I just read Lucy’s blog again and was brought right up short…again. Her honesty always encourages me. She seems to have found the way to be honest and completely human without making us sort through the laundry so to speak. I think of a lot of things to blog: feelings, ideas, frustrations and struggles, but I don’t really feel comfortable in the end to share them on blogspot.
I suppose I am overreacting to the no-holds-barred-tell-all that happens sometimes in the world of Facebook and Blogger. And the result is that I tend to come across as a “surface” person. And I am not. But I’ll admit that it is really easy to slide over the real stuff of life and simply talk about the daffodils. It’s less bother and there are fewer words to eat and apologies to make.
Two years ago when I started blogging; I made a commitment to be an encourager and a helper in all that I posted. And I think I have been a little anxious to not feel too vulnerable on the one hand or preachy on the other. I really do want to aim better at what I started out to do in the beginning.

PS I’d be open to constructive criticism, as well. :)
