When I created this space my greatest intention, although I had many, was to create a space where women, all women, could see themselves. See themselves, no matter what they struggle with or are growing through.
I want each and every woman who comes here to know there is someone in or who has been in a similar space as them.
Because I got really focused on trying to “brand” my site, and even myself, I have shyed away from speaking out. Sometimes, even when I really felt that I wanted to.I want each woman who comes here to know there is someone in or who has been in a similar space Click To Tweet
I have realized with all of this stuff that’s been happening in the news as of lately, that even though that was my intention, I shouldn’t do it at the expense of limiting what I say. Limiting for fear that someone may not relate, feel offended or feel I’m too honest, or too transparent.
That would be the equivalent of not decorating my house the way I wanted, because you might not like it when you come to visit.Not speaking my mind is the same as not decorating my house how I want, cause you might not like it… Click To Tweet
WARNING: This is my home, and it will be sprinkled with some things you may not like.
I mean honestly, when God was handing out other talents like singing, athleticism, smarts and so on, he blessed me with the gift of transparency.
Meaning that I am an open book. If you wanna know something, as long as it does not threaten my family or my very private details, I am usually willing to share.
With that said, being in an uncomfortable space, feeling I am any of the things that I listed above, accomplishes one of my main goals. It gives you an opportunity that I hope for each and every one of us. And that’s growth.
If you look at the space and analyze your own thoughts, experiences, beliefs and whatnot, and then ask yourself “how can this uncomfortable space help me grow” then it opens a door for dialogue and forward progress.
Lord knows we desperately need forward progress.
So as I have thought about this recently it has reminded me to take off a filter I didn’t even realize I had put on myself. This here blog is mine, and this is my home. And I am deciding there will undoubtedly be times that you (and I) feel uncomfortable here, and I propose that we grow through it.Lord knows we desperately need forward progress. Click To Tweet
You with me?
