It just feels right.

For years I’ve resisted starting a blog because I didn’t want it to be about me.

I questioned my motives: would I be writing for the attention? To over-share?

 

But then, a few incredibly inspiring ladies (her, her, her, her, and her) began to make me wonder if I was missing out.

 

What if I’m missing out on the chance to be a part of a beautifully encouraging community?

What if I’m missing out on the opportunity to use my God-given influence?

What if it doesn’t have to be about me?

 

I’m going to embrace the offer of community, and let my heart be encouraged by their influence.

I’m going to learn what it means to be real in a way that blesses others.

I’m going to stop shying away from the things God wants to say through my life.

 

I’m going to take a step of faith, and see where it takes me.

 

And it feels so good.

  1. i can’t believe i made your list. i’m truly humbled.
    and i understand your reservations about blog motives. i had to ask myself that same question 2 years ago and i turned off my comments for 2 years while i thought through it. i guess i’m a slow processor. and i STILL make sure i ask myself that same question…it’s a good question to ask.

    anyhow, i’m really excited to see what God has in store for you and your blog!
    much love,

    • Davi! Thanks for stopping by πŸ™‚ Appreciate your sweet words!
      I’m not sure if you remember when I emailed you in response to your “perfection” post, and you asked me in your reply if I blogged? I didn’t then, but that was part of the God-nudge that got me going, so thank you. I’m seriously so bad at emailing- trying to do better, and I honestly have a draft with your name on it sitting in my email πŸ™‚
