Brushing off the blog…

Every time I decide to post something on my blog after completely ignoring it for months, I feel a pang of shame. Has it been THIS LONG since I posted something? If I post something now, will people wonder why I’m even bothering since it seems like I’ve abandoned the whole thing? It’s a little scary jumping back in and I always find myself making excuses so people won’t think poorly of me for being so inconsistent. I get distracted and busy and life seems to vie for my time and I forget about the blog until something inspires me to write again.

So here I am, dusting off the blog (it’s very dusty in here and I hate dusting). But I feel the spark of inspiration so I’m going for it again. This time my inspiration comes from something a friend posted on her blog (allthiscrazygrace.com). There is something called “31 Days” that happens in October every year. You pick a topic and write about it every day for the entire month of October (31 days). I’ve written about shame and vulnerability on my blog before. It’s something I’m very passionate about and it’s something I’ve been chewing on and processing for over 5 years, ever since I saw Brene Brown’s TED Talk on “The Power of Vulnerability”. Lately I’ve been feeling constipated in a sense – there are so many thoughts and ideas and connections around this topic rolling around in my head. I need to get them out…onto the page to get some cohesion to them, to help me put it all together. I’ve been meaning to do this for a couple of months and it hasn’t really happened. When I heard about “31 Days” I thought this might be just the opportunity and motivation to get me doing what I’ve been wanting to do.

So starting October 1st, I’m going to be putting down my thoughts on shame and vulnerability, every day for the month of October. I hope you’ll join me and ultimately I hope that you will be encouraged by my journey and what I’ve learned. It has been life-changing for me and I believe it can be for all of us.

See you on the 1st!
