31 days of Let’s Just Be Honest: Intro

I have a blogger friend that lives in Austin.  I’ve gotten to know a bit over the past few years.  She’s great.  Her name is Jamie Ivey and you should check her out over here at Dreaming Big Dreams.  About a week ago she emailed asking if I wanted to do this 31-day challenge with her where we blog on the same topic for 31 days during the month of October.  The challenge came from NESTING PLACE.  I think this is her fifth year doing it and last year she apparently had 1200 people participating.  I’m actually suppose to have one of those fancy buttons that others put on their website, but I don’t know how to make those.  So I don’t have one.  Do you know how to make one? Can you make one for me ? 🙂 This will be my home page and I’ll have links here daily.

This is a hard challenge for me to do.  It’s blogging on 1 topic for 31 days in a row.  Wow.  Not sure I can do this.  If you follow my blog, you know sometimes I blog weekly, sometimes it’s 6-8 a month and sometimes a whole month comes and goes, in blogging silence!!!  I’ve got a lot going on right now, so I’m hoping a lot will flow and you’ll get to share in the fun, hard and good of it all.

The topic I’m blogging on for 31 days: Let’s Just Be Honest. It will mostly revolve around family and faith.  I hold tighter and tighter to honesty and authenticity as I get older.  Too many sad days thrown down the toilet for fear of not fitting in, wondering if I’m alone in it all or drowned out by insecurity.  I work on honesty and authenticity in my own heart, in my family, in my relationships with my friends and mentors and even in those peripheral relationships we have in the community and at church.  I do believe it can permeate throughout life.  I believe it’s biblical.  It can also be hard.  Being open and honest and not being rude or mean.  Being open and honest and sometimes getting hurt.  Being open and honest and having moments of clarity that bring those feelings of joy and freedom.  Ah, yes … those are the good ones.

    Holly, So glad you are doing this. I am reading another blogger that is doing the 31 day challenge too:). I am the worst at posting-nothing new in forever, but you are encouraging me. Thanks.
