You know what? Sometimes, I definitely share too much. In this blog, and in real life. And then I am left feeling really exposed and like I said too much. Here's the thing, though: I am not going to apologize for being honest. I'm not going to apologize for voicing things that other people feel, but would never, ever say. I have never been anything but genuine, and I'm not going to stop now!
I started thinking, "Oh, what if the people who read that post think this or that about me?" But you know what? That's just the price you pay when you blog. And for me, blogging is a wonderful outlet. I feel SO much better after I've blogged something out, and then I can forget about it.
It's not about some big character flaw, or not realizing the blessings I have. It's about the fact that some days, certain emotions come over you. They do, and that's fine, as long as you don't stay in that place.
And I'm no longer in that place! It was a transient thing. I wasn't sitting around thinking, "I am so jealous! I can't snap out of my jealousy!" It was a momentary feeling, a "snippet", if you will, that I chose to blog about. And, as someone else said, every blog is just a snippet of someone's life.
So, moving on. Or, as Lucy would say, "HOORAY!"
Let's all jump for joy, shall we?
This weekend we are going to a wedding, and I'm trying to figure out what Lulu should wear. I know, such a pressing agenda. The big question is, "Will I have time to watch Passions and Dr. Phil today, with all I have to do?"
We're working with dresses we already have, as Lucy's closet is full and I am a collossal tight wad. (Thanks, Scott.)
This dress or this one?
And what color shoes to go with it?
Stick THAT in your pipe and smoke it.
