Words cannot describe my complete surprise and full joy by Lisa-Jo picking my tiny blog out of hundreds for her 5 Minute Friday feature of the week last week.
I saw the email of her comment and my mouth literally fell open in astonishment baked with pure happiness. What a wonderful gift, this icing on the cake as Lisa-Jo puts it. Supporting one another even more in a burst of resonance and understanding at the power of words.
So to say thank you, doesn’t begin to cover it. Yet I cannot wait until tomorrow to celebrate how our Father is speaking through other sisters in Christ. I’ll be looking for the lucky lady in the featured section. Won’t you? Be sure to take some time and support each other. Some days in particular, you never know, it could just mean the world.
So here we are – a new week, a new stream of consciousness. Today’s 5 minute Friday – RISK.
Setting myself up to be hurt again.
Stepping out into continued change.
Speaking thoughts into listened space and bolstering myself
for whatever response might come.
There are many ways to risk. Many ways to live in trepidation of choice. Of being who I am. Of knowing that there will be times, far more than one, where being me isn’t good enough.
We are never guaranteed commiseration from other people. We’re not promised understanding from either friends or strangers. When we decide to open ourselves up out into the wide open, rushing wind of speculation — we are signing a waiver (whether we admit it or not). A waiver of admittance that there is a grand likelihood that things we do or say may not blow over in a welcome ease. There may be choppy, tumultuous waves in the wake of our personalities, choices, lifestyles or actions.
