31 Days, Day 23: Different

Committing to writing for 31 days is something that has surprisingly been easier than I anticipated it to be. However, over the last few days, I've felt the words slip out of me. I want to write. I have 100,000 things I'm grateful for. I have opinions, thoughts, challenges, struggles, dreams, hopes and a desire to put these things down onto paper. I have a life. A beautiful, crazy, imperfect life. But, right now.....the words seem to be stuck in me, unable to filter from my brain, down through my fingers.

Lately I've been over thinking it. See, most people aren't bloggers. Sure, lots of people do blog but, I know very, very few of them in real life. Possibly I've been focusing too much on the fact that I know I'm different....most people don't do what I do and once in awhile when I really think about that, I get terribly self conscious and I just want to stop.

This morning I read a post from The Gypsy Mama titled "For the days when your blog or your life feel small" and it was exactly what I needed to hear. Most of the time I feel like a tiny fish swimming in a big sea and although we aren't all called to blog, and very few of us actually probably want to, the truth is that I do love it. This is a way that I share my imperfect story, my life that is sweet, ugly, blessed and real. I know this makes me different and I don't really love that but, I'm working on being okay with it.
