29/31 days of Honesty

I’m almost there!  Only 3 more days until my 31 days of honesty are over.

Sort of bittersweet.  I have poured my heart on these pages.  I have shared my joys and my demons.

If I had to do this all over again I would.  I would also plan ahead and not pick HONESTY as my topic.  I have 11 months to figure out my topic for next year.  Maybe next year it will be fluffy bunnies or . . .

What this writing challenge has given me is an opportunity to figure out what I really do want to write about and the direction of my space here on the web.

A few months ago I would have said that I share my journey on my blog but now I want that thinking to shift to I write, I inspire, I encourage, I create a place for conversation . . . and I am following my passion and quite possibly discovering my purpose–which I know will change, but right now–what I’m doing feels right.

I am reworking my blog.  I am figuring out the balance between writing and the rest of my life–caring for all my people is most important.

Sisterhood, kids, organizing/home management, cooking, projects that worked and not, and how my life is blessed–these are the topics that I want to share and have you join the conversation.  If it is one thing that I have learned this past month is that

I am not alone–I have you along with me on this journey . . . 

Of course, I’ll be giving updates once a month on my weight and how the basement is shaping up too!  Until the basement is complete and I’m at a healthy weight.  I want to live my life in a more intentional and simple way and I can’t do it with all the “stuff” that I have.  I want to be in the moment with my husband and kids, not feeling  a looming of projects, a to-do list or worse a should-have-done list.

Thanks for stopping by–I hope you enjoy the new format as it evolves.

Be Blessed.

    You are right. Life is such a balancing act. Throw in motherhood and whoa! I’m still trying to figure it all out. This is my first time stopping by. I love that you are sharing your heart!

      Thanks for visiting! I was referred to as a “seasoned” mother the other day and I cringed–I think of myself as right in the middle of it all.

      Be Blessed.

    You inspire me. Finding the committment to write for 31 days is wonderful! I wish I could find it too. There are several things I would like to not be afraid to committ to. Keep it up!

      Gotta be honest–I did repost on a couple of busy days! This 31 days has been an awesome door to go through! I love the room I’m in now.

      Be Blessed.

    Isn’t it funny how making a commitment like this can help to focus our plans and dreams? Sounds like you are moving in a good direction 🙂

  4. I’ve enjoyed reading your posts.

    Even though I have a teenager, along with 4 9 and under, I don’t feel like a seasoned mother myself. I feel better at handling certain stuff, and I’m still learning like everyone else.

    Thanks for linking up to Motivation Monday!

I'd like to hear your thoughts!
