Everyone is doing it, I don't want to seem unoriginal
People won't read it
I'm too busy
I'll probably start it and never do anything with it.
This is my first post. This is me saying NO to the NOTS and YES to my SPOT in this world. =)
I am a proud person. I have always internally bragged about my ability to say no. I said no to smoking as a teenager; I said no to drugs; I said no to dating everyone (until I met Mike); I said no to self deprecating girl talk. I was and am very proud of my ability to say no to peer pressure.
What does that have to do with this blog? If I have the desire to do something in life and DON'T because I am worried about what others will think of me... I am succumbing to peer pressure in the worst way! What a hypocrite I have been: the "I can say 'no' to anything" girl. My pride has been robbing me of opportunity.
I am happy to say goodbye to my pride, follow a call, be true to my heart and start making some INK SPOTS. =) I pray that my stories and thoughts to come can spread the truth of God's word, and encourage.
If you are reading this... I love you for it. See... I was wrong... someone did read it. ;) Today, put your heart out there somehow. You know you have heard a still small voice or a longing in your heart. God created your heart and put desires in it for a reason.
Psalm 37:4 (NIV)
Take delight in the LORD,
and he will give you the desires of your heart.
