I won't lie to you. I've been conflicted.
I'm "cooling" on the idea of having a blog because why do I have it? I hoped that it would be an opportunity. So that distance or schedule would not get in the way of a sitting-at-the-kitchen-table-over-coffee-style chat - while obviously one-sided.
I like the idea of journaling. I like writing. I like stories and hearing stories from others. I like hearing about the best thing thing that happened this week. Or the hardest thing. I like what someone learned about their child or their husband.
I don't like preaching.
And EVERYBODY preaches. Especially the news.
I watch TV. I really love PBS. It shows me lives and cultures that I would otherwise never have seen. But they can be VERY preachy.
Facebook can get preachy. Twitter is a preach-a-thon. And music isn't exempt. It just seems that everywhere I've looked for a while is telling me what to do/not do and how to think/not think.
I'm just topped-off. I'm overloaded on opinions. And that's where I get conflicted.
I'd like to share my life with people. But part of my life is developing, practicing and then possibly scrapping entire systems of values - the "why" behind what I do. Making me, depending on the reader, one more opinion thrown out there in a static-y sea of buzzing thought.
So, personally, I'm on a quest for truth. The Word of God is truth. Jesus is truth. And, I'm leaving everyone else to their opinion.
So please, don't take my word for it.
