My apologies for the infrequency of my posts here lately. I have gone back to school full-time to complete my bachelor’s degree in professional writing. Realizing this dream is amazing, but it really eats into my time for creative expression. I end up posting to my Facebook page more often, and forget to come here. Fortunately, I am doing a lot of writing for my classes, some of which is blog-worthy and will make it here eventually.
Meanwhile, please like my page at http://www.facebook.com/truthandgraceministries to get more frequent posts. There you will find that I try to do at least a QUOTE OF THE DAY almost every day. Today I shared that I’d been thinking a lot about something near and dear to my heart and I’d come up with the following. It’s not Thursday, but it’s quite the deep thought.
“One of the hardest things in life is letting go of what will simply never be, no matter how much we want it to be or to have been. However, one of the greatest things in life is when someone is willing to bare their soul. This whole world is full of fearful people who are using anger and disconnection to guard themselves. I so appreciate when someone lets down that defense to just. be. real.”
It’s so seldom and so refreshing to stop all the pretense and all the assumptions and just feel what you feel, say what you think, be kind but direct. Be real. I challenge you all to be real. Nothing will change your life as well or as quickly as vulnerability.
