I just returned from the bookstore. My heart had been hungering for something that would push me out of my comfort zone. I knew this was the book I wanted to read and I know I will be happy with where it leads me.
I'm going to be perfectly honest with you if you don't mind. Some of you will understand, even identify with the journey I'm about to embark on. Others will pass over what I share because its not their thing or they disagree and that's OK. This isn't for everyone.
I have strong convictions about what I believe. I believe in God, I believe in family and I believe in this country and the freedom it represents. I can be quite stubborn too. If I say "no" I very rarely change my mind. If I say "yes" I honor my word. I long for the old days when a deal was made on your word and a handshake.
I think they used to call it honesty or was it integrity?
So back to the journey, my journey, which I will share with you in bits and pieces as I read this book, meditate on it and apply it to my life. I will not be preaching at you or telling you to do this or that. I will be gravely honest with where this takes me. I'm not a sit on the sidelines kind of girl. I'm not satisfied with good enough, never have been.
This book will be a challenge, it won't be easy.
Ive always wanted to use my blogs as a way to inspire others, offer friendship and life experiences. I hope you will find something here that makes you smile or comforts you during your day.
Wishing you great joy!
