On toeing the line.

  Happy Monday, friends. How are you? Full from the weekend and ready to tackle this new week? A bit exhausted and wishing for just one more day before the work week resumes? 
  I'm finding myself somewhere between those two today. I sat down with the intentions to share some heart things. Its been quite a while since I've truly checked in about real life. But I'm feeling a bit hesitant. I love sharing real life things. Processing out loud, if you will. But I think there is a need for balance when it comes to real vs. interwebs life, you know? It's one thing to sit down with a cup of tea or oversized glass of wine and share heart things with a friends. And quite another to share those same things with a people I may or may not know and probably won't have any back and forth with about it all. I love having this outlet and being mostly transparent, because I do love being genuine. More though, I want to make sure I'm not toeing the line. That I'm seeking wise counsel in real life. That I am sharing my heart, but face to face and not with a blank screen that may or may not talk back to me. 
  I have a lot to say about this season I'm in right now. I think, though, that it will probably be best said when the next season fully begins. I'm not necessarily in a hurry for this one to be over. But maybe I am. I go back and forth on that one. Either way, it's still part of the story. I know from experience that sharing any part of any story is a good thing.  So I hope to share this part one day, when I'm maybe onto the next chapter? It seems as if when things become the quietest in this little corner of the internet, life is happening in the biggest ways. So good or bad, I really feel like I should be treasuring life right now. 
  I don't know. I'm curious. Am I the only one who thinks so much about toeing the internet line with how much to process out loud? What's your balance? Do things seem quietest for you too when life really is moving in the biggest ways?

You're right...I'm the same way! I feel like I have so much to write about when life is "perfect" and then when there's real stuff going on, I clamp up...i want to talk about it, but don't necessarily want to share it all over, yet.

Have a great day! (We'll be here to read when you're ready to share...if you want to share. And if you don't? It's your chose!)

I think the fact that you're sharing that you have highs and lows is the key. People don't need to necessarily know all the details of your life, but knowing that you on a journey through something, to me, is enough to say, "Ok...I'm not the only one." Does that make sense? I've definitely had those times where I just don't want to say anything, but I don't have anything else to talk about. It's a tightrope, for sure.
