It's been a long time since I've posted, sorry 'bout that. I've been thinking about writing, but for some reason, I just haven't. I keep thinking that I should but don't have enough time to write a proper post like I want, so I just don't do it. But I figured that I'd better just jump back into it or I may never get back into blogging. So, here I am.
Something that I've been thinking about is the fact that I'm becoming less and less anonymous on this blog. My husband reads this (hey honey), a couple of people I know "in real life" and I've met some really wonderful, godly women, but sometimes I feel like I can't always say what's on my mind because it might hurt someone's feelings or make someone think less of me. Or because someone might not agree with my view. One of the biggest reasons that I started writing this blog was so I could have a place to "get it all out." I know it's not good to keep things bottled up, but when you don't really have any friends, it's hard to be able to vent. This blog was supposed to be my place to vent. I'm not sure what happened. I've thought about starting a completely different, completely anonymous blog and not telling anyone about it, so I can say whatever is on my mind without regard to what others might think of me. But then I realized how stupid that was. At the risk of sounding cliché, I'll share with you one of my favorite quotes, and a couple of proverbs I came across that pretty much sum up how I feel.
"Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind." -Dr. Suess
" A mere friend will agree with you, but a true friend will argue." -Russian proverb
"False friends are worse than open enemies." -proverb
I'm going to be who I am and say what I feel. What I write may contain something you don't like or agree with. That's fine, argue with me about it if you want to. It may contain language you don't like. Don't read it if you don't want to. I want you to read what I write because you want to. So, as Forrest Gump would say, that's all I have to say about that.
