I happened upon this idea created by The Nester, via Lisa Jo Baker who blogs at Gypsy Mama. Basically, a writer writes for 31 days on one topic.
I had already posted when I found out about this idea–but I loved the idea–but my post was about being honest. Writing for 31 days about confessing did not sound like a great idea–but it has been amazing. I’ve let go, I’ve shared, I’ve made a few new friends, I have a little cheering section–the response has been so overwhelmingly wonderful.
I want to be able to encourage and inspire through my blog and I think that slowly I can see a sisterhood forming, mentoring and it makes my heart sing.
Being honest, authentic and trusting is much harder than I thought it would be–but by supporting each other–we know now that we are not alone. We really do share pages out of the chapters of our lives. Be Blessed.
