The scariest thing about writing has always been honesty. Blogging is no different: I talk about my life, and lately it’s become a time of apprehension.
This was going to be a long post, but no one really cares for the story that led to some decisions. I am going to say what those decisions are:
- Even if I’m my only reader, I will keep blogging. The same goes for writing: It’s all about expressing yourself.
- C.S. Lewis said “True humility is not thinking less of yourself; it is thinking of yourself less.” I need to contemplate that thought–I need to work out how to live it.
- I have been using Tumblr less. I don’t miss it yet.
I would really like to share some things out of my journal. It captured the power of honest writing, and I want to embrace it. How can I be a good writer if I’m not being honest? The Word became flesh, and that Word was the Truth. Lately He has been teaching me a lot of things about confidence.
It’s been a long summer and very important to my spiritual life, and life as a writer. Everything has a purpose–even difficulty, it is all to teach you an important lesson. Don’t be afraid of truth, honesty, light. I guess that’s what I learned these past few weeks, and it reflected a lot in my journal.
I like my journal better when I’m honest with myself. Let’s see if I can get the same effect on my blog. I hope you’ll come back!
