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!

That's something we all struggle with at some point. I think it's important to come face to face with it. But Yes, it's hard. It's hard to be raw, but at the same time I think people love you more for being you when you are. :)

Mrs. Flinger has a great point.
Gotta protect yourself, and be open...ah, balance. :P

It's hard for me to blog sometimes too, though my reasons are not as weighty as yours right now, of course. (((hugs)))

I also find that I clam up at times... I'm glad you'll be writing again!
