listen to your broccoli writing exercise

So y'all may have noticed that I stopped blogging late last fall.

No, really?

I had several epiphanies, I made some changes, I started really talking to my best girlfriends about the things that were on my heart.  I backed way off from conversing with anyone I did not know really well.  This was a huge change for me:  I withdrew.  I was thinking big thoughts and wanted to be left alone except for my inner circle of women friends.

I am needing to re-enter the world of the communicative, but tentatively.  I cannot be totally authentic and share my heart on this blog, because it is a public blog.  So I am trying to figure out what to say here in this space.  Sticking to my blogging schedule will probably help.

I am the sort of person who strives to be authentic, genuine, without pretense.  I don't have the emotional energy to make polite conversation much these days because of the heavy things I am thinking. 

But I am here.  And I want to write.  So stay tuned.  Thanks for sticking with me!

Premades For A Purpose

One of my very favorite blog layout/background sites is called Simply Fabulous Blogger Templates .  The creative force behind this site is a woman named Lena.  She and her family are in the process of adopting, and she is using premade blogger templates as a way to raise money to afford adoption.  I have used many of her free templates in the past, but decided that I wanted to support her adoption right now.  Please check out her website, her great talent and thoughtful creativity, and read about her Premades For a Purpose!
