Let's Talk About The Weather

I haven't spoken much about my word for the year. I've been trying to keep it under wraps. However, I've done some growing lately, and I've learned some things about authentic dream-sharing. If I can't be straightforward with you, my friends, then I'm not very skilled at the sharing part. I want to change that.

Today, I'm a guest over at the amazing new collaborative blog called The Mudroom. Their posts this month have been full of beautiful authenticity, and these friends are unafraid to share their dreams and carry each others' burdens. This is exactly the space where I expect we could easily huddle up by the campfire to share thermoses of tea, swap stories, and sing our secrets to the stars. This place is full of so much that embodies home. So go. Consider this an open invitation. Kick off your shoes and walk right in. Prepare to be greeted with love.

It’s easier to talk about a storm when I’m on the other side of it. It’s easier to look out the window at a gorgeous sunny day and declare that life was hard, but everything is okay now.

Last year was stormy enough, I could have chosen the word to represent all that I went through and moved past. I could hold it up as a trophy of my resilience and strong spirit. Believe me, I love it when I look so good! But, is it the whole truth? Is it the end of the story? It would have been nice to think so.

Instead, the word began to follow me. It would jump out at me from everywhere...
