I apologize

For my outburst.  I do appreciate that honesty does make a good blog.  I just feel that sometimes if I blog about what is really swirling through my mind, I would drive people away in droves.
I could open up and bear all here, but then am I being melodramatic or am I being honest and transparent.  I know everyone has skeletons.  Does everyone write about them?  I do read a few blogs that are so candid and honest, warts and all.  I read them regularly.  Not for the thrill of voyeurism, but because I see that it is an imperfect world and we all share the same fear and trials.  Maybe in different form, but it is all the same.  Sick children, high risk pregnancy, infidelity, people we love in prison, infertility.... I have read it all.  It did not make me think any less of them, just gave me time to reflect and pray for them.  Are my problems really as large as I make them in my own mind?  I will work through my thoughts, and may even bring myself to blog about some of them.  Until I do, I will continue to love you for your support and understanding.

Oh Evy, honesty and saying it like it is...is something we count on with you. I can't put into words right now what is in my thoughts with out sounding like a smart a@@. But sometimes life sucks and it's not fair. I know your in that spot right now. Wish we could change it for you. Please know you are in our thoughts and prayers always. Hugs to you

Do you know how many posts I have written in my head only to find I cannot push the publish button? I think something women especially do is release their frustrations and feelings through writing about them and getting it out there.

I agree with Katie and will keep you in my prayers.

Sometimes blogs, Pinterest, magazines, TV... can all seem like dream world. Sometimes it's not bad to let yourself forget everything for a minute and look at pics of cute puppies, obscenely priced homes, etc. The HGTV home giveaway is 100% fantasy for most people, but it gives those who enter a few minutes of dreaming... fantasy.

I've found a few bloggers who share deeper stuff in life, and end up reading more and more of their blog and come back regularly. It makes me feel like I know them. Some of them react so gracefully to tragedy that I'm intrigued... LilBlueBoo/Ashley is like that. The poor lady has been through a lot this year, but her motto is "choose joy." She also posts tons of creative crafts and cute kiddie stuff. If her blog was just about her kid clothes store, I probably wouldn't read it since I can't relate. But, I can relate to a few of her deeper posts. Some other blogs that only post shopping hauls or pricey crap are fun, bit I can only read those so long. Similarly, I could only also read deep, sad stuff for so long too. I've thought about posting some "real" stuff myself, but chicken out. Maybe there's some good balance between sharing real stuff, and sharing fun things... I haven't found that balance. Oh look, a PUPPY....
