Back at it!

It's official, I am returning to blogging.

Well, to messy blogging at least.

What I mean is that you might find my blogging to be a bit messy; unorganized, inconsistent, infrequent. When I started blogging I had this idea in my head of it being a consistent and organized undertaking. I also put a lot of expectations on myself to make it... something. What I thought I had to make it I'm not sure, but I definitely had some expectations rolling around in my brain and I often did not live up to them.

So this time around, I'm letting myself off the hook from the beginning and I'm clearly communicating this to anyone who might happen to be reading. You know, just in case you have any expectations and would be tempted to start a public outcry against me if I do not meet your expectations. Because that is a completely realistic possibility, right? Oh, wait, that's just in my head? Well. Moving on...

Another difference about this time around is that I really do have some goals (which I hope to address in another series of posts). And, overall, I'm more confident about who I am and what I have to offer to others. I'm more confident about my story and the process God has brought me through in the past few years. I'm more willing to put myself out there, to make mistakes, and to embrace the fact that perfection is not a prerequisite for action. If I expect everything I do to be perfect, then I will often be disappointed and I will rarely take action. And I don't believe that is the kind of life God has called me (or anyone) to live.

You might wonder what it was that caused me to take the blogging plunge again and I will be happy to answer that in my next blog post. Stay tuned!
