I’m so thankful I can incorporate my one word, thankful, into my favorite Friday activity – Five Minute Friday, which I confess takes longer than five minutes for me because I’m a
deep slow thinker, but only takes five minutes to read. That counts, right? This week, the word is open.
I believe there’s something to be said for being open. For pouring out my heart. For sharing my life with others in this crazy internet world.
I think it’s easier for me to open up here because I don’t have to see your faces. I don’t have to see your reactions. I don’t have to see you cringe when I tell you the things I’ve lived through, that make me feel ashamed. It’s safer for me.
And at the same time, I think being open is helpful to others. It gives them courage to face themselves, to know they are not alone.
So yeah. I’m thankful to be open with you about my life.
