After visiting pages (and significant dozing in between)….
Well apparently more than dozing…I woke up this morning with my iPad in my lap and one line of text! I don’t even recall where my thought process was going! I remember I wasn’t going to add much because I was obviously tired, but that’s about it…and some of what I wrote last night was included in the typed text from the night before….
I started this writing challenge with authenticity in mind….I suppose that includes my repetitive nature as well…or perhaps reiterating things of value – quite possibly things I haven’t recognized in myself as I discover a new norm…yeah…quite possible the “prideful, independent” commentary below is addressed to me.
The great thing about this exercise is that I as open myself, it affords God the opportunity to reveal underlying thoughts and patterns through my writing…things I most likely wouldn’t receive too well from others! For instance, I wrote about how my dad wouldn’t let people in his house…close friends…his “house” – his “safety zone” – if you were to take a poll, I wonder how many would say I do the same thing? Thankfully, God has been growing me by leaps and bounds on that front, my “safety zone” today has no resemblance to say…5 years ago….the point is, there’s always room for growth and as we face things that scare us, the safety zone can easily turn unto a “hands off” zone.
All in all, this process is exciting… Exciting to share all the wonderful things God is doing in my life and exciting to think about where He’s taking me next!
