This all-or-nothing, black-or-white paradigm that I entertain is obnoxiously limiting.
I mentioned my inability to blog when my "blog space" isn't up to par in a Facebook status about a week ago. My friend, Lindsay, replied that basically I should make a 30 day commitment to blogging. Then, when that commitment was finished, I could look at the themes that poured out of my heart most often. While I'm not exactly looking for a theme or POV, I am looking for the freedom share my voice. And no one can hear you when you don't speak, right?
The "shades of gray" are where we grapple with the tension. And it's the those blurred dusky hues that keep me from saying anything at all.
But not this month. I'm taking the challenge. 30 days of blogging it is. Rain or shine... I'm in.
