

It’s OK to be seen.

It’s OK to not know where you are going.

It’s OK to not be there yet.

It’s OK to grieve for what you think is lost.

It’s OK to long for what you think is missing.

It’s OK to feel betrayed.

It’s OK to not be OK.

It’s OK.

It’s OK, it’s OK, it’s OK.

  1. Hi this is kinda of off topic but I was wanting to know
    if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML.
    I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding
    expertise so I wanted to get guidance from someone with experience.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    • This blog is on WordPress, which is pretty easy to use. I have some experience with HTML and WordPress let’s you see and work in the HTML view if you want to. But you can do a perfectly fine blog and never have to see it. I think most blog platforms use WYSIWYG editors.

      I happen to love working with WordPress. It is a nice balance between being easy to use and easy to personalize. And it’s priced right (free if you want know frills) for the small time user. One word of caution. Go to That’s where folks like you and I can get a blog, upgrade, pick template and find help. WordPress.ORG is the community for professional developers who use WordPress. I don’t think they make that clear enough for the newbie.

      Good luck and happy blogging!
